Welcome to the Windy City, home to world-class museums, top-notch restaurants and storied sports teams, including the Chicago Cubs. Business may bring you to Chicago, but there are so many reasons to stay and explore.
If you love baseball, then your Chicago business trip should include an outing to Wrigleyville. As the oldest National League ballpark and one of the most iconic stadiums in the United States, Wrigley Field ranks high on the bucket list of every baseball enthusiast in America. A visit to Wrigleyville can be the perfect business outing or a memorable way to spend your afternoon when you wrap up your meetings.
To help you make the most out of your visit, we asked Jim Kearns, long-time Chicago Cubs usher, to share his choice Wrigleyville spots. For 22 seasons and more than half his life, Jim has been a staple at Wrigley Field, working the same aisle for players’ families and season ticket holders. Jim bleeds Cubbie blue and even proposed to his wife from a skybox at the stadium. Not only does he know the choice spots within the historic field, he knows his way around the neighborhood. From where to stay to the best food to baseball, here are the choice spots to experience in Wrigleyville.
