I'm making my first trip to Boston & Fenway soon. Would it be safe to walk back to the Park Plaza Hotel after a game or should I just bus it?

Thanks

To answer your question, it would be safe to walk back. The best route is essentially straight down Boylston Street and might take you 1/2 hour or so.

You could also take the Green Line (light rail/subway) to the Arlington T station which is around the corner from the hotel. You'd get right on at Kenmore (but be prepared to deal with crowds).

Thanks Irfox. I just checked Boylston on street view and it looks fine.

Go for it. You'll be far from the only one after a game.

Definitively safe. There are enough people around on most nights in Boston that nothing bad will happen. Boylston Street itself is busy and has a bunch of restaurants, bars, and stores along it. In fact if I was in your situation i'd rather walk a mile and a half then deal with overcrowded buses and trolleys. The core of Boston is a very walk-able city, more so then almost every city in the US (besides NYC).
