Corporate groups in North America don't have to travel to Dubai to explore deserts, Scandinavian countries to view breathtaking glaciers, or the Caribbean for pristine beaches. U.S. National Parks are some of the best-kept secrets for awe inspiring outdoor adventures.
Beaches at Biscayne National Park
Not too far from downtown Miami a picturesque wonderland of emerald islands, secluded beaches, mangrove forests, and one of the most extensive coral reefs networks awaits. In this area where 4 distinct ecosystems converge, groups will be able to view brightly colored fish, pelicans, manatees, turtles, and plants which don't grow anywhere else in the USA. It's an area where groups can enjoy snorkeling and even lobstering.
Places to stay include the Ritz-Carlton Biscayne and Silver Sands Beach Resort.
Please note boating and paddle boating have been temporarily suspended to protect the coral reefs.
Desert at Death Valley National Park
Death Valley National Park in California is a thriving ecosystem with rare plant and animal species. It offers the contrast of desert dunes and towering snow capped peaks in the winter.
