Went to Wrigley for the first time and it was wonderful. We started out on the red line train from downtown and got off at Wrigley. Very short walk to the park. We walked around the entire park before entering and it was very enjoyable and safe. Rode the red line back to our downtown hotel. The whole experience was fantastic.

Wrigley is a refreshing flashback... a FANTASTIC place to absorb and pass along the history of America's Pastime.

THINGS WE LOVED:
- The Red Line. Nothing like taking a train to any game to add to the "experience".
- The entrance. No turnstiles; just raise the gates and then people can walk in. (upon scanning your ticket, of course.)
- Live organ music! We were in town to see our Angels play and the organist had stocked up on SoCal tunes to play before the game... California Girls, the USC fight song (okay, I didn't dig this, but appreciated the effort), and Route 66 among them... brilliant!
- The food! It seems like the concession stands really take pride in presenting the best Chicago has to offer.
- The feel! From the ivy on the walls to the field level ramps that take you UP steps to reveal your first look at the field, everything is just like you imagine it was in "the good old days". Those days are still here.
- Cubs fans! We were wearing our visiting Angels' gear, and that started conversations with several fans over the two days we were there. Both games we sat in front of long time season seat holders who were interested in our trip, in our team, and how we liked Wrigley. After the second game the Angels won, a couple of times on our way out Cubs fans congratulated us for the win. There's almost nowhere else you'll find that happening these days. "The Friendly Confines" is a perfect description for this place.

THE ONE THING WE DIDN'T LIKE:
- The incessant procession of vendors. For game two of the series, we had excellent seats in the 9th row behind the plate on an aisle. But there were vendors walking down our aisle and back about 60% of the time (not an exaggeration - we actually counted missed pitches for a couple of innings to measure it) through the first six innings, blocking our view of home plate. I get that the Cubs have to make money somehow, since they don't have much parking or advertising revenue, but the parade of vendors was absolutely ridiculous. On many occasions there were three different beer vendors in our aisle at the same time. For this reason alone, I could not give a five star rating.

LESSONS LEARNED:
- Get there early, hang out in Wrigleyville, and enjoy the ambiance around the ballpark.
- If you are buying tickets online, look for seats in the middle of your section rather than the aisles due to the excessive vendor issue.
- In the food patio area up top behind home plate, one side serves thin crust pizza and the other serves deep dish. The deep dish is on the right as you look from home plate.
- The team bus for the visitors parks ON THE SIDEWALK on Sheffield near the right field foul pole. After the game, the players walked through an area where fans had close access. If you hang around, you may be able to snag autographs and pictures. Love this!
- Next time we'll book a hotel a bit closer to a Red Line station downtown. (Our walk was half a mile... not too bad, but a bit tiring after night games.)

If you are any kind of baseball fan and are not already in Chicago, this is simply one trip you MUST make. Chicago is a great place to visit aside from the ballpark... add a day or two to explore the rest of the city. Have fun!

I took my 17 year old son on the Wrigley Field tour. We love baseball and this was a VERY COOL tour! Our guide was awesome and very informative. No matter what team you like, you will enjoy the history of the park and the Cubs. Even little tidbits of baseball history as the franchise has influenced all of baseball in the early days of the sport. Enjoy!
