Stand where the Cubs last won the World Series (without needing a ticket)
Is this the year the Cubbies finally go all the way? According to Vegas, the Cubs (yes, the Cubs) are 4-1 favorites to win the World Series in 2016. But even if for some crazy reason that doesn’t happen (what could possibly go wrong?), you can still relive the Cubbies 1908 glory, which took place at West Side Park -- remember, the Friendly Confines of Wrigley had yet to be built -- and is now the site of the UIC Medical Center at Taylor and Wood. The best part? No bleacher bums will be around to spill their beer on you. Probably.
