This century-old ballpark is home to the Chicago Cubs, who finally paid back diehard fans with a World Series win in 2016 (the previous one was in 1908). The party neighborhood around it is known as "Wrigleyville," full of restaurants and bars. The ballpark is famous for its ivy-covered brick walls in the outfield, its iconic red sign, the manually operated scoreboard, and its giant troughs in the men's bathroom. Expect long lines and stadium prices for food and beer. You'll want to stand and sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" with the crowd during the 7th inning stretch. Fans will wave white "W" flags when the Cubs win and sing "Go Cubs Go." To book a guided tour to see the dugout, press box, bleachers and the field, check out the Wrigley Field tours website.
