During our stay in Chicago, we decided to get some tickets for a baseball game at the oldest standing baseball stadium in the USA. The Chicago Cubs were playing against the Tampa Bay Rays in the legendary Wrigley Fields Stadium, so we decided to splurge and get Club Box infield tickets, costing us around $110 each.
Getting to the stadium is pretty easy. From Central Chicago, catch the Howard/Dan Ryan Red line northbound to the Addison Street stop; just a short walk from the ballpark. For those driving, you can park for free and catch the shuttle service from the Remote Lot at 3900 N. Rockwell.
Calum and I don’t know too much about baseball but the friendly atmosphere coupled with the variety of amenities and exciting mascot; made the day so much fun. Being in Chicago, we of course enjoyed a deep dish pizza during the game. If it is your first visit to the park, head to the First Timers Booth on the right field concourse to get yourself a certificate to mark the special occasion and a picture with the mascot. Ticket Liquidator offers last minute tickets.
Wrigley Field is famous for the ivy-covered outfield walls, which gives the ballpark a unique look.
When we visited (in 2014) they were celebrating the centennial of Wrigley Field.
When in Chicago, it is definitely worth heading to Wrigley Field! Even if you only have 2 days in Chicago, try to at least visit the neighbourhood of Wrigley Field, there are some fantastic bars in the area and you can even catch a came from the rooftops.
