100 Legends Way, Boston, MA 02114, United States
Nestled in Boston’s historic North End, a game at the TD Garden is not only great entertainment but an opportunity to explore and experience an amazing city. Within a mile of the Boston Commons, the North End, the Boston Aquarium, and the Freedom Trail, there are amazing sights to behold no matter who you attend the game with. If you want to get rowdy with some of the most diehard fans in sports, put your drinking boots on and head over to Greatest Bar or Hurricane O’Reillys. That entire two block will be pack with bars and boozers, so go hopping and having fun!
If you have an interest in actually remembering the game the next day, head to Hanover Street just a few minutes away. It’s is the main street of a very authentic Italian neighborhood full of fancy restaurants, bakeries, gelato shops and more. It is so Italian, that when Italy won the World Cup over France in 2006, the American national broadcast were shots of Hanover St celebrating. The food is brilliant, with nice wines and beers to match, and the atmosphere is romantically entertaining. This is great place to go before hand if watching the game with family or out on a date. Not into Italian? Union Oyster House and Durgin-Park, two iconic Beantown restaurants are also in walking distance. Enjoy the chowda! If you’re not particularly hungry there are other great activities to hit before the game. The Aquarium, the Boston Commons, and multiple stops of the Freedom Trail are also in walking distance.
The TD Garden is well connected by the train from neighboring towns or by T (subway) if you are already in the city. If you do drive, go early and find a spot on Commercial St, it will give you a scenic walk to and from the Arena, and alleviate some of the post game traffic woes. Once at the stadium, be sure to check out the Sports Museum, for everything Boston sports. If you’re a native Bostonian it will be your Mecca, if not, you will instantly learn why Boston is one of the most loyal sports towns in the country. Then step into the Arena and watch it all come to life!
