After a dang good night sleep because we were so dang exhausted, we woke up with sooo much excitement because today was the day we were going to the one and only- Fenway Park. Fenway Park is truly one of my top 5 places in the whole entire world. It gives me all sorts of butterflies and chills just thinking about it. 💕
We met up with Tim and Melinda at their hotel and went to breakfast at the Prudential Tower (which is definitely a must if you are going to Boston). The Prudential Tower is a restaurant at the top of one of the tallest towers in Boston that overlooks the city a full 360 degrees so you can see out at every angle for sooo far. It is breathtakingly beautiful. The food was delicious, the people were so nice, and we enjoyed our first stop before making our way to Fenway.
As you leave the Prudential Tower and walk towards Fenway you pass one of the oldest operating fire stations in Boston, which was actually burned at one point, and is seriously beautiful. It has nothing important to it, except the fact that it was one of the first buildings and sites I got to experience on my first trip to Boston so I was overwhelmed to be there again.
Then, because I am a mean daughter-in-law and made everybody walk everywhere, we started our walk to Fenway Park. And the butterflies the whole walk were unreal. Then, you walk around the last corner and see it for the first time in all its glory brings literal tears to your eyes. It is incredible. We walked around it, we walked in shops, we walked to Yawkey Way, and soaked it all in. We got lucky again because it was supposed to be soo rainy, but as we started our Fenway Park tour the sun was out and shining and being so beautiful for us.
The Fenway Park tour is so freaking sweet. It takes you through the history and fun facts of Fenway. You get to see so many different angles of the field that you normally wouldn’t be able to see if you were just going to a game. You even get to go up on the Green Monster!! 😍
After the tour we are a little snack/light dinner at the classic Cask’n Flaggon right outside of Fenway. It is one of the only restaurants that has been there almost as long as Fenway has, and it was delicious! After dinner we went into the game as soon as the gates opened and sat there soaking it all up. The game was incredible. I secretly cried to myself when the played Sweet Caroline in the 8th inning because it’s my favorite part. But, the game was incredible, even though they lost. 🙃 We left Fenway that day with our hearts in the clouds. It couldn’t have been a more perfect day. It was amazing. It was breathtaking. It was fun. We got to watch the Red Sox at Fenway Park and we couldn’t have been more like little kids on Christmas morning. In fact, my favorite quote of the day from Tim was,
“Walking into Fenway the first time was almost the walking into the temple. It was truly a spiritual experience.”
