Fantastic shopping, abundant holiday events, and spectacular decor aside, there’s one other reason why Boston during the holidays is always worth a visit. Any guesses?
Boston Sports Bring Holiday Cheer
The sports! Boston is a city of die-hard sports fans. The combination of holiday cheer and team spirit is highly contagious, enticing all to join in on the fun. Regardless of which sport is your favorite, there’s bound to be a game for everyone. We’re talking the Bruins of ice hockey, the Celtics of basketball, and the Patriots of football.
Whether you’re in the mood to plan a trip to Boston just for the sports, or you’re interested in throwing a sporting event or two into your Boston holiday getaway, we’ve got some helpful details for you:
TD Garden is Home to the Bruins and Celtics
You’ll get to watch the Bruins dominate on the ice and the Celtics dominate on the court at the same place – TD Garden. Known as “The Garden,” it’s a multi-purpose arena featuring both sports teams, concerts, and events.
Gillette Stadium is Home to The Patriots
To catch sight of the iconic Patriots, a trip to Gillette Stadium is in order. Not quite as convenient as TD Garden, Gillette Stadium is about 30 miles southwest of downtown Boston.
