Soldier Field is located in the heart of downtown Chicago, which can be a challenge when it comes to finding somewhere to park (we’ve all been there). If you’re heading to a Bears game anytime soon, here a few tips for finding those coveted parking spots.
Use Online Tools
There are many online tools that can be a big help when you’re looking for parking. Spot Hero is a great app you can use to find and reserve spots online for the day of the game. You can find available public parking online, and many places will also allow you to reserve the spot. Doing either of these is a great way to eliminate the need for leaving early and having to stress about finding a place to park. Not only does this relieve the stress of searching for a spot, but you can pay online saving you time on game day. If you park in a metered spot, you can download the ParkChicago app, making it easy to add more time to your meter during the game.
Find a Parking Garage
Another great option for parking includes public parking garages, especially Millenium Park and Grant Park locations. Both of these garages charge a reasonable rate of $30-$35 for game day, which is a great deal compared to what other garages charge on game day. Both are located North of the stadium, which allows fans to avoid traffic on their way home.
Parking on a Budget
If you’re worried about spending too much on parking, and you don’t have a problem with walking somewhat, you can park further away and walk to the stadium. If you’re willing to do this, you can find parking for considerably cheaper than you would if you park closer to the stadium—sometimes as low as $15. If you’re worried about walking and want to get there faster, you could park near a Divvy bike station and bike to the stadium, and return it at a stand when you get to the stadium.
