Take Me Out to the Ballgame


There may still be some half melted snowbanks kicking around, but Spring has definitely arrived which means it’s that time of year again–the Red Sox play their first regular season game in just a few days, and the Fenway Park home opener is just 10 days away! We love this time of year for many reasons, including baseball. And Red Sox baseball loves families!

For the first time, families can sign up for Red Sox Kid Nation for free and as an added bonus, kids get a FREE ticket to a Red Sox home game. Membership has it’s privileges:

  • Kid Nation Passport Program
  • One free ticket to a Red Sox home game
  • Access to exclusive Kid Nation events
  • 10% discount at the Red Sox Team Store
  • Exclusive Kid Nation Email Newsletters
  • Lanyard
  • Kid Nation Welcome Kit

We’re also huge fans of a special kids entry (Gate K), and a new Kids Concourse with kid activities, games, kid menu items and a chance to meet Wally the Green Monster. And now with new peanut-allergy friendly games and section, America’s Most Beloved Ballpark just got more beloved. Click here to sign up your kid to join Red Sox Kid Nation.

Hot dogs and Cracker Jack is all part of the Fenway experience, but there are plenty of other kid-friendly dining options nearby, including:

  • Eastern Standard – upscale European-inspired cuisine, one of the best patios in the city, and a hip, cool vibe make this a great place for a pre- or post-game splurge.
  • Sweet Cheeks Q – meat lovers, rejoice! You’ll find smokey, saucey, meaty goodness here, with plenty of tasty sides to match.
  • Mei Mei Street Kitchen – one of the best new spots in and around Boston, this food truck turned restaurant serves up Chinese-American comfort that’ll make your taste buds do back flips.
  • El Pelon – tucked into a side street of the Fenway neighborhood, and one of Boston’s best taqueria’s has been recognized as having one of the best burritos in the country.

What’s your pre-game, family-friendly dining favorite? And GO SOX!
