Any fans of ‘da Bears’ or football in general will love this attraction opportunity to see Soldier Field, the oldest NFL stadium as well as the largest veteran’s memorial outside of Washington D.C. This stadium was created in 1924, previously known as Municipal Grant Park Stadium, and has underwent 90 years of consistent operation since then. This American football stadium is located on the Southside of Chicago and became the home of the Chicago Bears in 1971. While this stadium is impressive for certain, it is also the 3rd smallest stadium in the NFL and seats only 61,500 guests at a time. In 2003 the Bear’s home underwent interior renovation, it’s 7 acres receiving a much needed facelift!
Soldier Field is not only a football mecca, but a memorial to American soldiers who have died in wars, dedicated on November 11th, 1925. Take a tour of this field to beat the chill of a game and see a behind the scenes look of the field, the South Courtyard, Doughboy Statue, Grand Concourse, United Club, Colonnades, Skyline Suite, and the Visitors locker room. See the medal casted into the benches along the wall dedicated to honoring past heroes, walk through the iconic sidelines for a great photo opp, or see the best view of the entire field from the expensive party and viewing suites. Football fans, history buffs, and Bears fanatics alike will all love this stop, and it’s convenient location next to the museum district and Children’s garden give plenty of opportunity for fun before and after your visit! Be sure to stop by the Soldier Field gift shop before you go to pick up that perfect Bears souvenir!
