Family and Class Reunion Ideas


Find great tips for fun family reunion locations, plus class reunion ideas here.

Summer vacation is the perfect time to plan your family reunion, and spending time outdoors is a great way to reconnect with the family and enjoy each other's company. Renting an RV with Cruise America is an increasingly popular way to bring the family together without spending money on hotel rooms. Plus, RV rentals allow you to choose whatever family reunion locations you want - national and state parks, beaches, famous landmarks and more.

Another benefit to choosing RV camping for your family reunion or class reunion is simple logistics. If your family is spread out across several states, many family members will need to travel long distances to get to the event. With RV rentals, your family can travel to the event in their spacious RV and have a place to stay throughout the reunion. And if your family reunion destination is a relative's house or old homestead, your RV will keep the house from getting too crowded, so you can stay with your family without burdening them.

  • Look for family reunion destinations that are as central as possible. If family members will be coming from many states, either pick a location that's in between your family's homes, or choose a location near where the majority of family members live. If family reunion locations are too far away, some of your favorite relatives may not be able to attend, while a shorter drive would make a feasible road trip.
  • Think of fun activities for family members of all ages. No matter which fun family reunion locations you choose, make sure there will be plenty of ways to entertain the kids, plus activities for adults and older family members. Try planning hikes, biking trips or other outdoor activities if your family is on the active side. Or, bring board games and crafts along for family fun. One great idea? Work on a family scrapbook during your trip. The whole family can contribute to it, and it's a great memento of your vacation together.
  • Check your family's budget before suggesting family reunion locations. Expensive destinations like theme parks or resorts may not be affordable for all family members. Many reunion planners have found that state or national parks make the best family reunion locations. Remember, family reunions are about spending time together - not spending money.
  • If you need class reunion ideas, try looking for a memory-filled location near your alma mater. Think back: where did you go on your senior trip? What are some of the popular destinations in your hometown? Find a location you visited with your classmates and relive the memories on your class reunion.

Plan ahead and choose your class and family reunion locations wisely, and you're sure to have a great trip. See Cruise America's vacation planning guide for more great ideas!
