For baseball lovers, no place beats Wrigleyville. Home to the Cubs at Wrigley Field, Wrigleyville has long been a mecca of bars (check out The CubbyBear), restaurants and sports-themed revelry. Just down the block from the stadium, laugh until it hurts at world-famous Improv Olympic comedy theater, and discover your new favorite band at tiny, terminally hip Metro. During Cubs season, take the Red line train to avoid the trials of parking in this area.
