Question about Finnish

One sentence in my book says, "Tänä iltanako menemme serkkusi luo kylään.", yet another sentence in the same book says, "Käyttekö usein kylässä serkkunne luona?"

Is the difference between using "luo" vs. "luona" because of the difference in the verb (mennä vs. käydä), or is this for some other reason? I am wondering because my book says to use "luo" when indicating movement, but it uses "luona" for the second sentence as you can see above.

Thanks in advance!
