Kenmore Square
Vacation Travel Guide

Kenmore Square showing street scenes

Whether you’re a Red Sox fan or not, visit this Boston neighborhood for its many museums and lively dining and nightlife scene.

Fenway-Kenmore is immortalized in sports fans’ minds as the location of Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox. While this is the neighborhood’s best-known attraction, you’ll find dozens of other things to see and do. Watch a baseball game in the historic ballpark, explore museum exhibits or catch a show at Symphony Hall.

Even if you’re not sitting in the stands, you’ll know from the activity in the area when the Red Sox are playing at Fenway Park. Get in on the action and cheer on the home team alongside Boston’s avid fans. Built in 1912, the ballpark is the oldest in U.S. Major League Baseball. Take a guided tour to learn about its history, including the team’s brilliant World Series victories after long stretches of disappointments.

Walk through 6,000 years of history at the Museum of Fine Arts. All its world-renowned exhibits are worth visiting. Don’t miss its extensive collection of ancient Egyptian mummies and the Art of the Americas wing with 53 galleries of diverse arts.

Check out more classic art in the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in a Venetian-style palazzo. Its collection features artists such as Michelangelo, Monet and Whistler.

Enjoy perfect acoustics in the stunning Symphony Hall. This historic concert hall is home to the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Boston Pops. Sit back for an evening of exceptional musical talent.

Explore Boston’s charms as you walk around Kenmore Square. Visit Lansdowne Street for its lively nightlife, especially energetic after Red Sox games. Over a dozen schools and universities, including Boston University, Northeastern University, Berklee College of Music and Harvard Medical School have a campus presence in Fenway-Kenmore.

Look for the famous CITGO sign. This classic Boston icon has been a city beacon since 1940. Note that its lights turn off after midnight, indicating it’s time to go home from Boston’s bars.

Fenway-Kenmore is a very pedestrian-friendly neighborhood. Explore it on foot. Get to the rest of Boston and beyond via the Ruggles MBTA station, which has subway, bus and commuter rail connections. Boston’s financial district and waterfront area are just a few miles away.
