- Wrigley FieldOct 20, 2013
Wrigley is one of the few baseball stadiums in the country that still has old-time charm. I was struck by the lack of advertisements (despite it being named after a large company), as many other stadiums are dominated by obnoxious corporate plugs and billboards galore. Definitely get seats in the bleacher section; it'll make for a classic summer memory.

The Cubs are horrible but their fans make watching them play at Wrigley Field one of the most fun experiences you'll ever have in Chicago.
The general admission bleacher seats are where the action's at. They're actually one of the more pricier tickets too. The fans are rowdy and hilarious. If you arrive after the first inning, it's almost impossible to find a seat, but people are really friendly and will make room if you ask nicely.
Make sure you get a Chicago Dog and a Old Style to complete the whole experience.
Head over to Cubby Bear or Murphy's after the game to continue the party.
If you don't watch the game from inside Wrigley Field, get tickets for one of the rooftop parties across the street. It's also an amazing way to enjoy the game.

I was not a fan of the Cubs or beer until I went to Wrigley Field. I hope this place never changes. I know that there are efforts to upgrade but it is so cool just the way it is. I will say yes to a game at Wrigley Field even if I don't know who's playing. For some reason a hotdog tastes better when six people had to pass it to you.

What a great atmosphere - sports at its best. The stadium is old but really nice. Crowd was enthusiastic even though home team did not win. Did not see any parking nearby and taxi was a bit hard to catch afterward.

I've seen the Chicago Cubs in action within the "Friendly Confines" of Wrigley Field many times over the years. I've been here in the Spring wearing a toque and mittens, on a hot Summer day or sultry evening, and in the Fall when the season was all but over. My only Winter regret was not attending the Hockey Classic in 2009 (Black Hawks Vs. Red Wings).
Other highlights have included: taking the El to the game and back, buying peanuts under the red marquee, hearing Harry Carey (z"ll) sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" and yell "Cubs Win!", watching baseballs get stuck in the Ivy, the manual scoreboard, and watching a home run derby on a windy day. And maybe one day, I'll try out one of the rooftop seats along Waveland or Sheffield.
I've also had seats all over the place and have particularly enjoyed the 1st Base side near the field for the view and the bleachers for the atmosphere and just listening in on all the running commentary. After all, Chicago Cubs fans are some of the most knowledgeable baseball fans around. And when I'm back visiting my folks in Des Moines, we often take in an Iowa Cubs (AAA) game and see what the Wrigley future might hold. And next season, who knows?

A Cool game to attend if you want to spend the money....don't expect a W. Plenty of bars surround the park...get there early before you go in to the game. Hit the bars again after the game for late night.

I am not a baseball fan, but Wrigley Field is one of the most iconic sporting venues in the United States. It is definitely worth checking out, especially if you are a baseball fanRecommended for:Local Culture
