Fenway’s Main Attractions
Dubbed “America’s Most Beloved Ballpark,” Fenway Park is home to Boston’s Red Sox. It has a past rich with iconic moments in baseball history. If you want to stand where great stars like Williams, Yaz, Fisk and Rice have stood, visit the Fenway Park Living Museum. Boasting a collection of over 170,000 artifacts related to the history of Fenway Park, this is a must-see for any Red Sox fan. Choose a guided tour to get the inside scoop!
Museum of Fine Arts & Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum
Together, these two museums hold the most exquisite art collections in Boston. What’s more, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum has a courtyard and gardens that are carefully maintained to offer a beautiful landscape year round (though winter is particularly magical!).
Fenway Summer Concerts
Each year, the Fenway Summer Concerts bring to Boston some of the best contemporary and classic artists in the world. Whether you want to see the latest pop celebrity or an oldie but goodie show, this beloved summer tradition never disappoints.
Listen to the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Boston Pops orchestra at this majestic theater. Boston Symphony Hall was inaugurated in 1900 with a gala led by music director Wilhelm Gericke. It was designed to create some of the best acoustics in the world.
Back Bay Fens
Get your dose of nature at Back Bay Fens. This park was established in 1879 and since then, it has slowly been transformed into one of Boston’s top green spots. With community gardens, the Kelleher Rose Garden, World War II, Korean and Vietnam War memorials, ball fields, and the Fenway Victory Gardens, this is a great alternative to Boston Common and Boston Public Garden.
