We have a reunion every year, and in a different city. This year I am planning the reunion here in Arlington, Texas but don't know where to have it. Where are some great spots to have it?

I want to start a family reunion tradition. We don't have one now but our family is getting pretty large with brothers and sisters moving away with kids, often to different states. My sister and I have decided to start to plan a family reunion and we hope to have it be a yearly event. What I am wondering is if anyone out there does this and if they have any advice? What works for you? Any tips or advice would be appreciated. Jules in TX
