Sports Enthusiast


Boston is known for its championships sports teams, and rowdy sports fans. So get in on the action and check out our professional sports teams, the Boston Red Sox, Bruins, Celtics or New England Patriots. The Red Sox play at Fenway Park, America's most beloved park and in our opinion the most beautiful. While the TD Garden is home to the Boston Celtics and the Boston Bruins as well many other sports and entertainment events.
