Boston is a sports city, and stepping foot in it will prove it. From the Celtics and the Red Sox to the Patriots and the Bruins, the city shows its home team pride all year long. Whether you’re a New England native or just visiting, catching a game in town is a fun way to unwind while on vacation or in between business meetings. We’ve pulled together a little guide to get you up to speed with Boston sports.
The Red Sox, if you don’t know, are Boston’s beloved baseball team. With a rich history and culture, Fenway Park stadium is both a historic relic and beloved building in the city. Fenway has plenty of bars and restaurants and is a great nightlife spot. Bring your sunscreen, pack your hat, brush up on your “Sweet Caroline” lyrics, and leave all Yankees memorabilia and clothing at home. The regular season lasts from spring to fall, so if you’re in town then make sure you catch a game.
If basketball is more your speed, the Boston Celtics are one of the best in the league. The NBA team’s home is TD Garden, New England’s largest multi-purpose arena, located in the north area of Boston. Grab your green gear and get ready to scream — Celtics games are a great place to bring family, friends, or clients you’re looking to entertain.
The New England Patriots football team have their home at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Located about 20 miles outside of the city of Boston, Patriots games attract a rowdy and excitable crowd. Be sure to get there early and join in for the tailgating fun.
No matter who you go with to the game, who wins, or if the weather is rain or shine, there is one thing you can definitely rely on: Boston traffic sucks, and it’s even worse during game time. Whether you’re traveling to and from the game with kids, fellow adults for a night on the town, or entertaining clients and colleagues, you can rely on GO Boston to get you to and from the game safely and comfortably, so you can focus on cheering the home team on!
