Boating & Fun! Great events on the water this fall
With the dog days of summer in our wake, we’re cruising into the glorious fall boating season. Any boater will agree that fall is one of the best times to enjoy the boating lifestyle. The harsh rays and hot days have given way to cooler crisp air and a bloom of autumn colors. A glorious boating time in its own right, fall also offers abundant fishing, less congested waterways, the ultimate leaf peeping, and some of the best boat shows.
We’ve put together a calendar of events that will add fun and adventure to fall boating for you, your family, and your friends.
Newport International Boat Show
September 15 – 18, 2022
One of the largest and most prestigious boat shows in the country is the Newport International Boat Show (NIBS). It’s a sight to see that spans over thirteen acres of historic downtown Newport, Rhode Island. The docks are filled with shiny, awe-inspiring new sailboats and powerboats. Some of these beauties will be making their first-ever debut in the United States. On land, you’ll find loads of marine products, services, and accessories to kick your boating lifestyle up a notch. There are also educational seminars, in-water boating courses, and daily giveaways. And, of course, you can’t beat the beauty of Newport and fall in New England.
