Every year the Motor Trend International Auto Show comes to Baltimore, Maryland and it keeps getting better and better. The Baltimore Auto Show visited the Baltimore Convention Center, located at One West Pratt Street at the Inner Harbor, from February 6th-9th this year. Whether you are currently in the market for purchasing a new ride, a certified car enthusiast, or a looking for a fun family activity to do on a chilly day, you'll find it all under one roof. At the Motor Trend International Auto Show Baltimore, they feature the latest cars, trucks, crossovers, SUVs, hybrids, exotics, classics, and more. From rugged Jeeps to a luxurious Bentley, I didn't know which way to turn.
It's easily laid out. Just follow the road and you'll be taken past a variety of cars gleaming under the bright, sparkling lights. Plus, each brand has knowledgeable industry salespeople to answer your questions. As you stroll throughout the space, when you see a beauty that peaks your interest, you can grab a glossy brochure (and a complimentary tote!) to take home and read through at your leisure. Many of the cars on the floor at the Motor Trend International Auto Show Baltimore are from local dealerships that were presented by Maryland Automobile Dealers Association. Since you can't test drive each and every car on the floor, you can visit the dealership after the show and take it for a spin.
What I love is there is something for everyone. If just admiring the cars from the outside isn't your thing, sign up to take a test drive in one of many of new vehicles. Even toddlers can test drive mini electric cars on the Citgo Kids Test Track inside the building. The day we were visiting, the kids were having a blast!
What I enjoy most about visiting auto shows is it's the perfect "non-selling" environment to admire and learn about the cars. No pressure to buy, just have a great time. I'm a travel blogger and whether I'm traveling locally in my area or renting a car in a new destination, I love a shiny, new car that is spacious enough for my family, luxurious and comfortable seats, and has all the bells and whistles from safety features to LED headlights to the latest black rims. And YES, I saw all of that.
I can dream up possibilities for each kind of car out there. A cool Jeep Rubicon is a must for those off-road travel experiences.
The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT 500 is ALWAYS a favorite.
A vivacious red Acura NSX? Yes, please!
The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette is what my husband is still dreaming of in our garage.
It's not just the lights, but the color of this red Lexus LC 500 is gorgeous.
A Lotus is always a highlight for me...just look at this color!

Thanks for cruising by! Along with creating this website and blog, I work in an office full-time and as a mom to two energetic teenage boys. With our family's busy work and school schedule, we look forward to traveling during holidays. Although it seems that our family can never agree on anything, we do when it comes to vacations. We typically travel on cruises or stay at luxury hotels. We enjoy upscale dining, beautiful decor, excellent service, and spacious accommodations. However, with a family including two teenage boys, we still need family friendly and comfortable.

Time flies! The winter holidays are almost here.
We are still working on our holiday travel plans and throughout the chilly winter months.
As we are anxiously awaiting next winter's cruise to the ABC islands on Celebrity Cruises, we'd love to get another cruise on the books.
