Located in the bustling city of Boston MA, Fenway Park is the home of the Boston Red Sox. It has a capacity of approximately 37,000 people, and about 3 million fans a year enjoy a game in its stands. Fenway also hosts other sporting and cultural events such as concerts, football games, and political campaigns.

The food choices at Fenway are quite varied and offer more then you’d find at your average ballpark. Boston’s location on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean means clam chowder is top on the menu and makes the lobster roll one of Fenway’s top food favorites. You can also of course find the ballpark staples of hot dogs, burgers, and peanuts, as well as ice cream sundaes served in mini Red Sox helmets. With food vendors located all over the concourse, as well as traveling vendors who will come right to your seat, you’re sure to find something to satisfy every craving.

Ticket prices at Fenway reflect its rich history and spectacular location in the heart of Boston. Having some of the highest priced tickets in major league baseball, Fenway is an icon whose draw reaches globally as it is one of the most recognized sports stadiums in the world.

For those looking to gain a unique perspective of Fenway Park, reasonably priced tours are offered year-round on a first come, first served basis. Departing at the top of each hour, the 60 minute guided tour takes you around the ballpark and through the players and stadiums history. On a game day, you can choose a batting practice tour which not only gets you into the ballpark 3 hours before game time, but it also takes you up the iconic Green Monster where you might be able to catch a practice ball.

When traveling to Fenway, it’s important to note that the driving and parking situation is quintessential Boston. Which means it’s highly suggested that you park at one of the T stations on your way into the city and take the subway to the ballpark. Fenway is located off of the Green Line, just a short walk around the corner from the Kenmore T station.

The history and prestige of Fenway has to be its biggest draw beyond the events that are held there, but its ambiance and class is what truly makes this ballpark unforgettable. There is a unique feeling to this old stadium, where a little piece of history is still being made each day.
