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.

Not my cup of tea
Let me start out by being up front and admitting I hate baseball. I was dragged here by family, so don't expect me to talk about the baseball aspect. Consider this a review for non-baseball fanatics. There's something to be said for old historical places. Usually, I'm all for them and love learning their history. When said place is also a ballpark where you go to watch the famous Chicago Cubs, well, then there's also something to be said for the lack of practicalities and nice features. Basically, this ball park falls far short of other ones I've been too. The choice of vendors was pretty slim, the seats were cramped and truthfully, I was terrified the entire time the whole place was going to collapse. Plus ...
Wrigley Field is a must see for any baseball
I've been to Wrigley Field many times. If you want the old fashioned baseball game type atmosphere, nothing beats a day at Wrigley Field. The bleacher seats are great for the loud, beer-drinking fan, and the field seats are great for a clear view. Don't get those mixed up though. The bleachers are not the ideal place for children due to the loud, occasionally vulgar fans screaming at players or spilling beer on seats, but it makes for a one-of-a-kind atmosphere for a drink-loving baseball fan. Get there early, have a drink and some greasy ballpark food, meet some fellow fans, and settle in with a bag of peanuts for a great game. And nothing beats singing Go, Cubs, Go after a (rare) Cubs win, even for a non-C...
