Today is not only the first day of summer and the longest day of the year, but also a great time to check out the first boat shows of the season in places like California, Texas and Michigan. Read on for details...

This weekend's boat shows kick off the summer... and winter

Sunny San Diego
In Southern California this weekend, the San Diego International Boat Show hits Harbor Island with more than 150 boats on display. You'll see everything from Stand Up Paddle Boards to Superyachts. More info at www.sandiegointernationalboatshow.com

Houston, We Have A Boat Show
That joke never gets old. This weekend, the Reliant Center is home to the 2013 Houston Summer Boat Show. In addition to hundreds of vendors displaying everything from boats to fishing gear, you'll find fun for the whole family including swamp people, bubble runners and a 40 ft long aquarium.

Old Boats
The Michigan Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society is holding its 28th annual classic boat show this weekend, but the event has been moved from Algonac to the Municipal Harbor in St. Clair due to water levels.

Winter is Coming
As we welcome the first day of summer here in the States, our friends down under are kicking off their winter season. But that's not going to get in the way of a boat show! This weekend the Adelaide Boat Show is happening at the Adelaide Showground in South Australia.
