One of the most incredible ball parks in America. Just being in the neighborhood to hear the roar of the crowd is a treat. Even if you don't like baseball, a sunny afternoon in the bleacher seats is a Chicago highlight.Recommended for:

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.

The second-oldest major league ballpark in the US is celebrating its 100th birthday this year, so it's a great time to go cheer for the Cubs. The ballpark is easily accessible from the Red Line. Like Fenway, built two years earlier, there are many odd nooks throughout the park with limited visibility. A must-see for baseball fans.Recommended for:

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?Recommended for:

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:

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.Recommended for:

Nothing is more classically Chicago than taking in a summer afternoon baseball game at the "Friendly Confines," where the bleacher seats are waaaaay back in the outfield above the ivy-covered walls. Tip: Ticket prices vary, depending on how talented the visiting team is, but when they aren't very good, you can often get same-day tickets in person the morning of the game.Recommended for:

The second oldest ballpark in America, Wrigley Field (home of the Chicago Cubs) is a Chicago institution, and taking in a baseball game here should be considered one of the essential summer experiences in the city. Some of the cheap seats have truly awful views of the field, so pony up a little more and get something on the first- or third-base lines.Recommended for:

It doesn't matter what team you support - if you are in Chicago during baseball season, a visit to Wrigley is a must. The stadium is one of the oldest, its charm rivaling that of Fenway Park. Besides the iconic Wrigley Field sign, take note of the ivy-covered walls surrounding the field and the rooftop stands that look down into Wrigley from across the streets.

Great stadium! Great, loyal fans. My boyfriend at the time wanted to watch a game at Wrigley field just because it was Wrigley field. What I loved most was the stands outside the actual fields. Those apartments scored a great spot! I also like that the surrounding area is full of bars and restaurants. Fun times!

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.Recommended for:

Although Chicago Cubs has not performed well in MLB for long time, fans still like to watch the match live in the stadium. Surrounded by bars and pubs and restaurants, it's not only the ball game, but people really enjoy drinking and partying especially on game day.

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.

Wrigley Field is one of the best stadiums in all of America and the second oldest Major League Baseball stadium in use behind Fenway Park in Boston. It may not have all of the bells and whistles, but it represents a historic feel and look to the way baseball was originally played. Ivy on the walls, organs playing memorable baseball tracks, and the seventh inning stretch.

One of the oldest ballparks in the USA. Home to the Cubs. Great tour available when the Cubs are not playing (so that would be as of september :-)). Also nice: you can watch a game from the rooftops from the surrounding buildings!!
