Show Me the Boats!

We have been on a continuing quest for the perfect family boat. Where else are we going to see hundreds of boat models, RVs, and such under one 445,000 square foot roof? We can visit with dealers and other boat owners and ask questions about financing, warranties, and such. It is fun to think about the possibilities. Who knows, maybe there will be a bargain there that we cannot pass up.

There are other rewards for visiting a boat show too. Exhibitors of fishing tackle, accessories, guides, and travel locations will be there.  Maybe you can pick up a tip from a fishing tournament pro seminar. Then there often are additional appearances and highlights. The Tulsa show will have the Smage Brothers performing dirt bike tricks, the Swamp People from the History Channel, and a Family Fun Splash Zone.

How long has it been since you have been to a boat show?  Click here to find the closest one near you.
