Top Adventure Resorts Announced


GULF SHORES, Ala. (April 03, 2017) — The results are in for ConventionSouth’s list of the “Top Adventure Resorts.” In late February, ConventionSouth Editors compiled a Facebook ballot with a list of 51 resorts that exceed expectations by offering meeting and event attendees fun and exciting activities that add adventure to their meetings experience. From those 51 “Adventure Resorts,” ConventionSouth readers and Facebook fans were asked to vote for their top picks.

A complete list of the 51 resorts nominated by ConventionSouth editors can be found on ConventionSouth’s Facebook page.

“Meeting planners and groups find resorts in the South to be a top choice for their events,” said ConventionSouth’s Senior Editor Marcia Bradford. “Resorts not only provide the complete amenities and service standards needed to host meetings and special group events, but many resorts also take it a step further by offering engaging activities, such as team-building exercises, family-friendly attractions and other thrilling adventures.”

The following list of 15 resorts gained the top votes. The May print and digital issue of ConventionSouth will share this list with meeting planners from across the country that book meeting sites in the South. Resorts appear in alphabetical order.
