Taking your hardworking team to a corporate outing is one of the best things you can do. Team-building activities and adventures promote bonding, encourage skill-building, and decrease stress. It shouldn’t be all work and no play.
Have you ever tried corporate outings in NYC? If not, you’re missing out. This city is not just for sightseeing, but it’s also packed with amazing team-building activities, too. Think outdoor fun, indoor sports, amusement parks, boardwalks, and more.
At Beyond Times Square, we’ll make sure you get to experience the Big Apple like a local. Consider us your business’s introduction to New York City. Your employees will have an experience they will never forget. Here are five of our favorite corporate outings in NYC…
Seasonal and outdoor activities
Have you ever considered ice skating at Rockefeller Center? Experience the magic at the ice rink near Times Square that’s been delighting folks for generations. Don’t worry, we’ll keep you nice and toasty with hot cocoa and cookies in the “igloo” before you show off your ice moves.
If ice isn’t your company’s thing, try exploring New York on a private jet ski tour. Your team will get to see famous sights like the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Battery Park, the Brooklyn Bridge, and Governors Island.
We also offer an adventure ride in New York Harbor. You’ll sit on a 24-foot Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat, built for the US Navy, and learn about important landmarks while enjoying the water. Sights include the Aviation Pier, FDNY Fireboat Station, South Street Seaport, and the Intrepid Aircraft Carrier.
Extreme indoor sports and professional sporting events
You might be looking for something even more daring and exciting for your corporate outing. We get it! We can plan indoor sporting activities like paintball, laser tag, escape rooms, archery tag, and more. These sports take teamwork, organization, and creativity to succeed. They’re the perfect option for any team-building activity in New York City.
How about NYC sporting events? Grab your favorite jersey and get tickets to the NFL, NBA, MLB, U.S. Open, and NHL games. Have fun with your colleagues at Yankee Stadium, MetLife Stadium, Madison Square Garden, Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, Citi Field, or the Barclays Center. Every week there’s so much to choose from.
Beer/wine tasting or food tours
