Wrigley Field: Chicago Cubs

12 of 16

Wrigley Field is built on holy ground—a former seminary, to be precise, though America’s second-oldest ballpark is pretty sacred in its own right. The original scoreboard is still hand-operated and the iconic ivy on the outfield wall grows so thick that balls can get lost in the foliage. New traditions are embraced with zeal. Bill Murray and Ozzy Osbourne are among those who've seized the microphone for unconventional takes on “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.” Sure, the Cubs may not have won a championship since 1908, yet the fan camaraderie is unmistakable. Wrigleyville prides itself with neighborhood-wide parties.
