Our family trip to Chicago this summer was nothing short of amazing! The weather was great, we found tons of things to do, and bonded as a family like no other. We shared some fun things to do with your family in Chicago, and now it’s a MUST that we share our awesome tour of Wrigley Field, the home of the Chicago Cubs!
My son is a huge baseball fan, he has been playing since he was 4 years old and has a goal of visiting every single MLB stadium. It was a great opportunity to get another stadium notch under our belts while we were in Chicago, check out some photos from our tour of Wrigley Field.
This is one of the famous statues out in front of Wrigley Field. I don’t remember who this one is, the tour guide told us but my memory is crap.
When you arrive, you’ll split up into groups. There were about 4 groups of 50-ish people in each one, there were a lot of families interested (see first picture, the line was insane)! This was our tour guide, he pretty much knew everything there is to know about Wrigley, the Cubs history, and all.
When you take the Wrigley Field tour, you’ll get to walk through and go to the seating bowl, press box, bleachers, the Cub’s clubhouse, the visitor’s clubhouse, Cub’s dugout, and the majestic field! On game days, no clubhouses, dug outs or press boxes will be available (we went on a game day). These two were eager to tour the stadium…
We got to walk the perimeter of the field, this was taken right behind home plate. The field was being prepped for the game that afternoon, we got to see some of the players warming up just as we were leaving!
This guy is listening intently to the tour guide. Did you know that Wrigley Field is over 100 years old?
Little sister was being a sticker collector…
Here’s a shot of all of us on the field during the tour. Fun times!
The next time you’re in Chicago during baseball season, take the family to Wrigley Field for a tour. Baseball fans will love to see what goes on behind the scenes, where the Cubs have played for 99 years! If you’re visiting, you can actually take the train from the Downtown Chicago area like we did, take the RED line and get off at the Addison station.
