Explore activities

Dallas, the third-largest city in Texas, is a region of prairies, tree-lined creeks and gentle hills. The climate is dominated by long hot summers with short, wintery spells providing the only respite.

Since the construction of the first cabin by John Neely Bryan in 1841, Dallas has steadily evolved into a thriving metropolis, now home to an ethnically-diverse community of European, African and Hispanic residents. The city is the leading banking, financial, and trade centre for the Southwest with the concentration of highrise buildings—home to some 6,000 corporate headquarters—forming a dramatic skyline.

As a buzzing corporate hub, Dallas is the perfect location to host an action-packed team-building retreat. With so many experiences on offer such as axe throwing, glassblowing and segway tours, your team are guaranteed to form stronger relationships, create great memories and learn new skills in this buzzing city.
