If not sure where to travel this year, check out the Chicago Travel & Adventure Show at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Feb. 8-9, 2020.

Hundreds of destinations from Alabama to Amelia Island and Africa to Australia plus cruise lines will have exhibitors with suggestions on where to stay, when is the best time to go and what are the cost options.

It’s a fun show where guests can listen to and ask questions of Rick Steves, writer and host of Rick Steves Europe and Travel with Rick Steves, Josh Gates, host, The Travel Channel’s Expedition Unknown, Pauline Frommer editorial director of Frommer’s Guides and Peter Greenberg, TV reporter, producer and CBS News Travel editor.
