Boston Fenway Park Tour Is A Must Do For Baseball Fans

When I was in Boston a few years ago with some friends I really wanted to go to a Red Sox game.  Unfortunately, there were no games during the time that I was in the city.  Even though I would have loved to go to a game I did not want to pass up the opportunity to tour Fenway Park.  My friends and I had purchased a GO Boston card which included the Fenway Park tour.  I may be an Angels fan but since I love baseball I can appreciate the history that Fenway Park has to offer.  Plus, Fever Pitch is one of my favorite Drew Barrymore movies and they filmed some scenes at the park.  Whether you are able to attend a game or not I highly recommend that baseball fans take any opportunity to tour Fenway Park.

The picture directly above was taken from the Green Monster which is located on the left side of the outfield.  Getting to sit on the Green Monster was by far one of the biggest highlights of the tour for me.  Fenway Park is full of memorabilia.  A lot of really interesting memorabilia is on display in the original ticket booths.  Each of the old ticket booths has been painted with the number of year that the Red Sox won the World Series.  I was amazed by how much there was to see throughout the stadium.  We were told about a single red seat that sits among green seats in on the right side of the outfield.  The red seat is a tribute to one of many home runs hit by Ted Williams.  I have a feeling that is a popular seat!

    How fun! I’ve only been on the outside of it, but the tour would be amazing to see the behind the scenes.

    Now that would be cool! My Dad is big into baseball, seeing games, collecting baseball cards–I’ve had a lot of fun baseball experiences with him and I know he’d love to see this place someday!

    I’m not a baseball fan, but if I ever had the chance I would visit Fenway. It really is a beautiful ball park.

    I would LOVE to do this!! Fenway is an institution and I’m envious that you were able to do this!! I have toured the University of Phoenix Stadium (where the Arizona Diamondabacks play) and the Pepsi Center (where the Colorado Avalanche play) and Fenway is on my bucket list! Thanks for the great photos!

    This is awesome and you might love baseball more than me going on a tour! I’m a diehard NY Mets fan and I will be going to Citi field for the first time this week! So awesome and I bet this was fun and yes all the history too.
    xo, Nicole

    I’m excited that you got the opportunity to go to a baseball game, sounds like you had lots of fun!

  • Liz Mays

    Those backstage tours always reward you with fun bits of trivia and lore. It sounds totally worthwhile!

  • Anosa

    Sounds like you had a great time, its a shame there wasn’t a game on when you went! Maybe next time hey?! Baseball isn’t a big sport over in the UK but I think it beats football!
