From the moment you walk up to REI, you will realize this isn’t your ordinary shopping experience. The entrance from the street transitions from Seattle street to an outdoor habitat. The fireplace in the middle of the store has pillows to sit on as you...More

This REI is very nice. It has an excellent climbing wall. It has a lot of items but it could have more backpacker options. It is a definite spot to visit when going to Seattle.

This flagship store has everyhting for the outdoors activities, including a climbing mountain. Good for shopping (not the cheapest) and for inspiration.

From pictures, I thought this was somewhere in the hills but it's actually in the city. There's large Victornix watches hanging from the beams with the time at Mt Rainer and Mt Everest, to name a few. There's a path to trial bikes and an...More
