Located in Boston, MA, Fenway Park has been the home field of the Boston Red Sox since its doors first opened way back in 1912. Since then, it has seen countless incredible sports and entertainment events that will continue to define this park's incredible history. To this day, Fenway remains one of the most cherished and admired baseball parks in the entire world.
Of course Fenway Park is best known for being the home of the legendary Red Sox, but it has also hosted soccer, football, and hockey games. There have also been quite a few high-profile concerts at Fenway, including performances by Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. There has been at least one concert at Fenway every year since 2003.
Red Sox fans are known for being some of the most dedicated and loyal fans in the country. It is no wonder that Fenway Park is so full of history, legend, and quirks. Perhaps the most famous feature at Fenway is the “Green Monster,” the left field wall. This famous wall did not earn its nickname until relatively recently, having been known as simply “The Wall” previously. It was painted its trademark green color in 1947. Today, there is terrace seating available above the wall. Grab some Red Sox tickets and experience this historic venue first hand.
Fenway's owners and fans are committed to preserving the legend and history of this important baseball relic. While there have been plenty of modern updates and upgrades, much of the stadium still holds true to the original. For example, all of the 47,500 seats in the grandstand section are completely original! Although they are smaller than today's seats at only 15 inches across, they’ve got cache, nostalgia, and tradition built in.
Getting There and Getting In
Parking & Directions
Fenway Park is located right in the heart of historical downtown Boston, at 4 Yawkey Way, Boston, MA. Boston does have excellent public transportation, so it is possible to take the train (or the “T” as it is called) into the park. Just be sure to catch the train back before it shuts down around midnight. For guests who plan to drive, keep in mind that there is usually quite a bit of congestion an hour before games. Many seasoned Fenway veterans prefer to park their cars away from the park and then either walk or take public transportation to the actual park.
While there are parking garages available near the park, they are not guaranteed to be available, and some of them are quite expensive. The park encourages fans to take public transportation to the stadium, especially for mid-week games. There is a train stop that is specifically for Fenway Park, so locating it is not difficult. Because Fenway is located in the middle of a dense city, finding metered parking for games is virtually impossible.
