Charles River Esplanade
This 17 mile stretch of land along the banks of the Charles River is a must see on your trip, especially if you’re going in Autumn! The golden-leafed trees that line your path will make for some excellent instagrams.
Even if you’ve never heard of Fenway Park, you’ve more than likely heard of the Boston Red Sox. Fenway Park is the oldest ball park in Major League Baseball History. A tour of the stadium includes the Visitors’ Cub House, Press Room and the seats above the ‘Green Monster’. Depending on the time of year, you might even get a game in and catch the winning ball – now that would be a cool holiday souvenier!
