    Looking to host an event with spectacular views? Consider Top of the Tower.

Top of the Tower, located on the 50th and 51st floor of 1717 Arch Street, is an exceptional venue boasting breathtaking panoramas of Philadelphia. Appropriately named, the Vista Room offers unobstructed views of the city on all three sides and is the venue’s most famous space. The Vista room is 3,000 square feet and can host up to 250 people.

The views are the most sought-out piece of this venue, making Top of the Tower an event space like no other. All tables are oriented so guests can constantly take in the breathtaking Philadelphia skyline. Co-proprietor J. Mickey Rowley says, “There’s really nothing like it.”

Not only does Top of the Tower boast amazing views, but its cuisine is highly rated as well. Guests can choose between buffet stations from all over the world or a plated dinner. One of Top of the Tower’s most famous dishes is the firocce, a pasta stuffed with pear in a three cream sauce with wild mushroom.

Houston’s new attraction, Seismique, is a feast for the senses. The 40,000-square-foot art-fueled experiential museum on Houston’s west side is built to capture the imagination of audiences with more than 40 unique exhibits showcasing dazzling displays of light (generated by 9 million LEDs), color, sound and natural elements.

 

Michigan is home to nearly 150 wineries, many with private events spaces set against backdrops of picturesque vineyards and wide-open rural countryside scenes. While weddings are among the primary celebrations hosted, many also offer venues ideal for business and corporate receptions or events.

 

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.
