Historical New England site recognized as a top US landmark in TripAdvisor list
BOSTON — New England's favorite ballpark made a list of top landmarks in the U.S. by TripAdvisor.
Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox and Fenway Franks, was named as the 13th best landmark in the U.S. in TripAdvisor's 2017 Top 25 Landmarks list.
The Top 25 list was determined using a combination of quantity and quality of reviews by travelers of worldwide landmarks for a year-long period.
Since its construction in 1912, Fenway Park has been an integral part to Boston, and New England's, identity.
On top of being the oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball, Fenway has become known for its interesting features, such as "Pesky's Pole" and the famous Green Monster.
For Bostonians and travelers alike, Fenway Park serves as an alluring location filled with history to visit, and TripAdvisor reviewers felt the same way in their reviews.
One reviewer, talking about visiting Fenway, commented, "I never fail to feel awestruck when I first see the field. You can feel the history of the park when you step out."
San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge took the No. 1 spot for best landmark in the U.S. No other ballparks or sports stadiums made the TripAdvisor's list.
