Things to Do in Chicago This Weekend: Dr. Seuss, Monster Jam

Happy birthday, Dr. Seuss! Oh, the places you'll go...in a giant mud-spewing monster truck. This weekend the Monster Jam tears up the Allstate Arena in Rosemont with wheelies, donuts, big engines, and even bigger tires.

Train-lovers and budding historians alike will find a rich story to explore at The Chinese Helped Build the Railroad – The Railroad Helped Build America, honoring the thousands of workers who helped create our country's transportation foundation. This is the last weekend for this exhibit! There's plenty more to do this weekend, from maple sugaring to Nick Jr. Live!, so check our picks below to get inspired. If you're looking for even more family fun, our event calendar and winter fun list should help.
