Strange Places: Fenway Park and Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

The last time I visited home for a wedding in 2015, I was able to stay in Boston for two days as a mini anniversary trip with my husband. Since it was a short stay, we decided to pick two places that we could visit in one day. Eventually we settled on touring Fenway Park, and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. 

Although we have both have been fans of the Red Soxs long before their against the odds journey to win thier first World Series in 86 years in 2004, we had never toured Fenway before. More then just the home of the Red Soxs, Fenway Park is a historic landmark that opened in 1912, and has been operating ever since. It is the oldest ballpark currently in The MLB. The tour offers a detailed history of Fenway and the Red Sox as a team, and fantastic views of the city and the park. To plan your visit, go to http://boston.redsox.mlb.com/bos/ballpark/tour.jsp

Nearby is the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, named after the woman who spent her life collecting the art within it, and commissioned the unique building it is housed in. Isabella Stewart Gardner
