Celebrating its 100th birthday this year, the iconic Windy City ballpark is home to the Cubs, the oldest active American professional sports team to stay in its city of origin. is a throwback stadium right in the middle of the city; the park was the last in the league to install lights (in 1988) and still does not have a Jumbotron. Chicago's most beloved (and perennially disappointing) team may not have won a World Series in more than 100 years or a National Pennant since 1945, but the surrounding neighborhood (known as Wrigleyville) is a great place to hang out after the game and enjoy a drink at one of the many bars and restaurants located steps from the park's entrance.
Insider Tip: One of the most unique features of Wrigley Field is the on townhouses along Sheffield Avenue on the right field line. Plans to expand and renovate the park have threatened to block these views, so be sure to visit the park now to enjoy it in its original splendor.
