The whole family is heading up to Boston for our annual family vacation. And I just might bring my oldest son out to Fenway to catch a game. I've been to Fenway and Boston plenty of times, but my eldest has only seen Comiskey and Comiskey II.

If you can't take in a game, at least take the park tour

I'll be there.

Question for you, Fenway. Is it possible to access the main concourse from the bleachers, or is it seperated, like at Yankee Stadium?

Boston sucks :D: Just kidding. Boston is one of my fav cities.


I was going to go to Boston this year. I just did not have enough time. I would love to go to the Kowloon. Have not been there in a few years.

I think the double decker bus is more bang for your buck. You can get on and off all day. You can pick it up by Boston Common/City hall. I think right off of Tremont.

take your picture outside but don't bother going in

JFK Museum is great

one hint buy the 1 week subway pass for $15, it beats the one day price of $11....Boston is not a city you want to drive in

Alot of my family is planning on going. I declined because I've already been to 7 different MLB parks this year, and it probably wouldn't be financially responsible to make it 8

Bleachers and lower concourse are connected, you just can't get into the upper deck/green monster. Kinda like the cell.

Bostonians love Chinese food and the Kowloon is the mothership. I love that place.

Back in the late 80's I took Jerry Holtzman of the Trib to another Boston food place, the infamous Kelly's in Revere. He was in heaven as they have the best toasted clam rolls

I went to Boston for the first time about 2 years ago and got the tour. It was amazing we got to go up in the Green Monster seats, sit down the 3rd base line. It was a great experience and I always wanted to go their. Now Boston is one of my favorite cities to go to.

I sat in the CF Bleachers last Labor Day Monday. (Carlos Pena Walk-off). Had a great time talking to both White Sox fans and Red Sox fans. Caught a Jermaine Dye bp foul ball, ate a great italian sausage and a fenway frank and got choked by "Wally the Green Monster". Great Time. Went to the Cask and Flagon for a couple beers afterwards. Also did the Duck Tours (departed from the Science Museum) and the Sam Adams Brewery Tour. If you are a beer fan, definately try anything from the Harpoon Brewing Co. if you have a chance....also grab an Oyster Roll at Ye Olde Union Oyster House, though I've heard there are better less expensive Oyster and Lobster Rolls elsewhere....I'll be in Boston the weekend of 7/27-29....if anybody knows where to get a good Oyster Roll or Lobster Roll let me know......

I know the people that own the Kowloon. At least one of the family members. Andy is awesome. I go there everytime I am in town. Eat a lot and for free. If you are ever in there and you see a small little loud mouth guy in a Yankees hat that is my Uncle Phil. He owns two sports stores called Sports World. One is by Fenway and one is in Everett. His new store Sports World is right by the Kowloon.

He was on the radio the other day....he really has great stuff

He tells the story on how John Henry Williams came in screaming he was selling forged stuff from his Dad.....Phil calls the police.

Phil had bought the stuff from John Henry

You clearly missed out one of the best restaurants.

My Dad and I will be in town Fri-Sun. We decided to splurge on really good seats just for Saturday's game rather than paying less and maybe seeing 2 games.

Seems like a good decision now that we can probably find better entertainment outside the park! :tongue:

I'm really excited to see a game at Fenway, my first time to Boston and my first and only White Sox game of the year!

Anyone have the projected pitching matchups?

I was thinking Beuhrle, Garland, Vazquez for us?

problem solved for now

http://www.boston.com/business/ticker/2007/07/round_1_duck_be.html
The Maine-based business, which operates locally out of Charlestown, has received a federal court order to stop using the words "duck tours" or its cartoon duck logo in the Boston area because they are confusingly similar to the name and logo of a 13-year-old rival firm.

I'll be there.

Question for you, Fenway. Is it possible to access the main concourse from the bleachers, or is it seperated, like at Yankee Stadium?

Yes. The first day the park was opened under new ownership they were walking around and saw the gate closed as it had been forever. They ordered it opened.

Boston is my second favorite city behind Chicago. I would strongly encourage everyone to go their at some point for at least 5 days, if not a full week. Also, stay downtown, or somewhere off of a T stop. You don't want to drive with as easy as it is to take the T. For parking, when I was there, I parked my car at the end of one of the T lines in the suburbs and just rode the T in to the city where I was staying. I paid like $3 a day and just left it there instead of whatever ridiculous price it is to park in the city. On the other hand, it wasn't exactly as secure as a parking garage.

I went to Boston 2 years ago for my sons hockey tournament and we got a tour at Fenway and it was amazing. We got to go up in the monster seats go into the 3rd base dougout. Afterwards we went to this restuarant down the street from Fenway in which we went down in like the basement area of the restuarant and they were saying that the field was like directly above this place and they were going to open it up or something to watch the game for the restuarant. It was really cool. Anyway I am going to Boston this week.

My first time in boston,30 years ago,i was robbed at gunpoint right downtown.It seems funny now.
My last trip,I remember being appalled going to Fenway as we were jammed in there like cattle but I have fond memories of the place and i have been there many time(lived in Hull for a time).
My daughter who lives near Framingham,will be there this weekend.

If you want the best seafood CHEAP trust me on this one

The No-Name Restaurant
Boston Fish Pier
Northern Avenue
Boston
617-423-2705
The No-Name is a Boston legend when it comes to fresh fish, served inexpensively. Even the name has a rich history. Originally the restaurant had only eleven seats and a tiny kitchen that served up whatever came in on the boats. The place was not much to look at, but the food was as fresh as it gets. Soon the restaurant's reputation spread, and folks outside the fishing community wanted a taste. There was one problem: the restaurant had no name. People just called it the no-name. Today, officially, the No-Name it remains.

Boston is high on my list of towns to visit but going to a Red Sox game never really registers for some reason.
