Spring is here, and it's time to stock up on all the gear you need for outdoor fun and exercise.
Patch wanted to help readers decide which stores are the best place to pick up all your needed sports equipment. We asked readers throughout the state which shop in their town is their favorite. After five days of voting, the winners are in. Check out which stores readers think are the best of the best and support your favorite in the comments section below. And after shopping 'til you drop, upload a photo of you enjoying the outdoors with your new gear.
