Massachusetts is the State of Sports Champions, and Boston is where you can see our professional sports teams and world-class athletes in action. First, no trip to Boston is complete without a visit to famed Fenway Park, the oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball, where the Boston Red Sox have been playing since 1912.
Next up is TD Garden, New England’s largest sports and entertainment arena and home of the storied Boston Bruins and Boston Celtics franchises. Be sure to snap a photo with the statue of hockey legend Bobby Orr on your way in, and spend some time at the TD Garden Sports Museum, which has a half-mile of exhibits spanning two floors.
From there, head to Copley Square for another photo op: running across the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Ranking as one of the world’s most prestigious road racing events, the Boston Marathon is the world’s oldest annual marathon, first run in 1897! And in the evening, rest your head at Hotel Commonwealth, the official hotel of the Red Sox, where some rooms pay tribute to Boston sports history.
For a day trip outside of Boston, head 22 miles southwest to Foxborough to tour the 68,000-seat Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots and New England Revolution. While you’re there, visit the Patriots Hall of Fame, celebrating the legendary team’s history.
