The Chicago International Auto Show

February 11, 2023


Ever since I was old enough to take the streetcar, when growing up in Chicago, I was sure to take in the Chicago Auto Show. Even back in the 50′s it was a great event traditionally held at the old Chicago stockyards.

Of course, times have changed. McCormick Place is now the host facility and the event has taken on a much more international flavor. I have attended auto shows all over the country and none compare to the Chicago presentation with respect to glamour and sophistication. It is truly a first class international event attended by auto aficionados from all over the world.

First staged in 1901, the Chicago Auto Show is the largest auto show in North America and has been held more times than any other auto exposition on the continent.

With respect to this great event, we at Gold Crown Travel would like to make this a special day for everyone joining us. Although it is a bit more costly to arrange a tour of this type on a weekend, we felt a day when father and son, daughter, wife, car guy and girlfriend, could enjoy this event without having work or school stand in the way would embellish the experience.

Transportation will be provided by a luxury motorcoach equipped with restroom, AC outlets, and DVD.

This is sure to be a great friends and family event.
