Fenway Park

My husband was really excited to see historic Fenway, home of the World Champion Red Sox. We ordered tickets ahead of time from a broker and paid through the teeth for them. It was worth it though. (If you’d like, you can also scalp tickets from plenty of people from the subway exit to the ballpark entrance.) It was an easy and fun ride on the subway to get to Fenway. ,P>The atmosphere before a game is electric. People jam Yawkey Way, the street adjacent to the ballpark, to DRINK and EAT! These are die-hard fans who have supported their team through generations of losing. Although we're Cleveland Indians fans, we're happy for the Boston folks!

Our seats were in the Grandstand. I wouldn't sit there again. The rows of seats are LONG, which means much standing up as people file by on their way for drinks/restrooms, etc. The chairs were old wooden things that were so uncomfortable. Next time, we'll sit in the Loge section.

If you're a sports fan, you owe it to yourself to add Fenway to your life's list of ballparks.
