Boston Red Sox Game Day Guide

Nothing compares to the experience of going to a Red Sox game at Fenway Park. Fenway is the oldest Major League Baseball stadium still in use today, and multiple generations of fans continue to fill its seats. As fans fill the street, the city buzzes with excitement. So when you are an outsider, and you don’t come from a long line of fans, how do you manage game day? Where do you park? What do you do before the game?

The following tips are intended to help out the rookie Red Sox fan on game day:

Transportation and Parking

If you can avoid driving yourself to a Red Sox baseball game, you should. The easiest and best way for you to get to the game is to take advantage of the Commuter Rail. Boston’s public transportation is affordable and will drop you off and pick you up close to Fenway Park. However, if you can’t avoid driving yourself to the game, take advantage of one of the lots or parking garages on the way. For details on prices and places to park, check out the official Boston Red Sox website.


Those who don’t come from a long line of Red Sox fans may not be aware that tickets to games are often sold out well in advance of game day. However, if you are looking to secure a ticket during the week of the game, you can check for tickets online at the official Red Sox website. If you have really waited until the last-minute to purchase tickets, try visiting Gate C on the day of the game two hours prior to the first pitch. If there are any tickets still available, this is where you will find them.

Before the Game

If you have been to other major league sports, you may be used to tailgating before the game; that is not the case before Red Sox games. There is no tailgating allowed. However, among the multitude of bars within walking distance of the park, the alley behind the stadium is closed off and becomes an additional food and drink area for game attendees. Although not officially a tailgate party, the alley is filled with a party-like atmosphere.

Eat and Drink

If you have spent any time in Boston, you know that there is no shortage of great places to eat and drink; the area surrounding Fenway Park is no different. If you are looking for a great place to eat ballpark favorites while not paying park prices, check out the Lower Depths Tap Room. This bar is popular among the locals as well as Boston College students and visitors. Its convenient location close to the park and reasonable prices make it a great place to eat and drink before the big game.

You may not be among the long line of generations who have attended games at Fenway Park, but with these tips, you are sure to have a great experience. So stop worrying, relax, and trust that you are ready to enjoy gameday.
