Sometimes the best team building happens outside the office. Check out our list of office outings that are sure to give your team something to reminisce on at the water cooler.

Ax-Caliber, 204 E. Orange St., Ste. 102, Lakeland
Head to this axe-throwing venue and virtual range with groups ranging in size from 20-200. Bonus: This downtown venue also has a restaurant with menus for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Skate World, 911 N. Lake Parker Ave., Lakeland
Book a corporate party to make your team members feel like kids again. Not into skating? Rent out the venue for a two-hour private Nerf party for up to 30 players — you can even bring your own outside food.
