City By The Sea

newportboatshow16pressIt’s that time of year again in the Sailing Capital of the World – Newport, Rhode Island. While the New England city has also been known by such nick names as “City by the Sea”, “Queen of Summer Resorts”, and “America’s Society Capital” (according to Wikipedia, of course), this weekend it is all about the boats.

There is a lot to see at the annual Newport International Boat Show this weekend. Expected to draw tens of thousands of visitors, the 46th annual edition of the show takes place Thursday, September 15th through Sunday, September 18th, 2016 on the Newport waterfront along America’s Cup Avenue in Newport, Rhode Island. One of the largest in-water boat shows in the country, the event will host nearly 750 exhibitors from around the world with an exceptional assortment of boats of every type and style from 15 to 110 feet.
