Last week I told you about the Austin Home and Garden Show. This week (just in time for the better weather after our week of winter) it’s time to explore a little fun for the outdoors. The Austin Boat, Sport and Outdoor show comes to the Austin Convention Center this Thursday, January 20th through Sunday, January 23rd. This is the fist year for this event, as it combines the Annual Austin Boat Show with the Annual Central Texas Hunting and Fishing shows.
Austin Boat, Sport and Outdoor Show – Why Go?
Although it’s still a little cold outside, why wait to plan for the sun and fun of summertime in Austin. If your looking to take your Lake Travis or Lake Austin lifestyle up a notch, the Austin Boat, Sport and Outdoor Show will definitely help you get there or at least make your daydreams a little more vivid.
Looking for a New Boat?
Need a new ski or wakeboarding boat for Lake Travis or just something to cruise to the Hula Hut on Lake Austin? The Boat Show will have on display the newest and greatest boats for any activity.
Want to Hone Your Fishing Skills?
Is fishing more your style? There will be free fishing seminars ranging from learning to fly fish to creating your own custom fishing rod.
