|About these ratings|
Fans of America's favorite pastime won't want to miss a game at Fenway Park. Home to the Boston Red Sox, this stadium has been the site of home runs, stolen bases and grounders since 1912. The stadium celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2012, and reflects the same jovial spirit that's attracted fans in droves throughout the 20th and 21st centuries. Regardless of whether you believe in the legendary 1919 "Curse of the Bambino" or you believe the Sox are primed to make another run for the World Series, you should try to catch a game and admire the ballpark's original architecture, including the 37-foot-tall notorious "Green Monster" wall rising over left field.
"The atmosphere during the game is one of the best around. Such a loyal fan base, and such an amazing experience. Baseball doesn't get much better than that!" raved one TripAdvisor user. But here's a note of warning: Home games sell out quickly, so you'll need to get your tickets way in advance.
If you're not in town during a home game, you might want to stop by the field for an hourlong tour, which most visitors say was worth the ticket price. Tour tickets are available on a first-come, first-serve basis at the Gate D Ticket Booth; adult tickets are priced at $16; tickets for kids ages 3 to 15 cost $12. To reach Fenway Park, take the B, C or D to the Kenmore station. The park is just a quick stroll from the station, and there are signs to point you in the right direction.
