Hard as it is for some of us water babies to believe, not everyone heads straight for a beach during the summer. Others prefer to spend their time exploring some of the many hills and mountains outside the city. And of course, we have plenty of stores to get you ready for your camping and hiking trip:

Eastern Mountain Sports – 530 Broadway – 2152 Broadway
If you need gear, apparel, footwear and really good advice, come here for one stop shopping.

REI – 303 Lafayette Street
Another location that can take care of all your needs, with a significant fitness component too. And dedicated to preserving the environment it prepares you to experience!
