All American Road Trips

All told, over 25 writers, editors, designers and marketers lent their talent to produce this guide.

Our goal is to offer inspiration and guidance to families seeking to hit the road again this summer, fall or winter. After all, with the COVID-19 situation, you haven’t been out in a while! Not to worry, though, as these talented writers reflect on some of their favorite family vacation destinations and lend inspiration and advice on how to “road trip” better. Our editors hunted down photos and fact-checked from their spare bedrooms in this all-hands-on-deck project.

I hope you enjoy the debut of All-American Road Trips and that you’ll share it with your family and friends so they too can experience the joys of travel once again.

Essential Accommodation Tips for an
Unforgettable Reunion

Hotels have long been an accommodation of choice for reunions thanks to their convenience, consistency and amenities. However, reunion planners can now select from traditional lodging like hotels, resorts, and bed and breakfasts, or something less conventional like a ranch, RVs, glamping, or home rentals. These alternative accommodations offer reunions plenty of similar benefits that a hotel does, but with a different environment in which to spend time with each other.

By weighing the pros and cons of these accommodations, this whitepaper aims to assist reunion organizers in the planning process and help them select the best home base for their vacation.
