We walked into Appalachian Outdoors Adventures "just looking" and walked out a couple of hundred dollars later. They had great quality at reasonable prices. The sales clerk was very helpful and friendly. We are hikers who appreciate good quality.

Might as well call AOA the visitors welcome center!! The ONLY reason no five stars is because they don't have kid things. But they have everything else!!! Linda was honest, patient, and super savvy. We are here for a week and will be back!
