Many visitors' are surprised at the array of clean and lovely beaches lining Lake Michigan. The Windy City is also known to have some of the friendliest residents of any major metropolis. No matter where you are in this city, every attraction is a short drive away.
Home of the Chicago Bears, Soldier Field is among the most beloved sports facilities in the city. It's located in the South Museum Campus, providing a beautiful view of Lake Michigan as you make your way to the stadium in your Chicago car rental. It was opened in 1924 but was closed temporarily for renovations in 2003, reopening with a greater capacity of 61,500. It's no surprise that the crowd is teeming with energy as onlookers cheer for the Bears - though the team hasn't won the Super Bowl since 1985, Chicagoans remain true to the orange and blue. An interesting fact about this stadium is that the seats are closer than is common in other facilities - fans sit about 37 feet closer to the game than most other fields. It's also designed for superior comfort, with wide seats, built-in cup holders and a layout meant to allow the lake breeze to blow in and cool fans off during humid nights.
