Fenway Park

There's no place like Fenway. Whether you're a Red Sox fan or not, Fenway Park is a must-see. Built in 1912, it's the oldest baseball park in the country, and boasts the legendary Green Monster, which towers 37 feet in the air, threatening home run hopefuls. The manually-operated scoreboard paired with peanuts, Fenway Franks and historic fans, make this ballpark an epic timepiece. Can't make a game? Take a tour May through September. read more about Fenway Park
