Fenway Park in Boston is one of the most recognized sports venues in the world. It is also one of the symbols of Boston. So when visiting this city in Massachusetts, we couldn’t miss a game of the local Red Sox team.
Fenway Park is located near Kenmore Square in Boston. It was built in 1912 and has been the home of the Red Sox, the major American League baseball team, ever since. Fenway Park was remodelled back in 1934 and has undergone significant renovations in the previous two decades. In 2012, the park was listed on the National Register of Historic Places due to its historical significance.
However, due to this long history and limited expansion opportunities in the crowded Kenmore Square neighbourhood, the stadium is one of the smallest of its kind in the United States. Officially, it can only hold 40,000 spectators.
This size of the stadium, however, did not affect our experience in any way. On the contrary, watching the Red Sox game against the St. Louis Cardinals seemed like a very local must-do. For almost the entire game, you could sense the super high energy of the place, and it felt like being one of the local fans.
