Go to a Red Sox game. Museum of fine art. picnic on the commmon, ride the swans and check out some of our historical tours, but a self guided one.
Fenway Park is a historical monument in its own right.
Go watch the Boston Red Sox...
Go watch the Boston Red Sox play baseball if it's the season. If you can, watch the Yankees play when they come to town.
Try sitting in the bleachers by right field. Lots of homeruns, good conversations, can get a bit rowdy. Expect 'Yankees Suck!' chants even if the Yanks are not playing that day. Bostonians love their Sox and the games are always packed. A definite must go for one or the family!
The Yankees' greatest rival, the Boston Red Sox call Fenway their home. This is truly hallowed ground for a true baseball fan. It's one of the oldest parks in baseball and is very unique in its design with its famous 'green monster' (enormous wall in left field) and its oddly shaped outfield perimeter. I checked the Red Sox schedule a few weeks before I came to Boston hoping they'd be in town, but unfortunately they were playing a three game series in New York! This photo was taken from the Prudential Skywalk without a zoom lens so you'll have to click on it to really see the stadium.
Fenway Park. If you are a...
Fenway Park. If you are a baseball fan, you need no further beckoning to see Fenway. Even if you're not a baseball fan, it is still worthwhile to take in a Red Sox game. Here's why: A game at Fenway is as much a cultural experience as it is a sporting event. Fenway is the oldest Baseball Park in the major leagues, built in the middle of a honest-to-goodness neighborhood. The streets close on game day, giving vendors room to set up shop as fans fill the streets. Take my advice and buy a bag of fresh-roasted peanuts before you enter the park. Inside the park, you will be cramped, crowded, and warm. You will also be looking at the field where Babe Ruth pitched, where Ted Williams hit .400, and where Carlton Fisk waved his famous home run fair. You will also be surrounded by knowlegdeable, compassionate fans (in contrast to most 21st century corporate sports crowds). The Red Sox a part of Boston's social fabric and, hence, are a must see in this city.
Fenway Park supposedly remains, much like it did the day it opened on April 20, 1912. We enjoyed a tour of the stadium.
