This has been a huge topic lately, and hopefully this post will clarify and contain most of the information for those who are curious about where to park, or not park, at Fenway. Most of the Spahten’s that live in Boston say you should not try to park near Fenway, but that is up to you. I know I will be taking the T in, it’s not that daunting either. Maybe, just maybe, some buddies will step up and we can try to travel in together.
The obvious, and probably easiest solution, is to take the public transit, aka “The T”. Most parking garages are going to be way less $$ wise as well. Depending on where you are coming from, you may need to hop from line to line, ie. taking the red line to the green line, etc. Below I have cut and pasted a couple different snippets from the Red Sox site and the MBTA site to help get you around. I left the links active so you could click through. Hopefully this helps everyone out!
