East Museum Parking
This surface parking area offers additional parking close to the North Garage with the entrance located on Museum Campus Drive. The East Museum lot has one flat rate for up to 12 hours of parking: $30. The lot is open 9 AM to 3 PM; guests can leave after closing hours, but overnight parking is prohibited in all Museum Campus parking lots.
Waldron Parking Garage
Situated just south of Soldier Field, this double-deck garage provides 1500 parking spaces for people visiting Soldier Field or the Sledding Hill. The rate is $25 for non-major Soldier Field events but can increase significantly for significant events.
This day parking structure is south of the Waldron parking deck, and it serves events at Soldier Field, as well as McCormick Place and Burnham Harbor. The rate starts at $25 for selected Soldier Field and McCormick Place events, but it’s subject to change.
Visitors to the Adler Planetarium and Northerly Island’s Lakefront Pavilion will love the convenience of this surface car park on Lynn White Drive. It’s perfect for RVs, campers, and buses. Chicago Bears fans can park their standard-sized vehicles for just $50, while oversized vehicles are only $155.
Millenium parking garages and McCormick Place lots are the most popular alternatives. While 18th Street Lot offers $60 pre-paid parking, these two options are more convenient and more affordable.
For those headed to a Chicago Bears game, we recommend the Millennium garages because of their convenient location with a free shuttle that picks up at lower Randolph. Check out the parking prices for all Bears football games.
- On the day of the game: $38
- Online, pre-paid rate: $20-$31
- Season Pass: $316.50
Two parking areas offer game-day cash parking: 31st Street McCormick Place Lot B and Lakeside Garage Lot C. The first one provides shuttle services, while the second lot doesn’t. Chicago Bears parking rates vary from $35 to $40 on the day of the game, while pre-paid parking at Lot B is $50. Lot B also allows tailgating. Check out our full guide to McCormick Place Parking for additional info.
ADA parking stalls are available in each Soldier Field car park. If you don’t have a pre-paid parking coupon for Chicago Bears parking, head to the McCormick Place Lot B or any Millennium Park garage. They are serviced by free ADA shuttles that make stops at Soldier Field Gate 14. Standard parking rates apply for Soldier Field handicap parking.
Arriving at the parking lot before a Bears game on a beautiful morning is an exhilarating part of the gameday experience. All outdoor lots, like the Adler Planetarium Lot, Southwest Parking Facilities, and upper level of the Waldron Deck, offer tailgating opportunities. Remember that alcohol isn’t allowed in Family Friendly lots. With big crowds expected, it’s crucial to arrive early without a parking pass.
