Soldiers Field is in the lower right of this map. If you don't want to walk from the Roosevelt Stop (Red Subway Line, as well as Green and Yellow 'El' Line), you can transfer to the 146 Bus, which stops right at the stadium.

First of all,it is called Soldier Field, not Soldiers....recommend taking a bus on Michigan Ave (there are multiple routes that go along Michigan) to have a drink/breakfast at Kitty OSheas before the game...about 900 South Mich...Popular spot for pre game...then what everbody does ( and is by far the easiest) is walk across Grant Park, past Field Museum to Soldier Field...Pub trans will not get you much closer anyway...Even taking a cab won't get you much closer because of all the people with cars...GO BEARS...

If you will be coming from the north, take the CTA #146 bus southbound on Michigan Ave.It will get you right to the stadium.

If you will be coming from the south take the Metra Electric to the 18th St. station. It's a fairly short walk across a bridge over the trancks and Lake Shore Dr. to Soldier Field.

Hmm - The 27th of September against the Green Bay Packers. Be prepared to pay a minimum of $150 per ticket.

Travel Tips for Chicago

A River Runs Through It

by spgood301

The Chicago River runs right through the city. This is a signature part of the Chicago scene, and it's something I never tire of. The beautiful buildings, old and new, along the river. The bridges that span it. Take a breath and enjoy. Not a fond memory, more of a warning. When walking across these bridges in the winter, it can get VERY cold. To me, colder than city streets.

Visit the aquarium

by seagoingJLW

Visit the aquarium, also on the lake, at 1200 S. Lakeshore Drive. It is in Grant Park.

The Museum of Science and...

by MagpieWalk

The Museum of Science and Industry is a must see. When I was a kid there was no where I liked better to go. Even though half the displays seem to be out of order every time I've been there, there's something magic about it. The lakefrong on a summer's day and the skyline on a clear night are what I miss most when I'm away.

by ainhoaflies

ART INSTITUTE OF CHICAGO. Some of the most famous paintings in the world are here, including an incredibly strong collection of Impressionist and post-Impressionist paintings, with seminal works by Monet, Renoir, Gauguin, and van Gogh. Some of the museum's best known paintings include Grant Wood's American Gothic, Edward Hopper's Nighthawks, Pablo Picasso's Old Guitarist, and Georges Seurat's A Sunday Afternoon on La Grande Jatte-1884. Don't miss the Stock Exchange Room, a splendid reconstruction of the trading floor of the old Chicago Stock Exchange. The two lion statues flanking the museum's main entrance are probably the most well-known, and photographed, in the world. 111 S. Michigan Ave., PHONE: 312/443-3600.

Chicago River

by goingsolo

Lake Michigan is not the only popular body of water in Chicago. The river begins north of Chicago near Lake County and flows through the city. Like the lake, the river is a popular throughfare for scenic cruises and is also used for commercial ships.

Like nearly every other facet of their city, Chicagoans take great pride in their river. Every St. Patrick's Day, the river is dyed green using special chemicals. It is debatable whether this process harms the living creatures in the river, but the tradition continues and large numbers turn out to see the green river.

In order to allow traffic to cross the river, the city developed a number of movable bridges. There are several designs of these bridges and Chicago has more of them than any other city.
