The field celebrated 100 years in 2014, and the Cubs played here all but two of those years. The stands hold 41,160 people and the fans pack the seats for every game, rain or shine. An entire neighborhood called Wrigleyville formed around the facility, complete with sporting goods shops, bars and eateries for locals and visitors to enjoy all year round.

Lincoln Park Zoo
The heart of busy Lincoln Park is home to the Lincoln Park Zoo where you'll find houses many interesting and colorful animals. Drive to 2001 North Clark Street to take a stroll through the primate house and visit chimpanzees, crowned lemurs, De Brazza's monkeys and even cotton-top tamarins. Visit North American native black bears and river otters before strolling to see the naked mole rat and Hoffmann's two-toed sloth. The resident harbor seals like to sun themselves on a giant rock and swim laps while popping their head out of the water to playfully inspect visitors. In the winter time, Chicago gets cold and many of the animals stay indoors. Some, like the snow leopard, pace in their enclosures as visitors enjoy the holiday-themed Zoo Lights event each December. Your whole family will find animals they enjoy at this fun attraction.
