Boat Shows from Coast to Coast

Now that the v.p. debate is over, what are your plans for the weekend?

If you like boat shows, there's plenty of them across the US, and likely close enough to attend on a whim. The fall boat show season has begun.

In my neck of the woods, there's the 10th Annual Boston International In-Water Boat Show, where the weather will be crisp at the Seaport World Trade Center. Save $2 when you buy tickets online. The show runs through October 5th - hours and more information can be found here. (Don't worry - if you miss this show, there's another boat show in Boston in January - here.)

Other boat shows around the country include:

40th Annual International Sail and Power Boat Show in Long Beach, through October 5th at Long Beach Convention Center and Shoreline Village Marina. Show website.

22nd Annual Indianapolis Fall Boat & RV Show through October 5th at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. Save $2 with this printable coupon. Visit the show website for more info - here.

If you're in Florida, where every day is a boat show, you can visit the 22nd Daytona Beach Boat Show from October 3 - 5 at the NEW Ocean Center, located at 101 North Atlantic Avenue in Daytona Beach, FL.

The South West International Boat Show, which was supposed to be at the Kemah Boardwalk Marina in Houston, has been CANCELLED due to damage from Hurricane Ike.

Lastly, if you're in the Pacific Northwest, visit the Anacortes Fall Boat Show, Oct 3 - 5 at Cap Sante Marina in Anacortes, Washington.
