Massachusetts, Boston Guide (B): Celebrating the Red Sox on a Fenway Park Tour

Celebrating the Red Sox on a Fenway Park Tour
From looking at me, you probably wouldn’t assume I like sports. And you’d be right. I’m more music and art than I am a balls and bats. I’ve been to more countries than I have sporting events. But I do like learning a little bit about the local culture, and if the local culture is fanatical about their sports, that can be fun, too. And there’s almost no culture more fanatical about sports than the people of Boston. So on a visit to Boston, I recommend taking a Fenway Park tour to learn a little bit more about the Red Sox and their historic ballpark.

Doing a Fenway Park tour didn’t even occur to me until the third time I went to Boston, because I think baseball is the most boring sport. But my second time in Boston happened to be in 2013, the last time the Boston Red Sox won a World Series. I was with a friend who actually likes baseball (for some reason), when we realized that the Red Sox would be playing two playoff games at home during our trip. So we knew we had to go.

Our first idea was to go to Bleacher Bar whichis part of the park complex and has an actual view of the field by way of anentire section of the wall under the ballpark bleachers. Of course, the areadirectly in front of the viewing section was packed, by fans undoubtedly moreinvested than we were. But Bleacher Bar is worthwhile in and of itself. Theyhave seriously incredible sandwiches, and of course, beer.
