Soldier Field - Distance 2.9 miles
Situated just under three miles from our hotel, Soldier Field was designed in 1919 as a memorial to soldiers; it's used as a venue for many events, but more recently has become known as the home of the Chicago Bears. The Bears moved from their prior location of Wrigley Field in September of 1971 and had their first game in the renovated field on September 29, 2003.
Wrigley Field - Distance 4.8 miles
Originally known as Weeghman Park, Wrigley Field is the second oldest park in the majors built in 1914. The park then became Cubs Park in 1920 after it was purchased from the Weeghman family. The Wrigley family then named it Wrigley Field in 1926 to honor the Cub's owner, William Wrigley Jr. You can still enjoy the original scoreboard which remains working today.
