CHICAGO — Ridesharing giant Uber released its list of the most “Uber-ed To” places in each state over the past year, and Wrigley Field came in on top in Illinois.

It’s no surprise that Cubs fans venture to Wrigley Field in droves, filling Metra trains, El cars, and buses, but unlike mass transit options, Uber charges users a higher surge fare during busy periods. So that’s one thing to keep in mind if you plan to see the Cubs play at the Friendly Confines.

Uber released the ranking of the top destination in each state Tuesday, excluding airports and major transit stations. Quite a few other ballparks made the list, while rest are mostly malls, casinos, bars, tourist favorites and performance venues. You can see the full list below.

According to Uber, the most popular time for people to take an Uber in the U.S. was Saturday nights at 11 p.m., and the most Ubers were taken on the Saturday of Halloween. In Chicago Halloween Saturday actually came in second to March 11- St. Patrick’s Day.

Here’s Uber’s list of the top destinations in 2017, excluding airports and transit stations.
