Around Town: United Outside by REI for 100 Days

Appalachian TrailHiking the Appalachian Trail

October is coming! In October, the flagship REI store in NoMa opens. The Grand Opening Block Party will be held from October 21-23.

Once you’ve returned from putting those dates on your calendar, let’s look at what you can do in the meantime.

Get excited, because REI, partnering with many local businesses, will be conducting 100 days of activities, which they call United Outside.

From REI Wrench Nights at breweries where you can work on your bike, to bike tours, to campfires at Wunder Garten making s’mores, to classes on any range of outdoor activity, to coordinated efforts to see movies in NoMa, and much more, there is almost anything you can dream of.

Find the full list of events here.
