Auto shows are incredibly fun. Huge convention halls full of perfectly detailed and shiny vehicles with the latest features, immaculate classics and concept cars that show what could come. The entire place is filled with new car smell and buzzing with maker representatives that can tell you all about each vehicle. You don’t need to be in the market for a new vehicle to enjoy an auto show. There’s plenty to see and do, and if you love a day exploring cars as much as we do, be sure to check out these top U.S. auto shows. 

Check out these fantastic auto shows: 

1. Chicago Auto Show

5. Las Vegas Auto Show

Put on by MotorTrend, the Las Vegas Auto Show is a great option for those that want to sneak in some auto fun as part of a larger vacation experience. The Las Vegas Convention Center is right off the strip in the heart of Vegas, so you can hit the auto show during the day and then walk to some fine dining or entertainment at any of the surrounding hotels and casinos. The next show will be in Spring 2023.  

6. New York International Auto Show 

Dating back to 1900, the New York International Auto Show is another option that’s been going for over a hundred years.
