Everything’s Bigger In Texas At The 2018 DFW Auto Show
It’s no mystery that I enjoy traveling and I could spend far too long giving you a list of places that I hope to visit in 2018, however, what you might not know is that I love cars! Looking back, my passion for vehicles might have been sparked by my love for road trips. I get excited about hitting the open road and I always refer to our car as our “mini-home” because we spend a lot of time inside our vehicles. I’m thrilled to be visiting the DFW Auto Show this year.
Why Visit An Auto Show?
After my visit to the DFW Auto Show last year, I wrote about why moms should be visiting car shows. Purchasing a vehicle is a huge decision. I loved that during the auto show I was able to compare vehicles, ask questions, and gather all the information that I needed to help find what car fits my needs and taste.
Silly boys cars are for girls too! Did you know that women buy 54% of the cars in the United States, and influence 84% of all vehicle purchase decisions? I spend a lot of time behind the wheel and I like the chance to interact with my favorite car manufacturers.
What You Need To Know
The 2018 DFW Auto Show returns on February 14-18, 2018 to the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center. The show is open 10AM -10PM Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and from 10AM until 7PM on Sunday.
