How to Plan a Family Reunion at the Beach
Reunions are events in themselves, and when it’s for family members it takes it to a whole different level of planning.
Family reunions can be detail oriented, time consuming and stressful. Accommodations, travel, meals, entertainment and all the details associated with planning a family event can be done with ease on Alabama’s beaches.
Before booking accommodations for a reunion, research lodging options to see who offers the best group rates. If you are on a conservative budget, fall is a great time to visit Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. The weather is wonderful and rental rates drop for the shoulder season.
The Alabama Gulf Coast is an easy drive-in destination. Interstate 65 and Interstate 10 allow access to Alabama’s beaches, and the Baldwin Beach Express is one of the fastest and most direct routes to Orange Beach. If flying, Mobile Regional Airport is just over an hour from Gulf Shores and Pensacola International Airport is less than an hour away. A family reunion at the beach is definitely worth the commute.
