Boston Red Sox Fenway Park Tour
Fenway Park is one of the most popular destinations for families visiting Boston. Growing up in Massachusetts, I spent a lot of time at Fenway Park and made some of my most cherished childhood memories there. Ever since I became a mom, I have been dying to take Ella on her first trip to Fenway. She was still a little young for a Red Sox game during our trip to Boston so I decided to take her on a Fenway Park tour instead! Here’s everything you need to know about taking your little ones on a Fenway Park Tour:
One of the best ways to experience Fenway Park with kids is by taking them on a Fenway Park tour. Tours are a great option for kids because they give your little ones the feel of Fenway without having to endure a 4 hour baseball game. Ella was one when we went on our tour and it was the perfect way for her to experience the ballpark for the first time. Fenway Park tours are offered year round and range from 15 minutes to 60 minutes in length. Ella and I went on the popular 60 minute Public Tour.
Our tour began down on the field where a professional photographer took our family photo. I was really excited about this because family photos are my favorite way capture special memories. All moms know that it can be super difficult to get a photo that includes everyone so it was awesome to have a professional photographer available. One of the things I love the most about the photo they took was it was dated. It is really neat to be able to look back on this photo and know exactly when it was taken.
After having our family photo taken we moved up the stairs where we met with our tour guide. Each tour is led by an experienced tour guide who shares the incredible history of Fenway Park! Did you know Fenway Park is Major League Baseball’s oldest active ball park? Fenway Park is over 100 years old and is actually listed on the National Register of Historic Places.. that means Fenway isn’t going anywhere! It is pretty crazy to think that the ballpark my great grandpa visited years ago will be the exact same ballpark my future great grandchildren visit!
As the tour guide shares the history of “America’s Most Beloved Ballpark” they take you on a walking tour of Fenway’s famous locations. Some of the most popular locations featured in the Fenway Park tour are Yawkey Way, Pesky’s Pole, the infamous “Red seat” and of course the Green Monster! It is so much fun for kids to explore the ballpark as they learn all about the history that has been made there. Ella loved being able to sit in the old wooden Fenway Park seats. It was so cute watching her look in awe at the ballpark that I love so much! One of our favorite parts of the tour was when we were able to stand on top of the Green Monster. Talk about the perfect view of Fenway Park!
Fenway Park is such a fun and exciting place for all members of the family to enjoy! Whether you are a die hard baseball fan or simply visiting the Boston area, I highly recommend adding a Fenway Park Tour to your itinerary. Thanks for reading!
