Keels & Wheels Concours D'Elegance

Map
24254 NASA Pkwy., Lakewood Yacht Club, Seabrook, TX , United States

The Vibe: This is not the place for bikini-clad car models. The genteel annual showcase (it may be in Texas, but it’s still a yacht club) attracts 200 classic and exotic cars as well as 60 vintage wooden boats. This year’s gem: the 1920s Pierce-Arrow used in the movie Smokey and the Bandit and owned by the movie’s star, Burt Reynolds.

The Crowd: Older car-enthusiasts and their grandchildren (children under 10 get in free) dominate the scene. While some chaperones may have driven the 1920s specimens, the kids will enjoy the public unveiling of the WaterCar. The amphibious vehicle reaches speeds of 125 mph on land and 45 on water.

Time-Travel Tip: Stroll the nearby Kemah boardwalk—just across the lake—for amusement rides, arcade games, restaurants, and shopping, or stick around to bid on one of the cars during the auto auction.
