Fodor's Review

South Congress gets more attention from travel writers, but stores like this huge, sun-filled and fun-filled outdoor/travel outfitters are why Austinites prize North Lamar as a shopping destination. The local branch of a Texas chain, it carries a lot of the same things you'd find at any REI—backpacks, tents, sleeping bags, running shoes, rugged clothing—but it's much more diverting: jazz is on the speakers; the front space is filled with kids' toys (and a few for adults); and there's a good variety of books for all ages. The staff is laid-back, but friendly and ever-willing to help. There are branches on the UT campus (2410 San Antonio St.) and at the Westgate Mall (4477 South Lamar) in South Austin.
