Love cars?  Well, a 10-day auto show is coming to a city near Rockford this month! So rev your engines and grab your tickets now.

The 2022 Chicago Auto Show is coming back this February with health and safety protocols still in place to make the experience amazing for every attendee.  With over 1,000 vehicles being displayed this year, it's an event you won't want to miss.

Opening day is Feb. 12 and goes through the 21st! February 12-20 the Auto Show is open daily 10 a.m. - 10 p.m. and February 21, 10 a.m. - 8 p.m.  If you want to ensure you get the full experience, make sure to get there bright and early because it's going to be PACKED!

Of course, it's not totally free to get in.  I highly suggest purchasing tickets in advance to make it a whole lot easier when you arrive.  Ticket prices: $15 adults, $10 seniors 62+, $10 children 4-12, Children 3 and under are FREE.  I pass as a toddler, right?

Now, my dad has gone pretty much every year that the Chicago Auto Show has been around.  He loves luxury cars, with the exception of his Lexus he keeps in his garage and only brings out during Summer.  There's no way he could pass up this year's Auto Show.

What types of vehicles will be featured at the Show? Concept vehicles (which are my favorite), Convertibles, Sports cars, Electrics, Diesels, Hybrids, and even Minivans!

One of the coolest parts of this event are the Test Tracks and Drives.  With the outdoor test drives, attendees will get a chance to get behind the wheel of a Ford (must be 18), Kia (must be 21), and Subaru (must be 21). You have to pass a breathalyzer test in order to even get inside the vehicle, too. So, if you're wanting to do some driving at the Auto Show, save your booze for later!

No matter who you are, I don't think you could have a terrible time at the Chicago Auto Show.  I have ZERO interest in cars, but I do enjoy looking at vehicles I could never afford in my lifetime. I live beyond my means... in my head.
