Why might the metro area have some of the worst traffic in the nation? For those at the Washington Auto Show it’s clear the reason is that — even in one of the country’s most walkable cities — Washingtonian’s can’t get enough of their cars!
From now until February 10th, the Walter E. Washington Convention Center is the place to feast on your car fix. Whether its sitting behind the wheel of your dream ride or looking under the hood of that new hybrid you’ve heard so much about, the Washington Auto Show has all the engines you’d expect, including the perfect ones to purr into your driveway tomorrow.
This year’s new attraction is a Luxury Showcase area featuring high end brands like Jaguar and Mercedes-Benz, where the concept cars turned gracefully under hot lights and everyone angled to get a coveted spot behind the steering wheel.
And while no auto show would be complete without the celebrity visits, its no surprise that the real stars are the vehicles themselves. A special signature section — behind a velvet rope — had the flash bulbs popping for the classic cars.
No evening gowns or elegance poses required for this red carpet ride, but you will need tickets. We suggest going during the week to kick the tires yet bypass the crowds!
