No trip to Boston is complete without a visit to Fenway Park. Set in the backdrop of Kenmore Square, Fenway Park opened in 1912 and is the oldest active ballpark in baseball history. Despite having the fourth-smallest seating capacity at just north of 37,000, Fenway Park is one of the most exciting, heart-throbbing, and endearing sports stadiums in the world.
Although the stadium lacks the bells and whistles of more modern parks, nothing can beat the atmosphere at Fenway. From witnessing a ball rebounding off the Green Monster, to singing Sweet Caroline during the 7th inning stretch to eating a Fenway frank, a visit to the ballpark is a must-do for any baseball fan's bucket list.
Visiting Fenway Park
Although it is always more fun to attend a game during baseball season, Fenway Park remains open for tours throughout the year. One-hour walking tours are held Monday-Friday from 10 AM to 5 PM and include a tour of the park, a visit to the legendary Green Monster, and the chance to walk on the outfield grass.
With summer fast approaching, the baseball season is just starting to warm up with many of the best teams jockeying for position. Tickets for Red Sox games can be a challenge to find; however, seats are always available through secondary ticket vendors. With these sources, though, be prepared to shell out more cash than the face value of the ticket to attend a game.
On the day of the game, be sure to give yourself plenty of time to arrive at the stadium. In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing, security at Fenway Park has been ramped up. Because parking can be a challenge in Boston, particularly near Fenway Park, it is always best to take public transportation. Hop on a Green Line train towards Boston College and get off at the Kenmore Station, just steps from the stadium. There are a multitude of hotels near Fenway Park for any fans who wish to spend more than one day exploring Boston.
