ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Program intended for grandchildren from 10 - 13 years of age.

Rediscover the magic of baseball in Fenway Park and relive its greatest moments with behind-the-scenes access. Ever wonder what it’s like to work at “America’s Most Beloved Ballpark?” Discover the ins and outs of caring for this historic landmark that boasts all original seating, all while witnessing the humungous wall known as the “Green Monster,” a hot spot for right-handed hitters. Cheer with Boston fanatics visiting the sites that define this city as a sports nation. Join the Revolution with a winding walk along Boston’s Freedom Trail, passing milestone sites like the Boston Common, where you’ll be able to perfect your swing during a pick-up game. Take some pointers as you watch players at a local farm league game in a modern ballpark that still carries the nostalgic aroma of a tasty hot dog.


Highlights

• Grab a Fenway Frank and cheer along with Red Sox Nation at a game at the ballpark.
• Ride the ocean waves to Georges Island, the site of Fort Warren, which defended Boston Harbor in the American Civil War and up through World War II and is named for the man who sent Paul Revere on his famed “Midnight Ride.”
• Play ball! Hit a home run in the Boston Common, America’s first public park in the heart of the city.
