Tee off on the “Little Blue Monster?” Skydive without a parachute? Paddle along the scenic Hudson River Valley shoreline? Check, check, and check. Now that spring has sprung, meeting attendees will be revitalized after time spent on the scenic links, riverfront paths, and forest trails throughout beautiful Westchester County.
The opportunity to play a round of golf on a dramatically beautiful course is a big draw for meeting attendees.
One of America’s premier public golf courses, the Peter Dye-designed Pound Ridge Golf Club is an American classic on the bucket list of many serious golfers. Designed by the creator of Miami’s famous Blue Monster course, the “Little Blue Monster” at the Doral Golf Club is a nine-hole, par 35, challenging course.
In addition, Westchester has six superb 18-hole county-run courses. Info on these can be found at golf.westchestergov.com: Dunwoodie Golf Course with its dramatic topography and steep slopes; picturesque Hudson Hills Golf Course, known for its grand vistas; named for its many maple trees, historic Maple Moor Golf Course; recently renovated Mohansic Golf Course; Saxon Woods Golf Course with its rolling, wooded landscape; and the long and narrow Sprain Lake Golf Course.

A relaxing day on the Hudson River gliding past rocky and forested shores, picture-perfect homes, marshes, and marinas awaits your group if they opt for a kayak or a charter boat excursion. Atlantic Kayak Tours has two dozen kayaks. Groups of up to 30 will leave their cares behind on a private tour of the Hudson Highlands aboard the Evening Star. From the canopy-covered open deck, see the majesty of the area on a day cruise or set sail at sunset to experience the breathtaking colors as the sun sinks behind the mountains.
Put your group in the hands of the experienced route setters at The Cliffs and they’ll leave more confident and bonded from the physical and intellectual challenges tackled together. A rock climbing wall is one feature at LIFE, the Place to Be an entertainment center with 29,000 square feet of flexible event space. Your group of up to 500 will have a blast competing in laser tag, bowling, and high-end arcade games.
Visitors never want to leave the majestic setting of Westchester Trail Rides with its rolling hills, meandering streams, and sweeping Hudson River Valley views.
The Westchester RiverWalk links paths and trails, boardwalks and esplanades to create a walkway along the entire 51 miles of Westchester’s Hudson River shoreline. Hikers will want to explore the 4,300-acre Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, meandering through open meadows and rustic woodlands.
Who wouldn’t be pumped to spend the day at a waterfront amusement park with thrill rides, mini-golf, arcade, pool, beach, boardwalk, pedal boats, and even an indoor ice rink? Playland is where Tom Hanks’ character in “Big” finally found the arcade game that changed him back into a kid. The only Art Deco amusement park in America, this 1927 gem is on the National Register of Historic Places.
