Hotel for Boston sightseeing + Red Sox game?

Jump to last reply

Hello to all! Need help with upcoming Boston trip - never been before and researching has left me dazed and confused.

My 20 year old son and I have Sox tix for Tues, 17 June, night game. In addition to the game, we will do two days of seeing the sights. I'm in a quandary about which area to choose for our hotel. Should I align myself for ease of access to Fenway or to a particular area for sights?

As for sights, which ones would you recommend as most important/best to see in that short time frame? I'll admit that the sights are secondary to the baseball game. ;-)

One thing that might be pertinent to suggestions is that we will be coming into the city from a week's vacay in Philadelphia via Amtrak. I see on their booking site there are multiple train stations in Boston. Is there a "best" one? Should I base my choice of stations on the location of the hotel I book?

Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer.
