Whereas the Fenway was once a sleepy, nondescript neighborhood that only came to life when the Red Sox were in town, today the 'hood is one of Boston's busiest and most dynamic. Just about everyone—even non-sporty types—finds their way over to the Fenway now and then; a mix of sudents, young professionals, and out-of-towners gather regularly to eat and drink the night away, even if the local nine is out of town. Once you’ve had your fill of the cozy community, check out our guides to the best restaurants in Bostonbest live music in Boston, and best museums in Boston. Curious to learn more about the neighborhood’s history? TheFenway.com is a great resource.
