Seemed like every year, I couldn't wait for the Chicago Auto Show. Going with friends and our parents to spend all day at McCormick Place, checking out all the cool exhibits, new cars, and gushing over the concept cars was always a fun filled day.

Over the years it has gotten bigger and better and the attractions and exhibits have gotten more hands on. From taking Jeeps over big hills to virtual reality goggles, the Chicago Auto Show is fun for everyone. Not to mention you can even test drive some cars!

The concept cars are always a hit because even though they may never be massed produced, the technology inside is often times released within a few years.

The Chicago Auto Show runs from February 8th thru February 17th. It's opened from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day except the 17th when it closes at 8 p.m. Tickets are $13 for adults, $8 for seniors 62+, and $8 for children 7-12. Kids under 6 are free. Buy your tickets in advance and check out some of the exciting stuff coming this year by going to Chicago Auto Show's website.
