Let's get outdoors in New England!

Hi Jenn - Welcome to the community! 

I am over in northern Vermont, so share your excitement about the warm weather and an amazing summer ahead (though am also sad to see winter skiing go)! What are your favorite ways to spend time outside? Knowing which activities you enjoy doing — or want to learn how to do! — can be a good guide for finding ways to meet new people to explore with.

One suggestion we have heard from many people here in the community is that REI classes and events are often attended by individuals looking to meet other people interested in the same things they are. There are many options available in the Boston area this summer across a wide range of activities, so that may be fun to look into!

You may find some good suggestions on our Boston area board as well, where other locals often post questions and suggestions for things to do in the area. If you have a bike, community group rides are also a fun way to meet new people. It looks like there are lots of Boston-Area options available for all types of riders.

Thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself. We're happy you're here and look forward to hearing your stories and helping with any questions you have going forward!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
