At Symphony Pads, we often refer to the Symphony-Fenway area as the cultural heart of Boston. When you take a closer look at the landmarks you will find in this neighborhood, it is easy to see why! From sports games to orchestra performances, read on to find just a few of the spots that make the Symphony-Fenway area so special.
Affectionately called the Green Monster by sports fans all over the state, Fenway Park is where you will find the Red Sox, the underdog baseball team of Boston. Fenway Park has been the home of the Red Sox and a destination for Massachusetts families since 1912. Be sure to catch a ball game there this spring or summer.
Behind Fenway Park is Lansdowne Street, the home of some of the best and most diverse nightclubs and music venues in the state. From the House of Blues to Bill’s Bar, there is something for every music taste along this festive stretch of sidewalk.
The other namesake of the neighborhood, Symphony Hall, is the home of the Boston Pops. Adorned with Greek and Roman statues and built in 1900, the building itself is a sight to behold, never mind the incredible classical music you can hear there.
When you see that iconic Citgo sign overhead, you know you have found bustling Kenmore Square. The Kenmore T station at this major intersection leads you to some of the best shops, restaurants, and bars in the city. But be careful trying to pass through on Patriot’s Day – You will have to get past thousands of Boston Marathon runners.
