In addition to the many activities and attractions in the area, we are also in the heart of one of the greatest sports cities in the country.   Chicago sports teams hold 28 league championships between them.

  • NFL Football: Catch a football game at Soldier Field, the home of nine-time NFL Champion Chicago Bears, which is less than an hour from the campgrounds.
  • MLB Baseball: Experience history at Wrigley Field, the home of three-time World Series Champion Chicago Cubs, which is just over an hour away and is the oldest stadium in the National League.
  • MLB Baseball: Relish in the Chicago baseball rivalry and watch the three-time World Series Champion Chicago White Sox try to prove the Cubs aren’t the only team in town at Guaranteed Rate Field, less than an hour away.
  • MLS Soccer: Kick it with your friends and family at SeatGeek Stadium, home of Major League Soccer’s first expansion team – the MLS Cup Champion Chicago Fire FC.  It’s the closest pro stadium to us at only 40 minutes.

The United Center is the residence of six-time NBA Champion Chicago Bulls.  This is the place where Michael Jordan set the playoff single-game points record that still stands to this day.  He, Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman, Phil Jackson and many more made history here by winning three straight NBA championships in the early ’90s, and three straight again in the late ’90s.
  • NHL Hockey: Six-time Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks also built their own legacy in the United Center.
