Reunion Cities

How do you pick the best city for your reunion? Whether you and your family decide to organize a reunion in your own area or in another city/state, once the “top picks” have been selected it is a good idea to contact the local Convention and Visitors Bureau for those areas. They will be able to inform you about big events throughout the year, which hotels are new or renovated, as well as the best value dates for your reunion. Many times, they have a reunion specialist on staff to help you get additional discounts and group rates for group housing, attractions, entertainment, and transportation.

Some cities are naturally more expensive than others. Typically cities are broken into “tiers” with the top tier considered very large cities (also very expensive). I’ve been searching around the world wide web to break down US cities in to up to date tiers. Please keep in mind, this is not a complete list and these choices are based on my personal determination and study. Feel free to comment any factual updates. I will also add links to the city’s CVB for ease for any reunion committees reading this. Throughout 2017 I will also be selecting at random cities to showcase on the blog from nightlife to family friendly activities (and everwhere in between) in hopes to boost more travel. Happy planning!
