    Stunt Your Team's Growth

Channel your team’s inner action heroes with a little team-building at Stunt Ranch, located just outside of Austin. The 22-acre ranch was founded (and is owned) by Steve Wolf, a film and television producer and president of Wolf Stuntworks, Inc. Your group can challenge each other in zorb ball races (they’re like mega-sized hamster balls for humans), zip lining, hatchet/spear tossing and more. You can even build and detonate a fireball or compete in the “Rescue the Boss” challenge. The ranch also offers space for corporate team-building, bachelor/bachelorette and birthday parties, 5Ks, and private venue rentals.

For more than 300 years, ranching has been a way of life—and business—in Texas. The uniquely Texan ranch experience has captured the imagination of the world, and ranches have served as uncredited “stars” for some of Hollywood’s most iconic productions: from Reata, the fictitious ranch depicted in the classic movie “Giant,” to the glamorous Southfork Ranch, home of the primetime soap opera “Dallas.” Longhorns, horses, cowboys, rodeos, 10-gallon hats and cowboy boots: There is an alluring mystique surrounding Texas ranches.

 

In November, Dallas-based Todd Interests opened Thompson Dallas, part of hospitality brand Thompson Hotels. Thompson Dallas features 219 rooms, including 52 suites, two penthouse suites, and two culinary destinations.

 

After a year filled with uncertainty and countless projects and proposals put on hold, growth in any sector of the hospitality industry is always welcome news. But a statewide slew of brand-new hotels? That’s something to celebrate. Here, we spotlight just a few of the new properties offering planners and guests new spots to meet, refresh and recharge.
