We, as a group, were contemplating what Boston is known for. I think that's easier for someone that hasn't grown up here to pinpoint, and there were a few suggestions: Fenway/Red Sox, clam chowder, lobsters. In the end, I made the executive decision to skip the seafood (bleah, gross!) and go with Fenway (woohoo!). The rationale was that you mention Fenway and everyone knows you're talking about Boston, but clam chowder and lobster are more regional things (Maine, Cape Cod).
This picture was taken by our friend Emma, who lives in Tucson, AZ, and was in Boston last summer for an internship. I got tickets in my company's box for the game on July 3rd and took her, much to the chagrin of my boyfriend! This is the view of the press boxes and the Fenway sign behind home plate from our seats. You can see a panoramic view from these same seats (taken at a different game - that I went to with my boyfriend so he wouldn't leave me!) here - click it to enlarge, and all of our other Red Sox/Fenway photos here.
