Sure you can watch a baseball game almost anywhere, but the only spot to catch the Red Sox enjoying home field advantage is at Fenway Park, Major League Baseball's oldest ballpark. Steeped in legend and lore, games aren't just played here, history is made.
With fans so dedicated they border on obsessed, Red Sox Stadium is an icon of Boston that delivers unforgettable baseball action all summer long.
Grab a hot dog and a cold one, then get ready to cheer on the boys of summer as they swing for the Green Monster and try to avoid Pesky's Pole in their quest for another pennant run.
No visit to Boston is complete unless you grab a Red Sox game at Fenway. So pick your favorite seat close to the action or in a luxury box high above, and get ready for some fun.
Fenway Park is in the heart of the city at 4 Yawkey Way, Boston, MA 02215. And our great location near Kenmore Square in the Fenway-Kenmore neighborhood means that on game day, parking can be a challenge. If you do want to drive, you can find a list of nearby parking garages on our website. Just remember that game day street traffic backups can start up to one hour before game time, so plan ahead. By far, our favorite ways to get to the game is by public transportation. Choose from the subway, commuter light rail or bus and save your energy for cheering on your favorite team. Easy directions for getting here on all forms of public transportation can be found on the Red Sox website. We love taking the T, and it's cheap - less than $3 each way. That means more in your pocket for game time food and drinks.
What bars and restaurants are near Fenway Park?
A city as rich in heritage as Boston never makes you choose between history and fun things to do. You can usually do both, at the same time. So go ahead and take in a Red Sox game, and plan to soak up some pre- or post-game history at one of the iconic Boston bars and restaurants just steps from the ballpark
* The Green Dragon Tavern on Marshall Street came to life in 1654, making it the oldest historic bar in the city. And while it may have moved around a few times over the centuries, it made it into the history books as the "headquarters of the American Revolution" and was noted in Paul Revere's diaries as the clandestine meeting spot of revolutionary heroes. Today it's a cozy Irish Bar that serves up cold beer, cocktails, salads, sandwiches and excellent chowder.
* Just around the corner from the Green Dragon, you'll find the Bell in Hand, America's oldest continuously operating watering hole (excusing Prohibition, which doesn't count anyway). Built by Boston's last town crier, Jimmy Wilson, today the Bell houses two floors, five bars and serves pub food favorites along with ice cold beer, cocktails and wine for lunch and dinner. At night, it turns into one of Boston's most popular dance clubs, so go early if you want to soak in the historic vibes.
