This year, the much-anticipated Boston Red Sox Opening Day is on Thursday, March 30. Just after 2:00pm, baseball fans will look to the mound for the first pitch in a three-game series against the Baltimore Orioles. And Fenway Park, considered our country’s most beloved ballpark, will begin another storied season.
Fenway Park opened in 1912, and much of it remains unchanged. It is one of the jewels of Major League Baseball, if not the entire sports world. For true fans of the game, a visit to this iconic ballpark is a lifelong ambition. The ambience, the Fenway Park history, and the rhythm of baseball add up to an unrivaled sporting experience, so be sure to take in a game. Whether you’re an ardent fan or a casual supporter, a day at Fenway is always memorable.
If you’re visiting Fenway Park for the first time, consider a guided tour. Over 60 minutes, you’ll learn about the oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball, from the Green Monster to the curse of the Bambino and so much more. On days when there are no home games, tours run every hour, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. On game days, the last tour starts three hours before game time. Tickets are $25 for adults and $17 for children, and can be purchased in advance.
For Boston, the Red Sox home opener is a city-wide celebration. Not only does it mark the return of baseball and hopes of a repeat of 2018 when the Red Sox won the World Series, but in our city, it’s also an unofficial welcome to spring, and the warmer days ahead. Patios come to life and beer gardens become a destination for friends to gather. One place to experience locally crafted beer is Trillium Brewing, a modern New England farmhouse-inspired brewery. It offers indoor and outdoor seating, just steps from Fenway Park.
Baseball is an institution in our city, and Boston Park Plaza, a beloved hotel near Fenway Park is the perfect home base for any baseball fan. Located just off Boston Common, our property is one block from Arlington Station and the popular T-Line (Boston’s subway). The short, 10-minute train ride to Fenway means you will be in your seats with plenty of time to soak in the spirit of this unrivaled venue.
Boston Park Plaza is so much more than a hotel. We are a Boston icon, integral to the city’s heritage. As one of the best hotels in Boston, we offer a true one-of-a-kind experience, as richly textured and profoundly memorable as Boston itself.
