Boston, Massachusetts, is one of the most interesting – and historic – cities in the United States.
Home to the American Revolution, Boston also plays host to Fenway Park, the oldest surviving baseball stadium in the United States.
The Boston Red Sox played their first baseball game at Fenway Park on 9 April 1912. They went on to win 105 regular season games that season, the American League pennant, and the World Series.
