Family reunions celebrate our families’ traditions and heritage. They give us the opportunity to reacquaint ourselves with family members that we don’t get to visit with often, and introduce our children to aunts, uncles and cousins they may have never met. The North State is full of wonderful settings to hold the perfect family reunion. If it were up to you to plan your family reunion, where in the North State would you hold it?
