Finding stylish and comfortable clothes to wear for your favorite outdoor activities during summer's warmest days will be a little bit easier this year, thanks to the addition of The Outside World Outfitters in Uptown Columbus.
The shop has a great selection of summer-friendly clothes and accessories. High-end outfitter gear ranges from boats to sunglasses, shoes, hats, clothes and camping supplies. Brands such as Prana, Patagonia and Columbia are sold at the store on Broadway.
Whether your hiking in Pine Mountain, biking The Fall Line Trace, running on The RiverWalk, practicing yoga in a shady park or getting wet in The Chattahoochee River, you'll be prepared in these stylish and practical clothes. The store has recently been renovated into a two-story adventure fun land for folks who like to "play" outdoors. After getting suited up in quality clothes and shoes, you'll be ready to raft, run, bike or whatever else that brings out outside!
