The "Big 4" - Boston's Famous Sports Teams 

Walk down any street in Boston, and you'll quickly see we're a huge sports town - just look at how we're dressed. 

According to a recent survey, the average Bostonian's wardrobe includes at least 5 articles of sports insignia clothing.  You'll think the number's even higher when you see all the Red Sox caps, Bruins hoodies, and Patriots jerseys being worn around the city.

Our Boston sports culture adds to the fun. 

By culture (we pronounce that "culchah"), I mean all the sports bars near Fenway Park, the Garden, and Gillette . . . our famous Fenway Franks that perfume the streets around the stadium . . . over-the-edge tailgate parties in Gillette's parking lot where fans boil whole lobsters, grill steaks, and chow down on huge pots of chili.

So get ready for your visit by getting some Boston sports gear:

Where to See Boston Sports Teams Play

Fenway Park

Fenway Park in Boston / Boston Sports - www.boston-discovery-guide.comBuilt for the Boston Red Sox in 1912, Fenway Park is famous for its "Green Monster."   The Red Sox play all their home games at Fenway.

When the Sox are away, Fenway sometimes stages big-name concerts, like Paul McCartney.  And in 2010, for the first time ever, Boston hosted NHL's Winter Classic at Fenway, transformed into an ice rink for the occasion.

Even if you can't go to a game or concert, go for a Fenway Park tour.  Fenway's in-town location makes it easy to reach on foot, by subway, or commuter rail.  If you're coming for the weekend, check out hotels near Fenway Park.

 

TD Garden

TD Garden, photographed from Charlestown / Boston Sports - www.boston-discovery-guide.comTD Garden is Boston's state-of-the-art sports arena / entertainment complex. 

Home to the Celtics, Bruins, and Blazers, TD Garden is where you can also see concerts, performances such as "Disney on Ice," political speeches, wrestling and other sports events, and even the circus.

TD Garden replaces the old Boston Garden, and you'll hear both of them referred to as simply "the Garden" - not to be confused with the Public Garden, the Victorian-era park filled with flower gardens across from Boston Common.

Find hotels near the Garden.

 

Gillette Stadium

Gillette Stadium in Foxboro / Boston Sports - www.boston-discovery-guide.com

Not surprisingly, Gillette Stadium is home to the Patriots and the Revolution.  It is also the site of occasional mega-star concerts, such as U2 and Bon Jovi.
