The best way to warm-up this winter? At the Baltimore Boat Show! The annual event returns to the Baltimore Convention Center January 23-26, 2020.

Best part? It’s definitely kid-friendly — and the perfect way to get a taste of summer and beat the winter blahs. Here are a few don’t miss kid-spots:

Baltimore Boat Show

Virtual Fishing Simulator | Feel the strike! Watch the rod bend! Experience the pull as your fish runs for the bottom! This interactive fishing simulator is as “reel” as it gets without getting your line wet. Will you land your trophy fish? Or just tell the tale of how it got away? Stand shoulder-to-shoulder and enjoy a friendly competition with your fishing partner to see who can land the big one.
