Even though there's a fancy hotel, shiny retail and a multi-use outdoor plaza being constructed at and near Wrigley Field, the historic stadium retains its old timey friendly atmosphere for fans of the beloved Chicago Cubs. Don't be too down trodden about the high-definition Jumbotron and renovations - they're primarily structural improvements and the creation of club levels and suites for those who drink and yammer more than actually watch the game. First opened in 1914 as Weeghman Park, home of the Whales, Wrigley still boasts its ivy-covered brick walls in the outfield and a manual scoreboard lending a good-old-days ambience (one of only two left in MLB). Although the days of $1 bleacher tickets are long gone, the spirits of Santo, Banks and Brickhouse permeate the place. Tours, on days they're scheduled, are 75-90 minutes and non-gameday tours include peeks at the Cubs' dugout and the clubhouse.
