Fall at Fenway Park

To say that Husband and I aren't into sports is a bit of an understatement. But if you're fortunate enough to be in Boston, then you have to visit the Famous Fenway Park. While we still owe ourselves the full experience of an actual game here, one complete with peanuts and cracker jack {and beer}, for today we decided to take a Tour of Fenway Park. 

Of course there is nothing like seeing a game here, but this tour was the best way for us to experience Fenway and here's why....
1.) we avoided the crowds! 
2.) we learned all about the History of Fenway
3.) our $12 tour tickets were much more wallet friendly 
than a game ticket 
Basically, we had all of perks of Fenway Park without any of the downfalls 
Having been around for more than 100 years, this iconic landmark has become a protected National Historic Site. I think the only word to describe the history of Fenway Park is quirky. Between the red seat, its rooftop urban farm, and contending with the curse of the Great Bambino---quirky describes this place best.  

the Great Bambino...Babe Ruth 
 While out and about, I received a few compliments on my wardrobe so I decided to take a few photos for an impromptu Fall OOTD in Fenway. I definitely got some weird looks. People probably thought I was a total narcissist or maybe they just thought I looked fabulous. Ha! When you're a style blogger and constantly take pictures of yourself in public, you get used to it.

All the locals know that Fenway is nicknamed The Green Monster because of the enormous green wall that protects the city from flying baseballs. 
The Green Monster also happens to have the best views of Fenway! 

  Oh hey there, it's an urban farm right inside of Fenway! 
Our tour finished up right around lunchtime, so we headed over to the aptly named Bleacher Bar. Yep, there is a bar right under the Fenway bleachers and it offers a pretty good view of the field too! 
Until recently, there was a batting cage under the center-field bleachers, but this area has now been absorbed into a bar. One of the best kept secrets in can have great views of the Red Sox game without ever buying a ticket. Just stake a claim at The Bleacher Bar {like we did} and catch everything from the players warming up to the actual game. And as Husband so kindly informed me, the men's restroom looks out directly onto the field too so you never have to miss a minute of the game. 
And we didn't thanks to this great spot. 
Overall, we had a pretty amazing Saturday at Fenway Park
