Came here for a Rammstein concert for the first time (first time at the venue and first time seeing Rammstein). Not being used to 'the big city' we were a little nervous about how parking and venue navigation would go. No worries. They have well managed parking lots (we prepaid for South Lot). The route to walk to the venue was easy to follow. Once in side there was plenty of signage to help you figure out where to go. Plenty of vendors on all levels for refreshments and plenty of decently clean restrooms. We arrived 2 hours prior to our showtime and had less than half the parking lot full at that time. The line for merchandise was 10X longer than the line to enter the venue. For exiting we left during the last song, which we could hear anyhow. We hotfooted it out to the lot and were among the first to leave the lot. I am sure later the lot was quite congested but they do have people managing the exits so that it went quickly when we were ready to go.

My friends and I came here to see Rammstein on 09/03. It was an amazing show! Although if you're afraid of heights, dislike walking up/ down steep inclines (or walking a lot in general), or become short of breath easily, I would not recommend getting seats in the top sections. The open ceiling with giant gusts of winds were a little nerve-racking. It was a little difficult to figure out where to get to our section, we walked right by some of the ramps without even realizing it. Once we finally figured out where to go, we kept going up and up and up.. By the time we got to our seats, we were all out of breath. I saw another reviewer state that when your show/ event is over, be patient. I cannot stress that advice enough. There are thousands of people all trying to get out at the same time, it's gonna be crowded and you'll be walking at a snails pace. Wear your comfy walking shoes!

This was a treat for my husband, a lifelong Bears fan, but I enjoyed it as well. Our guide (forgot his name, but he said he is with the Chicago FD) was funny and charming, and clear and informative, from Bears lore and Chicago history to the best place to go for hot dogs and pizza. Highly recommend!

My son is a huge NFL fan and a big fan of the Bears. We were in town and although couldn't see a game due to COVID, decided to stop and go on the Stadium tour. John Finnegan was our guide and couldn't have been more impressed with experience. The history, views, knowledge of working with the Bears organization for all of the years

We really only got to see the exterior from both the Fields Museum and driving to the Shedd Aquarium. Still it was something I wanted to see. I loved Walter Payton and the 1985 Bears. The new stadium has changed the historic look to modernize the seating. However, seeing the signature, historic Greek columns of the exterior was awesome. I'd love to come back for a game.

My brother and I went to the USWNT game against South Korea. The plus is that for me this stadium offers RC Cola, which is my favorite. Also they offer Chicago style pizza. They honor the armed services as you enter the stadium. However the walkways are narrow and getting in and out can be quite cumbersome. It's not the best stadium, but one that you should go to a lot.

I love Soldier Field. I saw The Rolling Stones here. The entry process was super easy. Unlike other arenas the people who work here don’t yell at everyone. The lines move fast for food. The seats aren’t sticky. You can see from everywhere. I felt really safe. I can’t wait to see another show here. It’s a lovely outdoor venue.

This is a warning to anyone who might buy a Bears ticket from a scalper outside Soldier Field. A ticket scam is very prevalant in Chicago where one person passes tickets that have already been used to another person outside the stadium. No re-entry into the stadium is allowed, so altough the tickets appear to be valid, they have already been used and anyone trying to use them a second time will be denied entry. Apparently the NFL and Chicago Bears don't care about cleaning up the scammers outside their stadium, so beware buying any tickets from scalpers! The parking on game day requires a coupon for any lot within half a mile, but parking on the 18th street lot is only $16 dollars (only?). Then you can board a school bus shuttle that takes you as close as the coupon lots. Compared to first-class cities, the parking and ticket situation make Chicago's Soldier Field dead last in my ranking of places I will ever go again.

We visited Soldier Field for a stadium tour and it was amazing! I'm a Bears fan so I may be partial but my boyfriend being a Colts fan found the tour fun and interesting. Soldier Field is our countries largest memorial to our soldiers and it shows it. You get to visit one of the executive suites, the visitors locker room and you can go out on the field. Ware comfy shoes because you walk inside and outside. Lots of picture opportunities and beautiful views of Lake Michigan. Lots of history to be learned here and there's an awesome video at the beginning with Coach Ditka. An affordable outing for the family.

We came here for a Bears game from out of town, so we'd never visited Soldier field. We took the bus in and from only 2 miles away, it took over an hour to get into the parking lot due to traffic. Once inside, it was a little confusing as to which stairwell went where and which level we were on. Around the inside "edges" it was nearly impossible to get around. However, there was an outside "edge" we took and we were able to get around much quicker.

Our seats were in the 9th row in one of the end zones. We could still see everything and were very glad to be in the lower bowl as we heard the very upper bowl is steep and hard to watch from.

If you're leaving and using the public busses as we did, it's highly confusing, even to the local Chicagoans we asked. It wasn't til we asked one of the friendly CTA folks that they cleared up which bus we should take.

If you're coming here for the first time and not familiar with the layout, parking or public transit, it'd be a good idea to look over some logistics ahead of time, so you know where you're going.
