Every spring, tens of thousands of cheering fans gather together to watch their favorite baseball team on Opening Day.

Red Sox Nation Loves Fenway Park

Picture 42While Fenway Park may be known as one of the smallest stadiums in the major leagues and the oldest major league stadium in current use, it also may be the one with the most history. Originally opened in 1912 in Kenmore Square, the home of the Boston Red Sox has been revamped and expanded in later years to include the Green Monster, the 37-foot-high left-field wall, right field roof, clubhouse with upscale dining and even dugout seating. While there has been talk of replacing the old wooden seats with newer more comfortable ones, die hard fans have continuously voted against the upgrades to preserve the history it is so well known for. Be sure to get your tickets as soon as they go on sale for the season as every game has sold out since May 15, 2003. The whole experience is steeped in tradition – from Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” being sung by fans during the eighth inning, the manual scoreboard to the organ to the Boston-accented hecklers.

Insider’s Tip: Remember, Massachusetts liquor laws are strict; beer vendors do not wander the stands, so you’ll have to get your brew yourself. And bring ID, even if you haven’t needed it in years. Daytime tours of the stadium are also available; see the website for more information. In the summer months, don’t miss the star-studded concerts held here (past performances include The Rolling Stones, The Police and The Dave Matthews Band).
