Discover San Francisco's Best Nearby Outdoor Group Retreats

Group retreats can help foster strong connections between individuals who work closely together. If you’re planning on organizing an outdoor group retreat for your team, you need to choose a space that will be able to cater to your needs without sacrificing accessibility. To help you with planning, from finding a private San Francisco bus rental to choosing your destination, here is your guide to the best outdoor group retreats near the city:

Choosing a Bus

When you’re traveling in a group, how do you choose the best transportation option? Well, you need to ask yourself three questions before you make a decision:
  • Are you planning on spending three or more hours straight on the road?
  • Do you need WiFi connection, extra space for luggage, or AV equipment?
  • How many people are in your group?

If you answered no in the first two questions, you can rent a mini bus (21 pax) or a school bus (47 pax) for your trip. Otherwise, it is advisable to rent a mini coach bus (32 pax) or a coach bus (55 pax) so you can have the amenities that you need. Once you’ve chosen the appropriate transportation, you can go ahead and ask for a quote for your corporate event or group retreat.

Picking a location

Now, let’s talk about the location. Where are the best outdoor group retreats near San Francisco? Here are five great places for you to choose from:
