Overview

Wrigley Field is one of the country's oldest ballparks and also one of the prettiest. You won't find any Astroturf here because the fans would not allow it. The real grass is kept a lush green, and the ivy grows thick and heavy along the outfield walls. Now home to the Chicago Cubs, at one time the Chicago Bears football team played here. Even if you are aren't a sports fan, you will enjoy a visit to this stadium. There's enough sense of history to satisfy anyone looking for a slice of the past. Make sure to grab a hot dog and a beer before finding your seat to watch the ballgame. Don't have a ticket? You can try to get a free peek of the game at "The Knothole" - a 20-foot-long rectangular opening on the Sheffield Avenue side of the stadium. Don't forget to check out the statue of famed radio and television broadcaster Harry Caray outside.
