Welcome to the famed home of the Chicago Cubs, the 1914 built Wrigley Field. Located on the North side of the Lakeview community, in a grouping of residences, bars, and eateries known as Wrigleyville, you will find the oftentimes called ‘Friendly Confines’/ Chicago Cubs Stadium. This field seats 41,688 fans at maximum capacity and will be host to major league baseball for the 101st season this year (2015). The cubs have called Wrigley Field home for 99 years, making this the oldest National League ballpark in the nation and the 2nd oldest active major league field after Fenway Park. The Chicago Bears even called this field home from 1921 to 1970!
Once inside your group can stroll through the home of the Cubs and get the chance to see what happens behind the scenes, from seeing the seating bowl and press box to running up and down the bleachers and seeing the visitors and Cubs clubhouse. Your group will see the dugout, field, press box, and Jack Daniels Patio on these general 75-90 minute walking tours. You may also choose to customize your tour with an interactive educational tour that is grade level appropriate, allowing plenty of teacher approved learning while enjoying the ballpark. Once you are here you will delight in seeing the famous ivy covered brick outfield wall, iconic red marquee over the main entrance, hand-turned scoreboard, and last installed lights for after dark play. 3-4 times a year a major concert is held here, the field in the past seeing such big names as Elton John, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, and AC DC! Be sure to pick up your quintessential baseball cards, bobbleheads, or jerseys for any Cubs fans in your life in the shop before you go!
