Take them to the sub-tropical climate of South Texas where the landscape is a welcoming haven for groups, especially during the meetings-rich shoulder sea- sons. Cities such as Laredo, McAllen and South Padre Island allow groups to explore the outdoors. Among the recreational options throughout South Texas, kayaking the Rio Grande and surrounding lakes allows groups to experience the one-of-a-kind eco-system of the area. Three small lakes, miles of shady trails and 200 acres of park land lay at the geographic center of Laredo and Nuevo Laredo. Enjoy a teambuilding kayak race at Laredoʼs Riverbend Park (pictured above). While exploring the outdoors, watch out for the hundreds of local and migratory birds that can been spotted throughout South Texas such as brightly colored Green Parakeets. ■ I N S I D E R ' S G U I D E By D.
