Chicago Auto Show
The love affair between man and car is renewed each February at the nation's oldest and largest automobile show. Collectors and admirers will marvel at the more than 1,000 vehicles on display, which include domestic and imported passenger cars and trucks, sport utility vehicles, experimental and concept vehicles and antique and collector cars. A highlight of the exhibit is the announcement of the winners of Motor Week's "Annual Drivers' Choice Awards". Admission: USD10 (adults), USD5 (ages 62 and older and ages 7-12).
If you want to attend the annual, wildly popular Chicago Auto Show and aren't already staying at the venue's hotel (McCormick Place), I urge you to take the "L" train to and from the event. Driving/bus/cab will take forever, because out-of-towners looooove this event! Once inside, you'll wander slack-jawed for hours, just filling your goodie bags with free stuff and info, as well as going "huh?" at many of the eye-popping concept cars.
