Fenway is more than just a baseball park, it is a piece of Americana. It has been around for over 100 years and the recent improvements the newest owners have made have made it a great place to see a ballgame while still maintaining the old time feel. Go Red Sox! World Champions!
This is the best baseball anywhere... We have been to several games here. The best game was this summer! It was in honor of mentally handicap people. A Handicap Man came out to sing the National Anthem but he started to laugh and couldn't go on. Then the entire stadium joined in with him and sang it together. It brought tears to my eyes. It was such a moving moment! The fans make this stadium all that it is..
I've been a RedSox fan since I left my mothers womb but didn't get a chance to see Fenway in person until my eleventh birthday. Walking out of the tunnell and seeing the field for the first time was a breathtaking experience I will never forget. It's the best park in baseball. Unfortunately you won't spend less than $150 if you take your family to a game....
Teams are building new stadiums left and right, but nothing can compare to Fenway Park. The updates that the owners are doing are spectacular, but yet all of the old charm is still there. There is plenty to do before the game to keep everyone occupied. Now if I could only get tickets....
With all the big time corporate sponserships and their ultra-modern stadiums going up, It's great to see that Fenway has maintained it's traditional small-park charm. From the history of all the greats that played here, in this park that opened the same week the Titanic sank, to the year-round playoff atmosphere from the rabid Red Sox Nation, Fenway remains a staple for the baseball purist. Last season I had the opportunity to view a game from atop the Green Monster..simply awesome! If you are a baseball fan, weather you like the Sox or not, you should put that on your list of things to do before you die!
Sure, the seats are tiny, the basement area is dank, and the Sox are in the middle of a losing streak. BUT when you emerge from the underground halls and get the first glimpse of the field and the Boston skyline beyond, none of that matters. A must-see for any baseball fan in the area, but I'm preaching to the converted there. If you time your exit from the park right, you can sometimes catch the NESN announcers leaving. (I once saw Jerry Remy but as a veteran of the post-game frenzy, he kept his head down and was out of there.)
Where to start? Fenway is rich in history. From Teddy ballgame to Babe Ruth to Yaz, there are pictures everywhere and history at every corner of the park. The fans are the best in baseball and make the experience great. The ballpark franks are always a treat. They offer tours everyday which go through most of the park, even on the Green Monster. The staff is good, too. Some fans can get out of hand but the security jumps in quickly. Parking can be a pain so take the train.
What a great experience here, win or lose you go home smiling. Fenway Park is a big run down place but there is so much culture there and in the surrounding area. Its very easy to get to from the train but a big pain to drive there. Parking is expensive if you go by car. Prices here are very expensive, but if you have the money its a great time!
PROS: RED SOX
How can you pass this up. The only way would be price. It is expensive to go to a bal game here. The Red Soxs have a fantastic field of dreams. It is beautifully situated near Kenmore Square right on the trolley line. There is parking but it is pricey. The site itself is worth it if you can afford it. It is conveniently located.
This is a quintessential Boston landmark and if you can afford the tickets it's the best place in the woreld for a baseball fan-especially since the Red Sox "reversed the curse' with last years win at the World Series. An old time ball park including hot dogs, pretzles, beer and more. Not a cheap day but one well worth the money!
I had the chance to sing the national anthem with a group I am in last year and it was such a thrill to be down on the field.
Every little boys (and girls) dream.
Go if you can!!!
If you don't already know what Fenway Park is, you live under a rock. But if I must tell you, it is one of the most historic, and definitely the most charismatic baseball park in the Major Leagues. I went as a young lad, and was enthralled by the beach ball bouncing around the bleachers. What if it fell onto right field??? But somehow, it all works out ok. PS tickets are expensive.
This truly is the greatest ballpark. I have been going to Fenway Park since I was 10. I can still remember the first time I walked into the park and saw how the field was groomed perfectly and the sound of batting practice. The vendors have always been extremely nice and I do not think there is a bad seat in the house. When you go to Fenway you have to remeber it is a ballpark so food, drinks and t-shirts will be expensive.
There is nothing like an experience at fenway. People try to capture it with movies, but it is something that has to be experienced is person to get the essence and beauty of Fenway first hand. The most exspensive tickets is baseball to purchase they are worth every penny. Fenway park is a beautiful facility. The staff that includes security guards and snack attendants are very helpful. Going to Fenway you know you are going to have a great time. There are rafals and trivia questions to keep attendents entertained during innings. As well as a great opening performance as well as 7th inning stretch performance. I love Fenway Park.
This truly is the greatest ballpark. Even though it is small, it has so many great features like the green monster. Now you can even get seats above the monster. If you do go to fenway be prepared to spend some money. Like any other ballpark, the food and the t-shirts are expensive. My parents did the Fenway tour for 12.00 per person and they had a wonderful time. They were able to get on the field and learn a some history about the ballpark.
Fenway Park is THE place to see a great baseball game. Fenway is small enough to give you a great seat that's close to the field. That's the type of luxury that you can't get at larger ball parks throughout the country. The new owners of the Red Sox have taken great strides to improve on Fenway Park. This year alone, the concourses were expanded and large plasma TVs were hung so that people getting food below would be able to enjoy the game, too!
Fenway Park is an incredible place to visit, period. The Green Monster is there to greet you in left field as you walk up the ramp and see the field for the first time. There is just so much nostalgia in every part of Fenway. The food is overpriced, which is to be expected. The seats can be great or terrible, depending on how much you wish to shell out. There are on field tours available every day for $12 per person. Seeing the Sox play is always fun, but seeing the Sox play in Fenway is like a religious experience.
This is by far the nicest, most historic ballpark I have visited in all of the Majors. The fans in Boston are unlike anywhere else, and the atmosphere as soon as you enter through the turnstiles is incomparable to anywhere else. The food is expensive, and the tickets are expensive (and also near-impossible to get after March), but the experience is well worth it. Note though, that sitting in the outfield bleachers will have you staring directly into the sun for a good portion of a hot summer afternoon.
This is a definite must see for all tourists who pass through the Boston area. Home of the World Series champs The Boston Red Sox, this arena is a hit for any baseball enthusiasts. I went for one game and was not as impressed as I am not a baseball fan. The stadium is small, the food is expensive, the seats are uncomfortable, the parking situtaion is a nightmare and the restrooms are dirty and smelly. It was not a fun evening.
If you ever go to Boston during baseball season, you simply MUST take in a Red Sox game at Fenway Park. This is one of the best known ballparks in America. The seats are cramped and the food is expensive, but you can say that you saw "the Green Monster" in person. Also, be sure to find out if your view will be obstructed BEFORE purchasing tickets.
The location is excellent. You can walk, take the train, take the bus, or drive there yourself. Parking is a little expensive, of course.
PROS: part of American baseball history, great location
CONS: obstructed views, cramped seating, expensive food
Anyone who has ever been to Boston has probably seen the GreenMonster towering over the MassPike, and realizes what makes Fenway so special. Whether you are a fan or not, it's worth a trip and the money for a guided tour. So much history, coupled with delicious Fenway Franks. It doesnt get any better than this!
No baseball park in the country can compete with Historic Fenway Park. Though the oldest and smallest, and often with small seats with occasionally obstructed views, nothing can beat the history and charm of Fenway Park. Friendly Fenway Park is top of the line, has great food, a world champion team, and an unmatched atmosphere. Go to a game and you won't regret it!
People complain about its cramped seats, some of which have obstruced views, but the history of Fenway could not be duplicated by a new, cookie-cutter ballpark. The new ownership is continually adding new seats with great sight lines, and even the bleachers still provide a great view of the game at a decent face-value price. Fenway's size causes the ballpark to be sold out virtually every game, often creating a secondary market for scalpers to drive up the price of tickets. But, if you can afford it, Fenway is well-worth the price of admission.
PROS: History, the Boston Red Sox, new seats
CONS: Cramped seats, obstructed views
Fenway Park the beloved home of the Boston Red Sox. This is by far the best ballpark in the country with so much history and so many great players and fans this is an awesome park. I love fenway and have been many times and the atmosphere is just great i love watching the red sox beat the yankees here :) and would definately say that if you have not been to a game here why NOT? first off and second you definately must experience it.
Fenway Park is a historic park and truely something you must see. It is a great place to see the World Champion Sox play. It has been around so it still has the old fashion feel which I like because now a days you dont get that anymore. I love to see the Sox play there especially when its against the Yankees. They always have lots of fans there and it is great to go to on a nice day. I would say this is one thing you must go to when you are in Boston. I definately reccomend Fenway Park. It is also close to alot of other areas in Boston that are very accessible.
