Extended families used to live closer to one another – a Sunday afternoon picnic was all you needed for a family reunion and relatively (get it?) easy to put together. These days, our families are separated by thousands of miles, financial obligations and crazy family schedules and commitments. It’s simply not as easy as getting in the car and driving across town or out to the family farm any more. (If it is still that easy for you - count your blessings!)

Chances are good that you're searching for a family reunion gathering spot in a town some distance away or in an area you're unfamiliar with.

Let's use each other to search out and share the best family reunion locations.

Think about it -

The best fishing holes, huckleberry patches, hometown restaurants and family entertainment options are usually not found in the yellow pages or in flashy full-color advertisements. In my experience, the best spots are the ones recommended to you by friends and family or trusted locals.

With that thought in mind...
