Soldier Field (Home of the Chicago Bears football team) 3.2 km/2.0 miles
As one of Chicago's most famous landmarks, Soldier Field was developed in 1919 as a memorial to soldiers. Soldier Field is used as a venue for many events but more recently known as the home of the 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.
United Center (Home of Chicago Bulls basketball team/Chicago Blackhawks hockey team) 3.2 km/2.0 miles
Labeled as the largest arena in the United States, The United Center hosts over 200 events each year. Since its opening in 1994, it has also had over 20 million visitors. In Chicago, it is most well known as the home to our Chicago Blackhawks hockey team and the Chicago Bulls basketball team.
US Cellular Field (Home of the Chicago White Sox baseball team) 4.8 km/3.0 miles
The Chicago White Sox have always called the South Side their home but only since 2003 has it been referred to as US Cellular Field. The new Comiskey Park opened in 1991 and features a remarkable scoreboard (still intact), beautiful arches and over 40,000 unobstructed-view seats.
Wrigley Field (Home of the Chicago Cubs baseball team) 6.4 km/4.0 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.
