  REI - Seattle Flagship Store
by Sunshine64

REI is one of the greatest outdoor sports stores ever, and this, the flagship store, it truly amazing. They have everything thing you could ever want for hiking, camping, paddling, climbing, biking, skiing.... you name it. They have a good travel section, too, with luggage and accessories. There's also a book section, with guides, adventure tales, and all kinds of maps.

One of the big draws of this store is that they have a climbing wall. Never done it myself, but there's usually a line on Saturday mornings waiting to get in.

Address: 222 Yale Ave N.
Directions: The store is inbetween Capitol Hill and Belltown. Near the area that being re-named South Lake Union. It's about a mile and 1/4 from Seattle Center.
