Planning a Family Reunion
Planning a family reunion? Branson has been a family reunion destination for years and is recognized by Midwest Living Magazine as one of the top picks for Family Reunions. Thousand Hills Resort topped its lodging picks with its selection of secluded cabins, condominiums surrounding a beautiful 18 hole golf course or lakefront condominiums with boat slips. Read on for the Reunion Planning advice from the professionals.
To help with the legwork in town, don't be afraid to make use of local chambers of commerce. Since they like to bring people to their area, they are usually more than happy to help you with location ideas, lodging and dining listings, and recreation and sightseeing opportunities. Also the Thousand Hills staff does an exceptional job of hosting and assisting with Branson family reunions.
While most people think of summer as the time to hold family reunions, don't limit yourself to just that. You can plan around family milestones. These dates might include silver or golden anniversary, weddings, graduations or a grandparent or elder’s birthday. You also may consider "long weekends" such as Memorial Day since that makes it easier for business people to get time off. Some families prefer to take advantage of "off season" value rates, which extend from January to the end of May. Contract the group sales staff at Thousand Hills Resort to assist with value dates. In Branson, holidays such as Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, and Labor Day are celebrated with parades, festivals, fireworks, or other exciting activity.
The first step in planning a reunion is to select a site and get commitment from family members. The ideal reunion site is one which is accessible and affordable for the majority of those people you want to attend. Branson Missouri is centrally located so most families can drive but if you need flights they just opened a new airport with taxi and shuttle service. Thousand Hills Resort is located in the heart of Branson within minutes of shopping, restaurants, theatres, shows and two beautiful lakes.
Amenities that will keep the family entertained include seven pools, tennis court, concierge service, exercise facility, basket ball court, children’s playground area, grills, wireless internet and complimentary well lit parking lots. The resort has three banquet rooms with full service catering and a well trained staff to assist with planning your itinerary. Renting a conference room is a very good idea for a family reunion. Since the point of a reunion is to "re-unite," being able to have a common place to come together and socialize, play cards or other games, and enjoy other bonding activities is really important. The Thousand Hills sales team will customize your event by setting up a family reunion web site, purchase group tickets to theaters and attractions and even make group dinner reservations for all your family reunions in Branson.
