Boston 2013 | Sports

On our first full day in Boston, we rented a car and headed straight for Foxborough.  Our original plan was that once we landed from our flight (the night before,) we would head straight to the Thursday night game versus the New York Jets.  That didn't work out, which may have been a blessing because we watched the game from our hotel room and a thunderstorm drenched that area.  Anyhoo, the next day had clear skies and perfect weather and not awful crowds.  It couldn't compete with game day, but we had fun roaming the stadium nonetheless.

The end of the Freedom Trail stopped near TD Garden, home of the Boston Celtics and Boston Bruins.  As a basketball fan, specifically a Laker fan, we were treading enemy territory.  But it didn't mean we were going to miss a photo opportunity at what is quite possibly my favorite basketball arena (love the parquet floors.)  The Boston Bruins were also holding an open practice for all the fans to come down and watch.  We definitely have to make another visit during basketball season to catch a Celtics game.

To be honest with you, the 1 thing I was most excited about on our trip to Boston was the Red Sox game we would attend on the last night of our trip.  Not only have I wanted to visit Fenway Park, but the Red Sox were playing the Yankees that evening.  You can't get any better than that.  Anyhoo, the game was an 8:05p start, which is much later than the games we're used to attending, but that didn't stop us from spending our entire afternoon there.  We were such tourists, taking pictures literally in front of every memorabilia spot there was.  The park itself is much smaller than what we're used to here in southern California (our home team are the Los Angeles Angels) but that didn't take away from the fun.  So fun, my husband and I ended up purchasing souvenir hats!  And we never buy souvenirs!
