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.

  • Iconic baseball field. Always a pleasure to watch a game or just see it from the outside. Cubs fans are always out in a frenzy around the stadium! What a good time!  more »
  • Fun, fun, fun. The food is great. The excitement is electric. If you must drive, drive north of the park a few el stops and hop on the el to the Addison Street stop and walk over.  more »
  • As someone from a different state, we were treated to great fans and game. Will go again if given the chance!  more »

  • 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.
  • First time experience at Wrigley. Bucket list item for sure. Pretty disappointed overall though. Cool to be at such an historic park. Fans were all really cool even though I had Cardinals gear on. What sucks is that we paid 100 bucks per ticket for "Bleacher Seating". Would've been nice to know that it means sit wherever you want and first come first serve. Ended up standing room only and stood the whole game. When you show up in the first inning, you would think you'd be able to get a damn seat. Not to mention the hot dogs sucked. I'll stick with Busch Stadium anytime I want to see a Cards vs. Cubs game.
  • The line moves quickly. The food is decent and the merchandise prices are great. The bathroom lines move quickly. The view of the players/game is great from anywhere you seat. The Cub fans are cool they're not disrespectful towards the other teams fans - they are there to watch the game and have a good time. The reason they got 3 stars is for the gift they gave away on opening night - a refrigerator magnet with the season schedule on it: come on really!!! You are the World Series Champs and on opening night you only give away a measly refrigerator magnet? I've been to plenty of other sporting event and they give away hats, towels, shirts, trophy replica's etc. Any of those would have been better. Then there were no updates about the rain delay at all - no one made an announcement about how long it would be or anything. The only other bad thing is the sound system - its good on the bottom sections but horrible on the top sections. Overall, I liked the experience.
  • I've been going to Wrigley for over 40 years and just went to a game with the new additions and I have to say that I was a little scared at the what I would walk into but it was incredible. Check out my panoramic picture of the new grassy lawn area and outdoor beer garden. They added sections like this throughout the ballpark and somehow kept that nostalgic feel that defines Wrigley.
  • We had a fantastic time at historic Wrigley Field! What a thrill to be there! The Cubs were awesome. The crowd was incredible, and the atmosphere was second to none. Will definitely go back if I ever have the chance!
