Whether you catch a Red Sox game or are visiting for a tour, America’s Most Beloved Ballpark is a great place to visit.
Setting out an hour before the first pitch is thrown to walk to Fenway was a great experience. Seeing everyone else in the neighborhood with their Red Sox jersey’s and ball caps on, walking toward the big Citgo sign made me feel like I was a part of something special.
Going through the gates onto Jersey Street on game-day is a magical experience. If you’re a Red Sox fan like me you’ll appreciate the smells of the sausages being fried up, the sound of the fans filing into the park, and the ring of registers at the team store.
Once you walk into the ball park you see it, the Green Monster. A huge green, 37 foot wall in left field, known by every baseball fan. The park itself just reeks a historical atmosphere. As America’s oldest ball park it is definitely somewhere you stand for a second in awe, knowing that so many greats have played there. Ted Williams, Carl Yastrzemski, Wade Boggs, David Ortiz all played on the hollowed ground.
Apart from the great history, Fenway offers many great snacks and beverages during the game. One everybody has to try is the Fenway Park Lobster Roll, it’s pricey but very tasty. Although eating in the Park is always fun, there is the option of eating before going in to the game. There are many great vendors outside of Fenway selling many great treats.
The best part of my last trip to Fenway is that my wife and I were on our honeymoon. It made it so much more memorable to experience these things with her and drink, eat, and laugh with her. Fenway can be a special place for anyone, which is why I recommend visiting the most beloved ball park at least once in your life.
