Family reunions can be a lot of fun. You get to see family members you may not have seen for a couple of years. Perhaps, there are ‘new’ family members you haven’t met. The good news is there are plenty of family reunion locations throughout the U.S. The possibilities are endless!
It’s important to make arrangements early and find a place that works for everyone. This is a good way to prevent family feuds! If you wait too long to plan your family reunion, your favorite hotel or resort could be booked solid. Also, family members may not be able to attend due to previous travel plans.
How to Plan a Family Reunion, Cut Costs, and Have a Good Time
Beach family reunion locations are popular. The most popular beach vacation destination is Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. If you have your heart set on having your family reunion in SC then you better book your location early. Otherwise, the entire family will be left out in the cold.
Tie your family reunion to an important date
If grandma and grandpa are celebrating 65 years of marriage, celebrate their special day at the family reunion. Building your family reunion around a holiday could be tricky. Big holiday’s like Memorial Day and the Fourth of July are during the travel ‘high season.’ You may not be able to find accommodations or someone may not be able to attend.
Hold your family reunion in the off-season
It may be cost effective to hold your family reunion in the off-season. Family reunion locations such as Florida, North and South Carolina, Georgia, and other popular destinations can be expensive during the ‘high season’ which is usually during the summer. Some family members may not be able to afford to attend. Take this into consideration when planning your family reunion. Holding in the off-season could work for everyone.
Meet at a family member’s home
Holding your family reunion at a family member’s home is another way to cut costs. Perhaps, a family member with five or more acres of land will be willing to host the family reunion. Everyone can bring something, a hot meal, desert, or soft drinks. Of course, cash would probably be accepted too!
Decide on the size of your family reunion
Your family reunion doesn’t have to be large. A small and intimate family reunion could be more inviting. First-time family reunion planners may want to plan a smaller affair. You’ll get a sense of what it’s like to plan reunion.
Raise money for your family reunion
Send out an email blast and ask family members to have garage sales, silent auctions, raffles, car washes, rummage sales, etc. to raise money for your family reunion.
Plan cost-effective family activities
Ask family members what they like to do. Ask family members what their kids like to do. You can’t please everyone. But you can plan activities ahead of time to keep people entertained. Ideas are:
- Renting a karaoke machine.
- Set up a sound system outside (if you’re holding at your home).
- Booking golf outing.
- Going to the park.
- Renting a ‘bouncy castle’ or other inflatable rentals.
Now you know how to plan a family reunion, cut costs, and have a good time! Keep the lines of communication open. Correspond via email or Facebook. Keep in mind that everyone may not have a computer or Facebook page. Contact family members when you have the date, time, and location settled. Keep family up-to-date with the latest information. Happy planning!

With so many choices, it’s nice to know you have a friend in GuestQuest.
In today’s global environment, it’s commonplace for employees to travel frequently for work.
If you have (or your significant other has) an upcoming assignment to an interesting locale, why not turn the trip into a family vacation getaway that both of you (and maybe the kids, too) can enjoy?
For instance, if you’re being sent to St. Louis for a conference at one of the many Missouri hotels, why not stay there for an extra day or two? Though your employer most likely won’t cover the cost for anyone you bring with you, it still can be a serious bargain.
Consider this hypothetical scenario:
Don and Dawn are a couple living in Salem, Massachusetts. Dawn is sent to Williamsburg, Virginia to meet with a client on Thursday, Friday, and Monday. Her company is paying for her airfare plus a room in one of those old, lovely Virginia hotels. If Don comes along, they only have to pay for his airfare, meals and incidentals during the trip because the room is already covered. This translates to a fabulous family vacation getaway at an inexpensive price!
Of course, there is a caveat to working and traveling: You do have to get your work accomplished (and do it well, to boot.) During the times you’ll be required to have your nose to the grindstone, your companion(s) can take the opportunity to sightsee, visit the beach, or just hang out at the hotel pool.
This change of pace, though perhaps not entirely stress-less for you (after all, you’re on the clock, so to speak), will still be a refreshing opportunity to spend some time with your loved ones in a casual environment.
And who knows?
You might find that you love your short weekend in Myrtle Beach so much that you and your spouse decide to rent one of the South Carolina condos there for two weeks next spring.
GuestQuest would like to know how you turn your work-related journeys into family and/or friend adventures. Please leave a comment today!
