Fenway/Kenmore

Served by a T stop, restaurants, sports bars, and seventh inning stretches reign in Red Sox Nation.

The unceasing activity of Fenway/Kenmore infuses its surrounding streets with unbridled energy. Located near numerous universities and Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, this neighborhood encourages rigorous intellectual pursuits. But when pencils are down and ball caps are on, Fenway/Kenmore comes alive with cheering fans, Fenway Frank carts, and rowdy crowds as Red Sox Nation gives new meaning to fanaticism. Kenmore’s basement beer bars and upscale restaurants offer respite from the raucous commotion along Fenway’s thoroughfares.
