Plan a 2017 VACATION in the ‘Big Easy’ with shipmates, family and friends.
NEW ORLEANS! When you hear the name, you think of Bourbon Street, river boats, food, plantations, swamps, haunted history and the National WW2 Museum. And they are ALL included, at lower negotiated prices, in our ‘Land’ reunion Plan-of-the-Day (POD). The Reunion Committee personally visited every site listed on the POD for ‘Grant Group’ activities. Check-out each of the activity websites listed on the POD.
Our reunion will be held ONE block from the French Quarter and Bourbon Street and within six blocks of most of the major sites in the ‘Big Easy’. The famous New Orleans ‘Saint Charles Streetcar’ route stops within 50 feet of the hotel’s lobby. Other streetcars (Canal Street, Riverfront, Loyola) are quickly accessible within ONE block of the hotel and a $3/day ‘Jazzy Pass’ gives unlimited daily use of all the streetcars and busses.
NOW is the time to plan a vacation and/or reunion with some of your Grant shipmates in New Orleans balmy average October temperatures of 82 (hi) and 64 (lo). Bring a shipmate who has NOT been to a reunion! They will thank you for it. Family and friends are also always welcome to attend our reunions with you to share in your submarine ‘experience’ and to see the submarine camaraderie first-hand.
Check-out the POD and reserve your hotel room NOW.
