1. Delegate duties. Pick family members to contact visitor centers, check out accommodations, and coordinate payments. Assign youngsters to research and report on the chosen area.
2. Negotiate group rates for lodging, transportation, event tickets, and meals.
3. Plan flexibly. Where possible, offer options for recreation activities. Build in plenty of down time.
4. Bring family memorabilia. Remember, the trip is a reunion as well as a vacation. Bring copies of old photographs and other treasures (but leave the originals at home).
