Wrigley Field

Tour the iconic grounds and catch a game March through September at Chicago’s beloved baseball stadium.

Fans of baseball know Wrigley Field as the long-time home of the Chicago Cubs. Built in 1914, this is one of the oldest and best-known ballparks in the US. Some of the most memorable moments in baseball history have been played out here, including Babe Ruth’s now famous “called shot” in 1932 during the World Series. He allegedly pointed to the bleachers, predicting that he’d hit a home run, and then did. Legendary Cubs player Ernie Banks nicknamed the stadium "The Friendly Confines" because fans were wild about their team and ballpark. Catch a game and mingle with the passionate locals if you’re in town March through September. 

Also available during baseball season are informative guided tours of the stadium that run just over an hour. If it’s a game day you’ll visit the seating bowl, bleachers, indoor batting cage and field. Non-game day tours include the visitor’s clubhouse, Cub’s clubhouse and dugout, press box, bleachers and field. Book in advance online to secure tickets. 

The stadium is famous for its ivy covered outfield and original scoreboard, built in 1937. During games the score is still changed by hand. The art deco style red sign that has been hanging over the stadium entrance since 1934 is something of a local landmark. It reads: Wrigley Field, Home of the Chicago Cubs. 

Nearby rooftops can be a good place to catch a game if you miss out on tickets for the stadium itself. There are some great views available at  official Wrigley Field rooftop venues (as opposed to private apartment buildings) offering bleachers, food and drinks.

You’ll find the stadium five miles north of downtown. It is easy to reach by public transport.
