Interested in hosting your next corporate retreat in this little state with big offerings? Check out these five stunning locations.
SMOOTH SAILING CELEBRATIONS. While not a single location per se, no list would be complete that didn’t focus on New Jersey’s exquisite coastline. Smooth Sailing Celebrations boasts a fleet of 45 luxury yachts that accommodate corporate events with up to 1,200 guests. Each is equipped with state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment for your presentations. Specialty catering, such as Kosher and Indian, are available.
THE GROUNDS FOR SCULPTURE. Tucked away in the highly populated area of Central New Jersey, the Grounds for Sculpture is an urban oasis unlike any other. The splendid gardens marry over 270 sculptures by famous and rising artists into a landscaping masterpiece. With intimate, idyllic venues to grand plazas, the Grounds offer surprisingly competitive rates for corporate events.
THE ADVENTURE AQUARIUM AT CAMDEN’S WATERFRONT. A fixture on the redeveloped waterfront of Camden, the Adventure Aquarium is a spectacular venue for any event. Even if swimming with the sharks is not on your retreat’s agenda, the exquisite Ballroom Under the Seas is certain to make your event the talk of the town. Moments from Philadelphia, this venue carries your guests a world away.
THE SMITHVILLE MANSION. History buffs will not be able to resist the lure of the lesser known Smithville Mansion. This estate, nestled in the quiet Pine Barrens of southern New Jersey, is home to the 18th-century mansion and associated buildings of American Industrialist Hezekiah Smith. The vast grounds offer abundant choices for outdoor events, and indoor events will enjoy the authentic and restored 18th-century elegance. A historic bowling alley and peacocks wandering the grounds are just a few of its surprises.
THE RUTGERS GARDENS. If the season is on your side, consider the Rutgers Gardens. Laced throughout the university’s campus, these luscious and unexpected urban oases are the ideal spot for a more rustic, earthy retreat experience. Structures are available for indoor events, including a log cabin and the dramatic alumni pavilion. Reasonably priced, the proceeds of rental also help support the university’s mission of education and the upkeep of the gardens for everyone’s enjoyment.
