    The Old Ballpark
    The highlight of my Chicago visit, was my time at Wrigley Field. The second oldest ball park in the Major Leagues, is a most do to all baseball fans. The home of the Chicago Cubs is chock full of baseball history. From the years when the Cubs barely made it out of the cellar of the standings, to the heart break moments moments where the Cubs lost in style, to the 2016 season where they finally were able to win the World Series, Wrigley has witness it all. Known affectionately as the "Friendly Confines" Wrigley Field is one the most beautiful ball parks I've visited. Watching a game here is like stepping back in time. The atmosphere in the neighborhood is electric, the place surrounding the ballpark is full of pubs, bars, and shops. The concession stands have a decent selection food and beers. Overall, Wrigley Field is a must visit to all baseball fans, so get a ticket, get a cap, get some brews, and a play off the outfield ivy, at one baseball's true cathedrals.

    Wrigley is Chicago
    We were lucky to have a gorgeous day to catch the Cubbies at Wrigley Field. Hard to have a bad seat there and one of the lines took us directly there from the City. We went early so we could have lunch in and explore Wrigleyville. Great day!

    A great tour
    Very informative tour, knowledgeable tour guide, forgotten her name sorry. Lovely stadium, lots of history and you get to visit lots of areas of the stadium apart from the home changing rooms. We had a fun time and took loads of photos.

    A must do experience
    Being baseball fans, we wanted to go to Wrigley field for a Cubs game. It was jam packed with fans and the stadium felt very old school. The icing on the cake was the Cubs victory of 11-3 over the Orioles and hearing the fans sing their victory song.

    Park and Ride the L for Cubs Games
    As an out-of-town Cubs fan from about a three hours away, I've been hesitant to take the trains inside Chicago and instead would find parking near the ballpark. My daughter met me for this game and we took the L from downtown. This was so convenient with reduced weekend parking rates as well. As always, the stadium was great and the fans were wonderful. The Cubs came up short, but we still had a great time!

    Wrigley Field Tour at its Finest!
    Whether you are a Cubs fan or not this tour beats none other for baseball fans. The stories told surrounding this iconic palace are second to none. Tour guide Larry and his assistant Haley were remarkable in sharing these stories with us. A tour of the whole ball park minus the sacred new confines of the home team locker room including standing beside the famous outfield wall covered with ivy. The only thing missing was the opportunity to see a ball game as the Cubs were on a road trip.

    Best early 1900s park in the US
    I am a Red Sox fan and been going to Fenway Park for 40 years. Fenway is a mediocre park compared to Wrigley, a gem of a park. At Wrigley, all staff want you to enjoy your visit and they are very friendly, welcoming and cheerful. Chicagoans are naturally welcoming and friendly so the crowd is great and Cubs fans are there to watch the game, not to get drunk and foolish. I loved watching baseball with them ! It just so happened the Cubs were playing the Red Sox when I attended and the Cub fans were appropriately engaged in cheering for their team. There were bathroom attendants in all the women's rooms, which made for clean bathrooms. Like Fenway, there are obstructed view seats. And seats are expensive! I recommend the 300 section seats. Those are located in front of any poles and there is no overhang from the above section so your view of the field is clear. Unlike Fenway, the seats are actually directed toward home plate so you are not craning your neck to turn right or left too watch each pitch. Also, there are plenty of concession stands in the upper sections so you don't have the crowds on the main level.

    NICE DAY AT THE BALLPARK
    My wife and I caught a Cubs game during our recent visit to Chicago. I have been to Wrigley Field before in years past and have always enjoyed the experience. The employees we encountered were all very friendly and quick to provide any assistance they could. While the prices for many food/drink items were rather high, they were in the range you expected to pay at an MLB ballpark and they were all very good. Our hotel recommended we take the train to the ballpark instead of a cab due to the traffic in the area and we did so. The best advice I can give is to go early as the trains get very packed with fans going to the game. The gates on weekends open either 90 minutes or two hours before the game depending on whether it is a weekend or weekday game. There are also places surrounding the ballpark to get a bite to eat/drink if you get there before the gates open. They now only use mobile tickets for entry so be sure you or someone with you has access to a smart phone and has the MLB app downloaded. I'm not a big baseball fan however, I have always enjoyed my visits to this ballpark and I highly recommend it for a nice afternoon.

    Baseball For Purists
    Stadium Tour (Wrigley Field), Part 1 And this…is baseball, for baseball purists like myself. Wrigley Field is known by many as the “friendly confines” and each time that I visit I’m struck by just how small and almost intimate that it feels. While its dimensions are similar to other ballparks, it somehow just doesn’t feel that way. We had the good fortune of sitting fairly close to the action and found the height disparity amongst some of the players quite surprising. 🤯 With perhaps an unintended meaning, I was also surprised just how “friendly” these confines can be after observing Cubs and Reds fans actively mingling (scroll through the pics). 😉 A truly great place to watch a game no matter who you’re rooting for, the lights just seem brighter here. So much so that I can’t imagine what postseason baseball must be like here (sadly, most Cubs fans wonder the same thing). 😳 I was told by @1ehernandez that the best Chicago dog he’s ever had was at Wrigley and I’d have to agree with him! A special thank you to the gentleman who gloriously photo bombed our Review Team after the game! 🤣 And that’s…Henry’s Take. #friendlyconfines

    A trip down memory lane
    Although we didn't have tickets, it was incredible to relive our youth and travel back on the El to Wrigley Field, it was as if time had stopped. The buzz around the stadium was just as we remember, what a fabulous Chicago icon this is. Next time we hope to secure match tickets

Very nostalgic. Great scene around ballpark. For a 100+ yr stadium is in good shape. Not a lot to say. It was more a bucket list check of than a great time

This ballpark is filled with such history. We got to see everything except the Cubs locker room. The tour guide was amazing and had many wonderful stories.

Booked tour directly through MLB/Cubs. Great trip through its history. Must do for any baseball fan. Learned about the rooftop bleachers and visitors clubhouse. Tour guide did not have amplification so it was hard to hear him at times. Had a snack at neat local spot called Wrigleyville dogs (on N Clark) before the tour then had a larger meal at Murphys Bleachers tavern (right behind centerfield) on corner of Waveland/Sheffield. Great place with lots of memorabilia.

50 of us came from out of town to watch our out of state home team play a few games. At first glance inside I felt like I was back in a 1956 Seattle Rainer baseball stadium. Enjoyed the game and glad to be here for the first time. We were seated below the scoreboard and it was a real trip going to the bathroom... taking a elevator, going down 2 stars of steps, walking past the from entrance than up a ramp. Buying a Chicago dog was a real adventure because not knowing that when one gets a hot dog you must crown in another area to put your items on it. Enjoyed the visit. Leaving after the game took over 1 hour to take a regulat 15 minute drive.

My wife and I are Yankees fans, but we're also baseball fans in general and we've been making our way to all of the MLB ballparks (this was 14/30). Wrigley has always been our most anticipated ballpark given its history and we were not disappointed. The ballpark is amazing and they've been able to renovate and keep it modernized while keeping all the classic elements of the ballpark. Our seats were comfortable and our view was great and the food and drink selection was very good as well. It's in a great part of town and it was just a pleasure to see a ballgame here. We'd 100% come back for a Cubs game whenever we're in town!

GUIDED TOUR REVIEW ONLY...Me and the guys were on our annual wifeless weekend getaway. My 3 buddies wanted to do this tour since the season was over and couldn't see a game. I didn't but went along anyway. And full disclosure, I'm not a baseball fan...I don't mind going to a live game once or twice a season, and I'll never watch a game on TV cause its so boring! The $30 90 minute tour takes you through the Seating Bowl, Bleachers, Outfield Ivy, Press Box, Visiting Clubhouse, Dugout Field...all somewhat interesting. Our tour guide was very enthusiastic and energetic...I just wasn't interested in the topic or the many side stories he told. I wasn't alone...I could easily tell most of the wives and girlfriends got dragged into this by their baseball loving men. Like myself.

I'm not the right person for this, but if you're a big baseball fan you'll love it...for me its just ZZZzzzZZZzzz...at least its not golf, which is absolutely the worst and most boring "sport" ever.

Don't miss Wrigleyville and all it has to offer. Lots of places to grab a drink or nightcap, a wide variety of food options, and coffee shops. A great place to visit with friends and family.

I did the tour here recently, such an amazing experience! Does involve a fair amount of stairs. Very worthwhile experience to see the locker room used by Michael Jordan and Babe Ruth, learn about the history of the cubs and the ground. Absolute highlight

Ruben and John guided us on through the friendly confines. Stories were shared on the park's history, team's trials and successes, and memories of players and games over the years. Stops included the Cubs dugout, but we missed the chance to get close to the outfield ivy due to a private event on the field. Our group had nearly 50 people, making it hard to hear the full story if we weren't near the front of the group. Despite that, it was one of the better ballpark tours I've been on over the years.

First time at Wrigley stadium for a Cubs game! Great vibe and it was really cool to walk around Wrigleyville before the game. We took the train which was super convenient cause taking an Uber would have been uber-expensive! The train station is right next to the stadium.
