Wrigley Field during a baseball game

Wrigley Field is an iconic landmark in Chicago, and many baseball fans from all over the country make it a point to visit this stadium at least once in their life. While Wrigley Field is primarily home to the Chicago Cubs, it serves as a great space for concerts too. Find out all the things you should know before going to Wrigley Field, and contact Perillo BMW near Winnetka with any questions.

Wrigley Field Address

Wrigley Field is located at 1060 W. Addison Street. If you love the movie Blues Brothers, then you may already know this–ex-con Jake Blues tells an unwitting police officer that he lives at this address, and the officer gets all the way to the famous front entrance of Wrigley Field before realizing he’s been duped.

Wrigley Field Parking

Wrigley Field is located in the bustling Wrigleyville neighborhood on the north side of Chicago, which means you’ll be very limited on parking. In fact, Wrigley Field parking pretty much relies on public parking, as there’s limited field-related parking on site. Instead, you should use these parking tips:

  • Use a ride share service: Instead of driving yourself, let a ride share service like Uber or Lyft bring you to the field. This way, you don’t have to worry about parking at all.
  • Use public transportation: There is a lot of public transportation around Wrigley Field, so consider taking a CTA bus or the “L” rapid transit to the game.
  • Park somewhere else: Use apps like SpotHero to help you find nearby Chicago parking that won’t cost a fortune.

Hotels Near Wrigley Field

If you are visiting from further away, there are also plenty of downtown Chicago hotels you can stay in. This will also allow you to take more time exploring the city while you’re here. Walk around and enjoy some of the local restaurants and bars that are close to the field, visit world-class museums, or head to the lake.

Wrigley Field Nightlife

There are so many restaurants and bars located very close to Wrigley Field. Clark Street, right in front of Wrigley field, is crawling with bars like The Cubby Bear, Sluggers, and Casey Morans, but if the Cubs just won a game they can get pretty rowdy. If you want a quieter atmosphere you’ll want to walk a few blocks away from Wrigley.
