Red Sox Game tips and Boston Must Dos

We are coming to Cooperstown, NY the last week in June for my 12 year old to play at the Cooperstown Dream Park. His all-time favorite team is the Red Sox so our plan is to leave Cooperstown on Friday, July 4 and travel to Boston to catch the July 5 game. What are some tips you have for us as we look to purchase the tickets, such as best seats without busting the bank, and things we must do while we are there?

Thanks for your help!

I am definitely checking into the Fenway tour. Also, the tips about the ways to save at the game and when to arrive are tremendously helpful. Thanks for all of the help! Now, if I could just figure out which area of Boston to stay in, we would be in business!!

We have stayed in Chinatown, Theater District, Beacon Hill and Back Bay. All have pluses and minuses. This probably isn't the right topic, but if you post the factors that you are weighing (activities, budget, interests, etc.) I'm sure you'll get lots of good advice!

what a fun trip! Sounds just fantastic. Do be careful on July 4th of your route entering Boston. July 4th is huge here, as you probably know. You probably want to return your rental car at a spot not in central Boston as it would be challenging to drive there on that day. Return at the airport, perhaps? If possible, stay in Back Bay. Big advantages- can walk to Fenway Park, and also Back Bay (along the Charles River) is the center of the celebrations July 4th. If you are in Back Bay by 10 pm, you could see some of the fireworks from nearby although it would be too late to actually enter the Esplanade, the main viewing location.
