Finally, this is the time of year when many of us and our friends have a few well-deserved extra days off work and school. It can be difficult to coordinate with friends around the holidays with family obligations and office parties in the mix, but true friends are always worth the effort.
If you’re tired of meeting up at the same old bar every time you get together, why not mix things up a bit? Here are some unique group activities to suggest to your adventurous crew to break up the monotony and try something different together!
Make your brain work for those tempting cocktails as you enjoy happy hour at San Francisco’s Exploratorium. There are hundreds of interactive machines here to spark your group’s imagination, and it’s just a 15-minute walk from Fisherman’s Wharf. Stop by on Thursdays between 6 pm and 10 pm for this adults-only peek into science, art, and curiosity. Each has a different them, so it’s worth coordinating even if you’ve been here before.
What better way to spend a day off in New York City than listening to amazing jazz music with your friends? Stop by any Tuesday at 11:30 am to get into this 90-minute show that will inspire your group’s musical side. There’s a different artist featured every week, and performances are split into two sets: one starting at noon and the next at 1:45 pm.
This is the sort of comedy show you might not want to bring your parents or a first date to. However, it’s perfect for a fun night out with your best friends! The X Comedy show takes place in Bugsy’s Showroom at the Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, which also features exciting adults-only shows like “X Rocks” and “X Burlesque.” Nancy Ryan and John Bizarre are your comedian hosts for the night’s show featuring magic tricks, celebrity impersonations, and hilarious raunchy jokes.
Put your wits and city savvy to the test on a scavenger hunt adventure with your best buds. The Los Angeles scavenger hunt begins on Olvera Street on a course from Union Station to the Bunker Hill area. You’ll walk, run, use the metro system, and consult your smartphones to decipher clues and compete against another team or just have fun. We offer scavenger hunts in lots of other cities too, including San Diego, Atlanta, Portland, Chicago, New York, and Dallas!
Some parts of the country are way too cold right now to consider hopping on a scooter to see the sights, but not Miami! If you live in the area or are visiting Southern Florida for a little wintertime fun in the sun with your friends, book scooter rentals for your group to experience the city in style. Scooters are economical, eco-friendly, and save you the hassles and headaches of parking. The rental shop will teach your group the basics of scooter operation and the rest of the day of exploration is up to you!
