In the heart of the action
Some die-hard Sox fanatics would argue that downtown Boston is not where the true spirit of this city lies. In fact, many claim the Fenway/Kenmore area is just as exciting and innovative as any other part of Boston. Although it’s a little farther out on the subway, travelers who are visiting will not have to even leave Fenway to see some wonderful attractions and sporting events. When it comes to accommodations, there’s elegant hotels only steps from the ballpark, as well as smaller boutiques, bed and breakfasts and even charming chains. These can be found at Fenway, or tucked in along the rows of beautiful brownstones. The hotels are managed by die-hard locals who are happy to point you in the right direction around Fenway and back towards Boston’s downtown area, only a few minutes away. Many of Boston’s galas, charity events and trendy nightlife-seekers spend time at the swanky hotel bars and lounges. Those traveling on a budget can consider some of the hostels and wallet-friendly options that are geared toward the large student population.
