Other than weddings, and our baby’s first birthday party, the biggest event for a Southern Belle is the Family Reunion. Whether it is annually, or every two to five years, uniting with your family members over time is never taken lightly when it comes to southern families. Therefore, Family Reunions must be in a place where all participating members can attend while feeling comfortable. All family members of all ages should have something to interest them, which is why the resort city must be in a nice location where there is accessibility to plenty of different attractions and activities.
