Wrigley Field, Chicago

#5 of 78 in Sightseeing in Chicago
Tourist Spot Arena / Stadium
Built in 1914, Wrigley Field has been the home of the Chicago Cubs for nearly a full century. Chicagoans take their baseball seriously, and nowhere is that more evident than at this history-steeped stadium. The country's second oldest ballpark still in use, the ivy-covered "Friendly Confines," as the locals call it, has seen more than its share of dramatic games during the longest dry spell in U.S. sports history. Though the Cubs haven't won a World Series title since 1908, the stadium continues to attract die-hard fans from around the country and across the world. Tickets may be hard to come by for Cubs home games, but you can always take a behind-the-scenes tour to see the ballpark's famous clubhouse, dugouts, and press box.

  • Whats not to love? Even when the Cubs lose, you are sitting in a great ballpark, watching baseball, possibly drinking beer. I love that we could bring our own bag of pretzels or peanuts and bottles of water. It gets expensive paying 11 bucks a beer. Now they are getting better beers like Lagunitas, 312 goose island. And they even sell them at your seat. But still 11 bucks a beer when it costs 7 bucks for the 6pack? Drink at a bar before the game. I do love the rooftop experience behind home plate.
  • Wrigley Field is without a doubt one of the greatest baseball stadiums ever built. It's stands the test of time and IMHO is a better design then most modern stadiums the open air patio in the top deck behind home plate offers stunning views of the city. The openess of the whole stadium makes it very comfortable during hot humid days. Very friendly staff. Good neighborhood. Easy access to the EL red line . Will be back when in town !
  • Wrigley Field is one of those stadiums that baseball fans should visit once in their lives for the history. However, beyond that, it's another stadium without much in the ways of "wow factor". I came to Wrigley for a business event and enjoyed watching the game and spending time with colleagues. I was amazed how "in the middle of the city" the stadium was. I come from Milwaukee and am used to Miller Park with its vast parking lot with lots of fans tailgating. Overall the stadium felt like most, but I really disliked how most of the food stands with the bigger food items were on the main level and were always crowded. During certain times at Miller Park, one can travel for food and not have to deal much with lines. At Wrigley it was always a decent wait for most food. I was also to see a lot of the men's bathroom have lines. Overall, I enjoyed my time at the stadium and watching a Cubs game, but would not return unless for another work event.
  • Wrigley Field is the best ballpark that I have ever been to. It has such a cozy feeling, and a nice family atmosphere. The neighborhood it is in is very pleasant. It is great that you can take the El and walk along in the crowd to the ballpark and avoid needing to park in the area. A day at Wrigley is a treat. When people attend a Cubs game, they stay in their seats until the very end, since no on wants to leave until they absolutely have to.
  • Wrigley Field is a sight to see. It is the most beautiful ball park in all the world, and it's even better after all of the renovations. Excellent food vendors and short lines for food and beer when you are in the right places like behind the bleachers. If you have not sat in the bleachers it is a must. They are the best seats at Wrigley Field.
