Sports, History Drive Top Attraction List

The Boston Red Sox visit the Seattle Mariners at 10:10 p.m. ET on Thursday, starting their 2024 regular season, so it is no wonder historic Fenway Park, their home stadium, tops the list with an attraction search volume of 110K.

After a season-opening 10-game road trip, the Red Sox will begin a 10-game homestand of their own versus defending American League East Division champion Baltimore at 2:10 p.m. April 9 to start a three-game series. Massachusetts betting apps give the Red Sox +6600 odds of winning the World Series this season.

Founded in 1848, the Boston Public Library comes in second on the list with an attraction search volume of 74K. The library, which is open to all state residents, contains approximately 24 million items, making it the third-largest public library in the nation behind the Federal Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., and the New York Public Library.

The oldest public park in the country, Boston Common, rounds out the top three with a search volume of 40.5K. Located downtown, the 50-acre park is surrounded by five major city streets: Tremont, Park, Beacon, Charles, and Boylston.

Freedom Trail (27.1K) and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts (18.1K) complete the top five sights to visit in the state.
