Wrigley Field is a trip back to the days when baseball was king. The neighborhood surrounding the stadium, Wrigleyville, is a great place to spend the day too!
What makes this stadium unique?
Wrigley Field is small and intimate, not a bad seat in the house- unless of course, you’re sitting behind a pole! Ivy covers the outfield walls and the center field is dominated by a manually operated scoreboard adding to the old-school charm. Amazingly, the clock atop the scoreboard has never lost time since its installation in 1941. The singing of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” is led by a celebrity, so get excited about the seventh inning stretch! Outside the main entrance is the iconic red marquee sign reading “Wrigley Field, Home of Chicago Cubs.” For fans looking for an alternative way to catch a game, be sure to look into rooftop seating atop the local shops and restaurants surrounding the stadium.

If you drive to U.S. Cellular Field, be prepared to pay $23 to park in a garage next to the stadium. The CTA Red (Sox/35th) and Green (35th/Bronzeville) line have stops right next to the stadium. For more information check out the CTA website. Also I suggest buying a 3/7 day pass so you have unlimited rides. It will end up saving you money.
