Wrigley Field is one of the most recognizable attractions in Chicago. In fact, it’s actually the third largest tourist draw in Illinois. Any Chicagoan who has ever ventured north of Division Street will openly admit that Wrigley is generally used as a point of reference (much like the North Star) helping millions of visitors reach their desired destinations.
Over the years, Wrigleyville has earned the dubious distinction of being the mecca of summer fun. While libations and sunshine dominate the scene from May to September, the area also has developed into one of the most desirable family destinations in the city due to the plethora of conveniences and features of the neighborhood.
