A Historic Baseball Field That's Never Short on FunFlag review
The popcorn. The crack of the bat on a ball. The traditional song that leads the Cubs into glory. The view as the sun sets over the field and the dynamic Chicago neighborhood. Wrigley is good for a date night, an outing with friends, but also for families. You can enjoy making a memory on a birthday or father's day, or take in the excitement just because the weather is right during the summer. Wrigley might not be the most comfortable or convenient field (parking can be expensive, but it's easy to get to with public transportation), but it's always unforgettable and full of energy and entertainment. Because of the noise and revelry of other crowdgoers, though, it might be best to make sure you try to enjoy a game with kids 5 and older.
Tips for Families
Plan ahead! Wrigley, like any field, can get busy and loud. If you're with little ones, make sure that you know the best way to get to snacks, bathrooms, and how to handle people standing up to enthusiastically root for their team. It's also probably a great idea to bring a backpack instead of a diaper bag if you have really small kids or just want to bring snacks or unopened water so that you don't have to struggle to find a place under a seat or on the bleachers to store things.

My Kid's Review

I love wrigley field. It is great to have an original ballpark to see a baseball game at! Recently I visited during the winter to see the new christmas tree and check o...
This is my home. I cannot express the feeling of joy I get sitting even in the nosebleed section of this ballpark. Every time I come here I can't wipe the smile off of my face. I don't know if it is the history of the park, the social connection all we Cub fans have, or the beauty of the ivy walls. Wait. It's all of it. The overwhelming feeling of excitement takes over when I see the team I grew up falling in love with are playing on the field. This is why people love the Cubs. It's not because we win all the time and have 20 championships under our belts (because we clearly don't), but if we did, it wouldn't be the reason. This is a team that brings the people of the city together to share a wonderful time...
Visiting this bit of history is amazing! The architecture is fabulous and the bleachers on top of the buildings across the street are so awesome to see! Watching a Cubs game in Wrigley is as good as it gets. I even got lucky and saw the Cubbies win! Hahah. The El was nuts getting to and from the game so I'd advise to arrive and leave 30 min or so before and after the rush. We were packed like sardines in the steamy hot terminal waiting for the train after the game until we decided to wait. Grab a drink at one of the many bars around the stadium to kill time! Also, don't forget to get your "my first visit" certificate free once you're inside the stadium! You don't have to be a kid to get one! You've got to a...
Oh Wrigley-Wrigley-Wrigley... how do you do it? How in the world do you not crumble? I am mighty impressed that you're able to stand strong with all the debauchery that happens on your grounds near-daily for 7 months... err... 6 months every year. I'm big on sight lines. Newer stadiums tend to think baseball should be played in giant stadiums. In fact, baseball was born in places like Wrigley: in city neighborhoods, right in the thickets of daily life. And with those new stadiums goes bad sight lines. You're either too high up, too far set back from the field or so distant from home plate in the outfield there's a disconnect. For Wrigley... the sight lines from the bleachers are incredible. I once sat on the...
