Wrigleyville offers a unique lifestyle experience for you as a visitor or if you’re a resident lucky enough to live in this vibrant community. Located on the near north side of Chicago, Wrigleyville is close to the lovely lakefront, but by far its greatest claim to fame is Wrigley Field where you can plant yourself on a Wrigley roof top bar and “root root root for the Cubbies”. Who cares about “Curse of the Billy Goat” and that they haven’t come close to a World Series in a bazillion years?
When the game’s over, stroll around the area to take in the sights. This is a really popular area for upbeat restaurants, offbeat shops, clubs and delightfully offbeat people. Great Wrigleyville restaurants are in abundance. There’s the off-Loop theaters on Belmont near Racine and check out “Boystown”—a must-see strip on Halsted with many gay clubs and bars.
Some of Chicago’s most interesting architecture is found in these neighborhoods on tree-lined side streets filled with charming Victorian houses with gables and intricate woodwork as well as unique brick row houses.
The call of the Loop beckons…One of Wrigleyville’s great advantages is its proximity to everything. Simply hop on the El and you’re in downtown Chicago in minutes where you can take advantage of attractions that make the second city second to none.
Excitement is exhaustive so stay at a B&B. If you’re visiting family or friends, on vacation or getting down to business, we suggest a much more neighborly way to stay than a cold, indifferent downtown Chicago hotel. Stay at one of our fabulous B&Bs (Bed and Breakfasts):
Old Chicago Inn B&B hits it out of the park by providing transportation on their bus to Cubs games. During the holidays, this B&B decorates top to bottom, offers free trips to Michigan Avenue, and hosts a wrapping station.
The Nyberg B&B is a hidden find near the popular Southport Corridor. This Victorian gem is just a few blocks from Wrigley Field and offers a cozy parlor with fireplace, interesting art and antiques.
What an experience and what a trip coming to Wrigleyville is!
