fenway park tour

As you can see, we’re really embracing our time in Boston by playing tourists every chance we get. And what’s sightseeing without a Fenway Park tour?

Our best man stayed with us a few weekends ago and since he’s a big baseball fan (the Braves, but that’s OK) we scheduled a tour in the famous park. Unlike other baseball park tours we’ve taken, this one was packed! — but a bunch of Florida State fans were also in town for the football game. I know, because my husband forced me to go… yay… Noles.

My favorite part was the view of the city from the park. It was such a contrast from the green color of the stadium (and Green Monster). We also felt important in the press box as a tour guide told us some fun facts about the Red Sox. ;)

And of course, this is the red seat in the right field showing the longest home run ever hit into the bleachers.

Even though our group was large and the tour felt self-guided because of this, we learned a lot and, I mean, it’s Fenway Park. You have to go.

Have you ever been to Fenway?

    As silly as this sounds it never occurred to me that you could do tours of baseball stadiums and it sounds really fun1

    Boston fans are CRAZY! They take baseball to a whole other level. When we were in Boston we were trying to get on the subway while everyone was trying to get to a game… it was pure mania! So cool that you guys were able to take a tour… such an epic stadium :)

    Love these photos! I didn’t know you could tour the stadiums like that. Neat!

  • Amanda @ Adventure Year

    My boyfriend wants to go on a tour of the ballparks in the US. Even though we’re Phillies fans, I accept the fact that this post is really cool. We’re no good anyway. ;) Glad to see you’re having a great time!

    I’m not a huge baseball fan (uhm…am I even American?) but I’d still love to see Fenway Park!

  • Casey C

    I’ve got a friend who’s a major Red Sox fan and would probably crap his pants to be able to tour Fenway. Looks like a fun tour!

  • Jessa Olson

    So so so jealous of you. I’m glad that you had a blast. You have done so many fun things while in boston!

  • Jess

    I’m a die hard braves fan too! I will have to add a fenway park tour to my list of things to do whenever i get a chance to visit boston. i love when ballparks are in the middle of downtown, it makes for a great view.

  • Steph Gregerson

    We LOVED the tour at Fenway. I love your picture of the red seat. I can’t wait to get back to Boston once we’re living on the east coast. It’s one of my favorite cities.

    This is amazing! I’ve been to Fenway a few times for games, but never done the tour! Looks like something I’ll need to invest in :] My fun fact: the first game I went to, I sat RIGHT behind the red chair! So close!

    The next time I’m in Massachusetts (sometime early next year… YAY!), I’m going on this tour!

    Recently I was really, really low on cash and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money.. on the internet. I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills!! I’m so glad, I did this!! – iaqm

    I did this tour a few years ago, but I really can’t remember heading into the press box, that’s pretty cool!
