Plan a refreshing conference to reinvigorate your participants that’ll leave a positive and lasting impression. The Tri-Cities is the perfect location for your next event as it offers more than 300 days of sunshine to help incorporate elements of health and wellness into your itinerary. Make caring for the mind and body the focus with these unique team building experiences.

Get On Board

A Paddleboard, that is. Find your balance with stand-up paddleboard yoga. This type of activity is perfect for groups or individuals who would like to find their center in the morning before diving into the day. Visitors can rent their own boards for the afternoon and make their way up and down the Columbia River. Paddleboarding is a full-body workout that rejuvenates the mind – plus it is easy to learn, making it the perfect leisure group activity.

Yak it Up

Grab a friend and an oar and glide into relaxed conversation as you venture out along the rivers in a rented kayak. Rent a tandem or single kayak and open yourself up to an exciting evening of cutting through waves. This low impact activity helps improve strength and flexibility while increasing your heart health as you enjoy the riverbanks and watch nature pass by. Consider the rivers as highways to adventures and with a kayak, you’re behind the wheel.

Take a Hike

Adventuring out in nature is a necessity of the human spirit and the Tri-Cities has plenty of ground to cover. Pick one of the trails up Badger Mountain, where spectacular views of the Tri-Cities, Columbia, Yakima and Snake river valleys can be experienced. Or head over to one of the natural preserves, such as Chamna Natural Preserve or the McNary National Wildlife Refuge, surrounded by wetlands and migratory waterfowl. Find your inner calm amongst the wildlife and swaying reed beds, then head back into town for a reward, since you’ve earned it.

Breaking Bread

Discover more about each other over small plates as you explore the local ethnic cuisines and expand your palate. There’s no better time to replenish one’s mind and stomach than after a long day of meetings, workshops and sessions. Try new flavors at a local taco truck or treat yourself to some fabulous cocktails made from local distilleries. Head on over to one of the 200+ local wineries in town and get personal tours of their facilities. Bond over impromptu escapades as you fill up on new group memories.

St. Charles outgrew “charming” years ago. Today, “it’s a lively urban oasis where old meets new,” says Alyssa Feulner of the city’s historic landmarks, new buildings, lovely riverwalk and eclectic dining, shopping and entertainment scene.

Even better are the many ways visitors can experience the city like a local, adds Feulner, who heads up marketing for the St. Charles Business Alliance, which is helping planners tap into the town’s unique vibe.

 

You know the old saying: It’s all about location, location, location. This gorgeous Petoskey region, collectively called Boyne Country after its premier resort facilities, is perfectly situated to make a great northern Michigan location for gatherings. It also offers guaranteed fun postconference activities, paired with great meeting facilities, small and large.

 

Texas’s Big Bend Country is a beautifully orchestrated mix of extremes—from mountains to plains and deserts to forests. Named for the curve the Rio Grande River makes as it traces the border of Texas and Mexico, it’s home to Big Bend National Park, an 880,000-acre wilderness playground that is ripe for engaging outdoor activities and team-building exercises. When traveling to the region for a retreat or conference, here are some spots to stay.
