Traveler's Aid: Family Reunions (5/24/2002)

Real Audio Listen in RealAudio      help Need audio help?

We get a lot of listener mail asking about one of the most popular summer things to do: family reunions. Over 20 million people will visit 400,000 reunion events this year -- cruises, dude ranch getaways, picnics in the park. There are a lot of great resources to help you plan your own reunion, from top to bottom.

First, here are some good books: "Family Reunion Handbook" by Tom Ninkovich, and "Your Family Reunion: How to plan, organize and enjoy it" by George Morgan. Both have time tables, worksheets, even where to get the T-Shirts -- everything.

There are also a lot of Web sites out there to help you -- Reuniontips.com is a good one, as is FamilyTravelForum.com. And, there are many travel agents who specialize in family travel.

We have lots of good advice, for planners and attendees alike. And Craig Richards from Familyreunion.com shares his insights as well.
