Just book an activity at one of our list’s great team building ideas in Miami, or browse Peerspace to find more great venue options!
1. Experience virtual reality at SVR Entertainment
Take your team to enjoy a virtual reality party at SVR Entertainment, where you can pick from a variety of VR games, including team-based games like the action-packed “Raw Data.” There are educational games, such as a walk-through of ancient Rome, a simulated mission to Mars, and the hilarious “Job Simulator,” which immerses you in exaggerated workplace environments. Book the whole venue for a private event for small- to mid-sized teams in Miami.
2. Host your own event at a Peerspace venue
Sometimes booking a pre-planned outing just isn’t the right fit for your team. If you’re looking for truly customized team building ideas in Miami, book a unique event space on Peerspace. You’ll be able to choose venues ranging from a hi-tech conference center with projection mapping or a rural, secluded retreat in a tropical forest. Then, call up the Concierge service for recommendations on a local caterer or photographer, and hire a workshop facilitator to lead team building activities at your event.
3. Solve the puzzles at Fox in a Box Escape Room
Escape rooms never seem to lose their appeal. Each one is different, so even if you’ve been to one before, all you have to do is choose a different venue for a totally original experience. Fox in a Box has some of the most popular escape rooms in Miami, including an Abandoned Zombie Lab, a Nuclear Bunker, and more. Plus, this venue is designed with team building in mind: you can split your team into smaller groups for a three-hour event suitable for up to 120 people. You’ll have time to relax and debrief between each one-hour escape room session.
4. Take a tour of the Vizcaya Museum & Gardens
The Vizcaya Museum & Gardens is a beautiful villa that was originally built in the 1910s, and it’s now a national historic landmark. Set on 50 acres, this attraction lets visitors take a tour of the main house, the Renaissance-style gardens, native forests, and more. To make the most of the experience, book a themed tour that highlights the on-site art galleries, “smart house” technology, and other thought-provoking aspects of the villa. This is a great starting point for a discussion on ancient and contemporary art that your team can continue at dinner or back at the office.
5. Try some unique blends at Schnebly Winery
The state of Florida isn’t known for its wine, as grapes don’t grow well in tropical climates. But Schnebly Winery hasn’t let that stop them: they produce inventive wines made with tropical fruits, including guava, passion fruit, and even avocado! Take your team for a tour of Schnebly Winery, and enjoy their beautiful tasting room while you sample their latest wines.
This venue has a truly relaxing vibe, with a vibrant courtyard and coral waterfalls. They’re also home to the Miami Brewing Company if your team would rather sample beer than wine. Rent one of their event spaces or book a table at the restaurant for an all-day outing!
6. See a play in a shipping container at Microtheater Miami
The Microtheather is a whole new way of experiencing the theater! Originally started in Madrid, the Miami venue lets you immerse yourself in 15-minute short plays performed in either English or Spanish inside 15-seat shipping containers. Each play is performed several times per night, so come early and catch them all! There’s also a patio with food and drinks on site where you can discuss the performances. This is one of the more relaxed team building ideas in Miami that’s perfect for bilingual teams looking for an unconventional happy-hour experience.
7. Do paddleboard yoga at the Oleta River Outdoor Center
Take the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors with a team building event on the Oleta River. Try a paddleboard yoga class or take a full moon tour by canoe or kayak.

The Redland Tropical Trail is a great way to visit several of Miami’s most popular destinations, including the Schnebly Winery, the Coral Castle Museum, and the Everglades Alligator Farm.

10. Lean to dance (and drink mojitos) with Salsa Mia
Miami is known for its Latin American music and cuisine. Enjoy the best of what Miami’s nightlife has to offer with a customized salsa lesson for you and your team. The team at Salsa Mia will teach you how to make Cuban coffee, mix mojitos, and dance to salsa. Events can take place at Mango’s Tropical Cafe or at your own retreat center or Peerspace rental.
11. Immerse yourself in the interactive art at Artechouse
For an interactive team building idea in Miami, head to the hands-on exhibits at the Artechouse museum, which combines art and technology to create immersive digital art experiences.
