Everything you need to know about visiting Wrigley Field (1060 W Addison St, Chicago IL 60613)
Even when baseball’s not in season, there’s plenty to do at this legendary stadium in Wrigleyville. Fans can tour the Friendly Confines, explore the Park at Wrigley, eat and drink the day away from the stands and so much more. Whatever the occasion, there's no such thing as a boring day at Wrigley Field.
Catch a game
Of course, the main attraction here is baseball, and you don't have to be a season ticket holder to partake. The Cubs typically open their season in April and offer a variety of seats for every price point. For first-time visitors and super fans alike, there's nothing quite like sitting in the bleachers with an ice-cold beer and hot dog in hand (though families with small children might want to look elsewhere for seats). Pro tip: Arrive early to watch practice and avoid the mad rush to get in.
When it comes to ballpark eats, Wrigley Field is a step above the rest. Beyond soft pretzels and nachos, the stadium offers rotating dishes from some of Chicago's top chefs as well as Hot Doug's famous dogs. The historic stadium also plays host to a slew of big-name concerts (think Lady Gaga, Billy Joel and Zac Brown Band) and special events throughout the warmer months of the year.
Park at Wrigley
Located just outside the Friendly Confines at Clark St and Waveland Ave, the Park at Wrigley offers oodles of events and community happenings throughout the week. Check out Green City Market's outpost there, attend a yoga class or run club, see a movie outdoors or enjoy a concert.
