The green walls of Fenway Park have seen their share of victories. Usually, the bleachers are filled with adoring fans cheering on their home team, but you can break away from the pack and get an insider’s look at one of the most popular ballparks in the nation when you take a Fenway Park Tour. Tour guides will lead you through the iconic structure, where you’ll learn all about your favorite players and see relics from baseball games past.
Why You’ll Love the Fenway Park Tour
You have awesome options when it comes to choosing a Fenway Park tour that fits your personal needs. Each tour is led by one of Fenway Park’s Red Sox experts who are there to answer any of those questions you’ve been dying to ask.
The most popular Public Tour is an hour long, during which you’ll be made privy to all the fun facts and stats about the park and the team. Then, sit in some of the most historically significant seats in the park before heading down to the field where the magic happens. Make sure your camera’s ready as you sit atop the infamous Green Monster. Check out the press box, and then browse the team’s memorabilia, like World Series trophies and retired uniforms.
If you’re crunched for time sign up for Fenway in Fifteen. You’ll still see all the highlights, like the view from the Right Field Roof Deck, which allows you to see the entire park and beyond into the city of Boston.
If you’re lucky enough to enjoy your tour on a home game day, take the Batting Practice Tour or Day Game Premium Tour. Participants in the Batting Practice Tour get to sit in left-field, atop the Green Monster while the players practice before the game. You might even catch a ball! If you have kids, they’ll love the Day Game Premium Tour. You’ll get to take your family photo with the Red Sox mascot, Wally the Green Monster!
Large groups of 12 or more can take advantage of group options, including three different birthday packages that come with a range of extras, like batting practice in the batting cages, cake and decorations or the chance to try on official Red Sox uniforms.
What Makes the Fenway Park Tours Special?
Fenway Park is the oldest currently used baseball stadium in the nation! It first opened in 1912, and while it has gone through numerous renovations it is still the home to Red Sox history. The only other stadium that comes close in age is Wrigley Field, which held its opener in 1914.
What Else Is in the Neighborhood?
If you’re looking for a place to stay after the game check out The Verb Hotel. The hotel’s cool mid-century design combined with colorful stained glass and wall-to-wall windows add to the rock and roll vibe. Before you head to your room, stop into the House of Blues on Lansdowne for some live music and a bite to eat.
Who’ll Have the Most Fun on a Fenway Park Tour?
You don’t have to be a Red Sox fan to enjoy a tour of Fenway Park (even Yankees fans will revel the nostalgic atmosphere). If you like the sport of baseball, even a little bit, you will find the tour intriguing. Very young children may get bored, but older kids will have the best time of their life! The tours also make a great date for couples.
