Boston is a sports town, there’s no doubt about it. Going to a Patriots, Celtics or Bruins game can be great time, but if you want the real experience, you have to head over to Fenway Park to watch the Red Sox in action. If it’s your first visit to Boston , plan on heading there in the Spring while the weather is getting nicer and the baseball season is still early so it’s slightly easier to score tickets.
Fenway Park baseball tickets
Tickets are not easy to get and do not come cheap for a Red Sox game. You can try to order tickets online but may not have a whole lot of success. One way, if you’re flexible and willing to take a risk, is to try going online about 3 hours before the game. Season pass holders may release their tickets at the last minute, allowing you to grab some incredible seats at face value rather than getting screwed and grossly overpaying a scalper or ticket agency.
Go to the park early
Particularly on nicer days, the area around Fenway is lively with a fired up crowd who is ready to party. Lansdowne street is always filled with sausage vendors and people milling about getting ready to head into the park, trying to get their fill of beers and food before they head inside where prices are exorbitant. The atmosphere is great, even if you’re not going into the game.
Bars around Fenway
There are ton of bars encircling the stadium, many of which are over priced and over crowded. They’re still fun. The Cask n Flagon is a bit of a Fenway staple, having been around for quite some time and always with a rowdy, ready-for-anything crowd. You can also head into Game On where the TVs are incredible and the entire bar was built for watching a baseball game. If you’re not going into the park, head to Bleacher Bar where there is actually a window onto the field where you can see the action live from within bar. Who’s On First may not the be the classiest joint, but it is also within the confines of the stadium area so you get the same level of excitement as you would in seats within the park.
