When the weather outside is chilly, Chicago locals look to have some fun indoors, and the annual Chicago Auto Show is one of the city's mid-winter favorites. Running from February 8-17 at McCormick Place, the 2020 show features a variety of interactive displays. You'll be able to test drive vehicles, ride along as a professional driver navigates an indoor racetrack, and learn about the new fleets of green vehicles that are set to hit the market this year. And, of course, the show features hundreds of new models on display, ranging from family minivans to high-concept sports cars.
The Chicago Auto Show also hosts a series of special theme nights, including craft beer night (the 14th) family day (the 17th) and more--be sure to check the website for a full schedule. Tickets start at $13 ($8 for children and seniors) and are available online or at the door.
