Best Team-Building Activities: Mild & Wild
The Heldrich’s fun team-building exercises that fuel a little friendly competition, while also firing up the friendships.
Historic Walking Tours
Why are there Japanese monuments in the Willow Grove Cemetery? What secret underground location did flappers flock to during the 1920’s Prohibition Era to drink their bathtub gin? Your group will find the answers to these questions and more during a two-hour guided stroll with New Brunswick Walking Tour, which covers four centuries of quirky historical happenings.
Tubing the Delaware River
Bucks County is home to a beautiful stretch of the Delaware that has been a tubing hotspot for almost 50 years, thanks to its refreshing 80-degree temps all summer long, currents that run an average speed of one-and-a-half miles per hour, and a water depth of one to five feet. Book a two- to four-hour tubing experience with outfitter River County (located an hour west of New Brunswick) to float down this famed stretch of river packed with wildlife and surrounding cliffs and rock formations.
Cheer on the Local Team
If you boast a group of ball fans, set up an outing to see the local home team: the Somerset Patriots, a Minor League team that makes its home in the neighboring town of Bridgewater at the TD Bank Ballpark. This 6,100-seat stadium offers special group packages, including an all-you-can-eat barbeque buffet, access to a “party deck,” as well as suite rentals for exclusive wait service.
Based in nearby Edison, TopGolf is kind of like a driving range blended with a nightclub. Featuring a lively bar-like atmosphere with live music and a full menu, the complex centers around a 215-yard outfield, where players – swinging from hitting bays – aim for dartboard-like targets with microchipped golf balls that provided players with the shot’s accuracy and distance. The best part? Anyone in your group – from the hopeful pro to those who have never so much as lifted a club – can play.
