With more than 72 million adults reuniting with family since 2000, and one-third traveling more than 500 miles, according to the TIA, FTF has provided reunion planners with 10 family-tested, top-value options. Read more about the Top 10 Getaways for Family Reunions winners.
“Whether families are planning a vacation with Grandma or hundreds of close relatives,” notes FTF publisher John Manton, “advance preparation is key to a successful reunion.” He adds, “Those who resolved to make 2005 a Reunion Year can use this news to book their first-choice destination right away.”
The Top 10 Getaways For Family Reunions award winners were determined by FTF from more than 100 nominations made by travel experts, contributing editors and 80,000 site visitors. By considering and evaluating their location, available transportation, variety of accommodations in different price ranges, activities for all ages, unique attractions, dining options and group discounts before making site inspections, FTF discovered the top value reunion destinations.
