The 2020 Abraham Lincoln SSBN 602 reunion details are taking shape. We have secured a great room rate at the Hilton Garden Inn – Southpark for our Homeport. The hotel’s location provides walking access to numerous bars and restaurants as well as a high-end shopping mall. Light rail is available a short drive away that will take you uptown to other entertainment venues (e.g. NASCAR Hall of Fame, Levine Museum of the New South, Mint Museum Uptown, Discovery Place, etc.). Some other attractions a short drive away include the Billy Graham Library, the National Whitewater Center, Reed’s Gold Mine and many others.

Our room rate for the entire reunion is $109 per night for a king or $119 for two queens and is guaranteed for any early arrivals or extended stays. This rate includes breakfast and free parking!!!
