Sports, Theater and More

We don’t have to tell you that Chicago sports fans are some of the most passionate in the country. You can join them at iconic venues like Wrigley Field and Soldier Field for local games. Or, sidle up to a bar in one of the city’s breweries, bars or restaurants and join the crowds cheering on the Cubs or Bears with some local fare. Chicago is also a thriving theater town, with great performances on tap in the Downtown Theater District. Make time for some acclaimed theaters like Steppenwolf and Second City and you may just catch the stars of tomorrow today.

 

SPORTING EVENTS

Wrigley Field (Home of the Chicago Cubs)
1060 W. Addison Street
Built in 1914, Wrigley has hosted Major League Baseball for 100 years and the Chicago Cubs for 98 years. Catch a game or take a tour of the historic stadium then chow down on a Chicago Dog, slice at Giordano’s, or nacho’s served in a replica of a Cubs’ batting helmet. More info

Soldier Field (Home of the Chicago Bears)
1410 Museum Campus Drive
312-235-7000
Outdoor events and concerts are common in the summer months. But the real action is, of course, during NFL season, when the Bears play at home and the fans tailgate in the lot. You’ll recognize the iconic venue and its lakefront setting from primetime appearances, but there’s nothing like joining the faithful locals in person to cheer on the Bears in the crisp fall air. More info

U.S. Cellular Field (Home of the Chicago White Sox)
333 W. 35th Street
Come winter, fans will be in their element watching the Chicago Bulls at home—as well as the 2013 Stanley Cup-winning Blackhawks at the same venue. More info

United Center (Home of the Chicago Bulls and Chicago Blackhawks)
1901 W. Madison Street
312-455-4500
The Sox have played here since 1991, after they spent 81 years at their original home, Comiskey Park. Keep in mind that White Sox fans are not Cubs fans and vice versa! More info
