Restart Your Travel With a Fall FAM

Are you tired of staying home and ready to start traveling again? Would you like to discover new places to take your groups in 2021? Do you have time this fall to visit some of America’s favorite group travel destinations?

If so, we have a trio of great opportunities for you.

The Group Travel Leader Inc. will be organizing three familiarization trips this fall, and we’d like you to be part of them. Our OnSite program will take groups of our readers to New Orleans Plantation Country; Louisiana’s No Man’s Land; and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Each trip is hosted by a local convention and visitors bureau or state tourism office, and they all promise to be entertaining and educational experiences.

Here are details and highlights for each of our FAM programs this fall:

• Louisiana’s River Parishes (September 13-17) — Discover the history and architecture of plantation homes between New Orleans and Baton Rouge, as well as swamp tours and one-of-a-kind culinary experiences.

• Louisiana’s No Man’s Land (October 25-29) — Join hosts from Louisiana Travel as we explore Lake Charles, Natchitoches and other parishes in the western Louisiana area known as No Man’s Land.

• Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (December 6-9) — Celebrate the season on the Grand Strand as we attend holiday performances at theaters such as the Carolina Opry and the Alabama Theatre and enjoy festivities at other area attractions.

On each trip, The Group Travel Leader staff will work closely with local hosts to ensure guests can travel safely.

“We’re already having conversations with our FAM partners and reviewing their health and safety plans,” Tyner said. “We’re confident our hosts will show us all a great time while keeping everyone’s safety a top priority.”

All accommodations, sightseeing and meals are included during the OnSite FAMs. Participants will be responsible for covering their own transportation to and from the host cities.

To apply for any of these familiarization trips, visit and fill out the registration form. Each trip is limited to 20 travel planners, so don’t delay. And check back frequently for new FAM opportunities, including trips to Alabama and Louisville, Kentucky, in 2021.
