    Wrigley is at Addison and Clark. You can take the Red line El train to Addison, or a #22 Clark bus. The Willis is at Wacker & Adams, on a few bus lines including the #151 and #156. Navy Pier is at Grand and the lake (east!) you would take a #66 bus at Chicago Avenue. The Hancock is at Michigan Ave and Pearson - any Michigan ave bus north would get you there. The last 3 places are probably walkable from your hotel.

    You don't want to go to Wrigley especially if there isn't a game going on. The Cell is a nicer ballpark anyways, Wrigley is falling apart and is ancient. I'll tell you how to get there though, once you get on the el you'll want to get on the red line take the red line towards howard not towards 95th/dan ryan and get off at addison. Wrigley Field will be about a half block away.

    As for the Willis Tower (Sears Tower) the closest stop is Quincy which is on the brown, orange, purple and pink lines. The closest to Navy Pier is the Grand stop on the red line, you can go one block south of this station to Illinois Street and catch a bus to Navy Pier or you can walk, it's about a 15-20 block walk though and if you do walk just follow Grand Ave towards the lakefront.

    It'll be quite a walk from downtown to Wrigley, so if you really want to see Wrigley Field just take the El. The other two aren't too far apart but it's still quite a walk between them.

    I am not a fan of baseball, but I am sick of the cubs and Wrigley Field as well. I am tired of being called "A Lovable Loser" everytime I go out of town because of the cubs and bears! I don't even care and I am called that being from Chicago because of those teams! It's embarrasing.

    I was hoping that with the Bulls, White Sox and Hawks winning recently that the lovable loser crap would go away!

    Forget Wrigley. Go to Sox park or US Cellular Field rather and see a beautiful stadium. After, take the train one stop down and eat in Chinatown. The best joint there is the Phoenix. You may wait a while for a table but it is so worth it.

    of all the things in Chicago to see and do and you are going to waste time and money at an old ballpark all the way uptown that is a dump and hosts the worst team in all of sports history? I know you are kidding LOL good one! You almost got me.

    wrigley field is an old dump that has literally been falling apart in recent years. And it hosts a team that has not won anything in 104 years!! And NO for the record I am not a Sox fan. I am not even a baseball fan at all, but I still know the facts about what I am talking about.

    and even though i dont care even I am smart enough to know that the Sox, NOT the Cubs have at least won a few times in the last 100 years lol
