    Sports History and Landmark Tour

    See the homes of Chicago's iconic sports teams as you are escorted in a comfortable van to the city’s top sports parks, learning the history of each during your journey. Begin by visiting the home of the Chicago Cubs—Wrigley Field. Originally built in 1914 as Weeghman Park for the Chicago Federal League baseball team, the Chicago Whales, the stadium name was changed when chewing-gum titan William Wrigley Jr. purchased the team in 1921. Next, stop at the United Center, home of the Chicago Bulls basketball team and Blackhawks hockey team, to see the bronze Michael Jordan statue, officially known as The Spirit. A tourist favorite, the statue was created shortly after Jordan’s retirement to commemorate his 3-consecutive NBA championships as a Chicago Bull. Your next destination is the oldest NFL stadium, Soldier Field. This lakefront field is home to the Chicago Bears.
