Bringing relatives together for a family reunion can be a wonderful experience. Like most things, though, its success requires proper planning. Consider these tips:

  • Preferences: Develop a consensus among relatives where to have the reunion to help broaden participation. Whether you choose a huge resort or a cozy inn, you’ll want a place that can hold at least one large reunion dinner.
  • Activities: Choose an area with lots of sightseeing and activities. Some family members may want to extend their vacations beyond the reunion or take side trips.
  • Price: Pick a destination that most families can afford. Cruise ships and resorts are popular for reunions because of their all-inclusive pricing packages that include meals, activities and shows.
  • Date: Consider a reunion during a holiday or a long weekend for families with school-aged children. Choose a time of year with appropriate weather and the activities that interest your family. Your AAA Travel Agent can tell you when a destination is less crowded and whether off-season discounts are available.

The larger the gathering, the longer the planning time. It may take 18 to 24 months to organize a reunion for a large family scattered across the country. Your local AAA Travel Agent can help! They’re experienced at arranging group tours. We’re a full-service travel agency and can provide information on locations, accommodations, transportation and group discounts.
