Are you on the committee to plan your family reunion for 2018? If you have chosen to have a western-themed reunion, you're in for some fun days ahead. From putting out the word to all family members to arranging for old west tours, here are some ideas that might help you to plan a western-themed family reunion that will probably go down in history as the best reunion ever.
Think Of Where You Want To Go -
Of course, where you go on your reunion will be largely determined by how long family members can stay. And, another consideration is how much money each family can spend. Think of talking to travel agents to get the best price on things like accommodations and old west tours.
- In Colorado, consider going to look at places like Mesa Verde National Park.
- If you choose Arizona, think of including old mines in your old west tour.
- If you're headed to Utah, you'll probably want to include downtown Salt Lake City.
- In California, your old west tour will probably include the different missions.
Highlights Of Old West Tours -
You might add a lot of fun to your family reunion by actually taking a complete old west tour on a travel bus. Besides traveling in comfort, your tour guide will know exactly where to go and what to see.
- Expect to learn the history of pioneers, including pioneer women of the west.
- Have fun watching enactments of gunfights between pioneers and Indians.
- Meet real cowboys and real cowgirls along the way.
- Learn about the lives of Native Americans in the olden days.
You've more than likely seen movies like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and How The West Was Won. Remember the stagecoaches you saw? Remember the old homesteads you saw? Well, you'll see the real thing when you go on tours of the old west. You'll probably visit real cemeteries where you'll see the final resting place of outlaws, lawmen, gunfighters and Native American chiefs. On your tour of the old west, you'll walk on actual wooden sidewalks that lead the way to fun gift shops and to saloons. You might end up buying sarsaparilla and hoarhound candy to take home with you. Or, you might have the fun of buying pioneer dolls and antique quilts that were made many years ago. Don't forget to take lots of pictures. Those will later remind you of your wonderful western-themed family reunion.
