Boston Sports The Inside Scoop
Boston Teams, Sporting Events & Sports Museum
One of the most awesome things about being a Boston sports fan is the unbreakable bond it creates between you and other Boston fans.
The other day I was at the playground with Siena. I met an Australian man who asked where I was from. When I said Boston, he suddenly became very excited and slightly flustered. He then ran over to his child’s stroller and pulled out a bright red Boston Red Sox baseball cap… We were instant friends!
Boston’s teams and events are internationally renowned and followed, and for good reason: they’re exciting!
Our family believes everyone deserves a chance to ‘taste’ what it’s like being a Boston sports fan.
We put together this Sports Guide For Tourists to help make your Boston trip preparation as easy as possible. It’s the easiest way to learn about Boston’s major (and some less known) sports happenings.
We hope you come to love Boston’s teams and events as much as we do. And if you make it to a Red Sox game, please have a beer and a fenway frank for us!

Boston Sports Museum
If you want to know how Bostonians came to be so enthusiastic about their sports, the Boston Sports Museum at TD Garden is an amazing way to get to know Boston’s sporting history. From baseball to ice skating, the Sports Museum literally has a “half mile of exhibits celebrating the legends and legendary moments of Boston sports.”
Note: If you’re into unique sports gifts, memorabilia or photos, it could be worth checking out two resources mentioned on the museum’s website. The Sports Museum is a non-profit organization, so both of these are there specifically to help raise funds for the this Boston museum. They’re listed under the ‘Support Us’ section of the site.
