In one corner of the ring, land pounds its gloves. In the other corner, water readjusts its mouthpiece. Despite sharing the same planet and combining to offer limitless recreational activities, land and water are often forced into opposition by their passionate hordes of supporters. Rather than chiming the fight bell, though, the staff at Rodeo Beach oversees a friendly handshake or awkward hug between all kinds of outdoor thrill-seekers, all in the name of adventure. Major brands, including Patagonia, Hurley, and The North Face, set up camp across Rodeo Beach's shelves, and outdoor gear for men, women, and children readies outdoorsfolk of all sizes for exploration. To further prepare for the outdoors, customers can accessorize with Rodeo Beach's line of sunglasses, travel packs, and waterproof watches.
Party Stop and Gift Shop’s owners stock their shelves with traditional party-store supplies as well as gifts for many occasions. The team purveys Mylar and latex balloons arranged in bouquets, which can decorate rooms with festive pops of color and create enough static electricity to power a party for days. They also sell gift bags stashed with jewelry and hair bows. Monogrammed gifts and baby clothes make a thoughtful surprise and help forgetful babies remember their real names, not their recording-artist pseudonyms. Party Stop and Gift Shop also supplies ribbons to decorate the gifts once they are bought and wrapped. Visitors can enjoy milk shakes while they explore the shop’s inventory, unlike at big-box stores, whose so-called “hot deals” spoil any milk shakes and whimsy within a 10-mile radius.
