“Long Live Traditional Ballparks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Wrigley Field is a great baseball experience, even if the team leaves a lot to be desired. I took my daughter for a game and we had a great time.

Arrive at Wrigleyville early. Instead of heading into the ballpark right away, stake out a place to have lunch and a couple of pops nearby. Soak in the atmosphere and visit a few souvenir stores. Many of the restaurants feature informal dining, outdoor options, etc.

For tickets, bypass the Cubs and go straight to Stub Hub. i got two tickets in the upper deck behind first base for $21 each. Since Wrigley Field is old, every seat is much closer to the field than the newer parks. Just make sure your seat isn't located behind a pole. That's a possibility. Buy your tickets a week or two in advance. if possible, attend a day game. There's nothing better than day baseball on the north side.

Also, take the CTA to and from the ballpark. Parking rates are a joke in and around the stadium and getting out of the lots can be a hassle after the game. The "El" is the way to go.

Finally, grab an ice cold Old Style and enjoy the game.

“Can't miss for a baseball fan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Walking in is like stepping back in time. Even though the product hasn't been very good of late (oh, a little over 100 years) it's a beautiful place to see a game.

“Take me out to the balllllgame.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Wrigley field is part of the fabric of this neighborhood, and, even if you don't like baseball, you should go see a game in Chicago. People are intense. I personally hate baseball on the grounds that it is phenomenally boring, but thoroughly enjoyed my experience here.

“A landmark for a reason”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Fantastic setting, views and overall great experience. Historical statues make it a must see. At night it's a great place to stroll and take in the sights as well.
