Today I'm posting about my third and final day in Chicago. Make sure you read about Day 1 and Day 2 first!
Wrigley Field around noon for a tour. Fenway Park will always be my favorite ballpark but I must admit that Wrigley Field is pretty cool too! Wrigley is the 2nd oldest ballpark left in America and it was really neat to hear a lot of the history on it.
Above are views of the field from different spots. The bottom right picture is of the bars/restaurants outside the park. You may notice the bleachers on top of the bars. People can buy "tickets" to go there to watch the game (and eat and drink). Pretty cool right! The Cubs even get 17% of the money made from each bar!
Sky Deck. This was really cool (but if you are afraid of heights I suggest you skip this attraction)! There is a glass portion that you can stand in to have a great view of the entire city!
We had a great time but had to make our visit to the Sky Deck short so that I could get to the airport to come home. I'm pretty impressed with all I got to see in the 3 days I was there. I really feel like I got a good sense of the city. Mark was a great tour guide!
If you have never been to Chicago I recommend you add it to your list of places to see!
Next up in my trip to Ireland at the end of May!!!!!!
