• Fenway Park (exterior only)
• Victory Gardens
• Back Bay Fens


Millions of fans come to Fenway Park each year to catch a Red Sox game, but relatively few of them explore much beyond nearby Lansdowne Street. The Fenway neighborhood includes a wealth of gems and captivating corners, including the nearby Fens, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the noted landscape architect. On this 90 minute tour, we’ll learn about how the Fens were created, talk about the neighborhood’s history and development, and of course, talk a bit about Fenway Park and Red Sox lore. Along the way, we’ll also get a chance to walk by the Museum of Fine Arts and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.


This tour is led by Max Grinnell, college professor and Boston author.
