    Stunt Your Team's Growth

Channel your team’s inner action heroes with a little team-building at Stunt Ranch, located just outside of Austin. The 22-acre ranch was founded (and is owned) by Steve Wolf, a film and television producer and president of Wolf Stuntworks, Inc. Your group can challenge each other in zorb ball races (they’re like mega-sized hamster balls for humans), zip lining, hatchet/spear tossing and more. You can even build and detonate a fireball or compete in the “Rescue the Boss” challenge. The ranch also offers space for corporate team-building, bachelor/bachelorette and birthday parties, 5Ks, and private venue rentals.

The historic Austin hotel, The Driskill, has appointed Nori Meisner to its staff as historic tour guide and special events concierge. In her new role, Meisner will bring to life the stories of the hotel, which was built by cattle baron Colonel Jesse Driskill in 1886. Among the many memories she’ll share with guests on the history tour is the first date between former President Lyndon B. Johnson and his wife, Lady Bird. The two met over breakfast on that fateful day.

 

When it comes to meeting at the Austin Convention Center, the numbers are forever in your favor. Let’s start with six. That’s how many full city blocks the convention center extends in the heart of the downtown business district. Or 12,000—the number of hotel rooms within a two-mile radius of the venue. Twenty-thousand is how many wireless devices that can be simultaneously connected, ensuring all of your guests won’t miss a meeting, Zoom call, presentation or email.  

 

 

Keep your eye on the skyline of Austin. The sustainably focused hotel brand, 1 Hotels, is coming to a mixed-use hotel, residential and retail project currently under construction at the meeting of Waller Creek and Lady Bird Lake. The property will be the tallest tower in Texas and will overlook the historic Rainey Street district.
