You could always take the train from Providence

Providence will also cut a little bit of time for you on your drive up and back.

I think Providence would be a great choice for the OP. The culinary scene alone is worth the visit (Federal Hill, East Side--Thayer & Hope Sts). If Waterfire is on, all the more reason!

Yes, not to mention it is a great looking town. Chock full of interesting architecture, collegiate vibe, etc...

Ok, so I talked to my husband and he was thinking about whether or not to stay in Boston or Providence, prices seem similar. Depending on the area in Boston, is there a train/metro that goes to the stadium? Also, how is the area near Boston College, I saw some decent prices in that area but again, I'm not familiar.

BC is mostly located in the Allston Brighton area of Boston. There will be tons of food options and bars. This area tends to errr toward the college age demographic. It's only form of public transport is the Green Line (MBTA). The least efficient of all lines. Walking distance will give you a nice feel of some Boston architecture. along the Beacon St. stretch into brookline there are some really nice quintessential Boston landscapes. Fenway park is maybe a 3 mile walk from that area and can be quite beautiful in the autumn months.

Yes there is a train that runs to the games, similar to the one from Providence. But it leaves from South Station, so getting to there from the BC area would not be too feasible.

What is wrong with such places? They have something called diversity. And they require one to be street smart. Massachusetts is not all steeples, statues and stately homes.
