There are few things as synonymous with Chicago as Wrigley Field. Built in 1914, the stadium has been updated but keeps some of its historical elements. The stadium’s west side has recently been updated to include Gallagher Way – a public space and conference center, some great new restaurants, and Hotel Zachary. We’ll circle Wrigley Field and check out some of the unique elements of having a Major League baseball field in a highly populated neighborhood. 

Then, we’ll head west to Graceland Cemetery and Arboretum. Dating back to 1860, the 120-acre property houses many of Chicago’s founding families and has some fantastic mausoleums and statuary. It also has its folklore and a few ghosts.

The landscape was designed primarily by architects H.W.S Cleveland who William Le Baron Jenney aided, and later Ossian Simonds developed the Victorian-style park. There are about 2000trees here. You’ll also find a lake with koi and turtles and an area that’s been replanted with prairie grasses. 

We’ll loop around to see some of the resting places of Chicago’s forefathers and legends and to learn their histories. The 8K tour takes us through a more extensive tour of Graceland Cemetery.

After we loop through the cemetery, we’ll head back to Wrigley Field and see one of the city’s hidden gems on the way.
