Easy Ideas for Group Outings

Planning a meeting in Rogers doesn’t have to be all work and no play. Make sure to add some fun time to the itinerary in between convention sessions or after corporate meetings. These group activities and guided tours make it easy.

Arts & Culture

Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art - Tucked away in a gorgeous natural setting, this museum celebrates American artwork and the beauty of nature in a unique indoor-outdoor setting. Inspire your groups with one of the numerous guided tours, which cover an array of options such as collection highlights, the outdoor art trail or even a tour of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Bachman-Wilson House (which was relocated from New Jersey). Guided tours are available for 10-60 people ($10 per person) with 14-day advanced notice. Tours can include box lunches or seated lunch in Eleven, the museum’s restaurant.

Rogers Historical Museum - Give groups a peek into the fascinating history of the area with a trip to Rogers Historical Museum (free admission), where they can step into the original Rogers jail cell, explore the Victorian-style Hawkins House and view a replica of First Street. For a historic walking tour of local sites—including Rogers Historical Museum—book one of the History Adventure Tours.

Outdoor Adventures

War Eagle Cavern on Beaver Lake - Take groups on a subterranean adventure inside War Eagle Cavern, a cave featuring expansive natural rooms, beautiful rock formations, ancient fossils and even an underground stream. The wide walkways, abundant railings and lack of stairways make this excursion easily accessible for all fitness levels. Discounted rates are available for group tours of 10 or more people.

SUP Outfitters - For a more active outdoor adventure, bring groups to Beaver Lake for a couple hours of stand-up paddle boarding with SUP Outfitters. This easy-to-learn water sport is a great way for visitors to try something new and experience the natural beauty of Rogers while getting a much-needed break from work. Group event and party bookings are available.

Food and Culinary Activities

Hogshead Tours - After a long day of meetings, let your groups unwind while exploring the burgeoning wine and beer scene in and around Rogers with Hogshead Tours. The Wine and Cider Tour includes two wineries and Arkansas’ only cidery, and the Beer Tour includes three breweries. Both tours include round-trip transportation, and they last approximately 3 hours. $75-$80 per person. Custom tours are also available.

Honeycomb Kitchen Shop Classes - Try a fun and hands-on experience for your group with private events and cooking classes offered by Honeycomb Kitchen Shop in downtown Rogers. Reserve a small private event, or take your pick from the events calendar, where you'll find classes like cookie decorating or how to make classic country dishes. Explore even more attractions in Rogers for additional group activities.
