The best way to experience all that Opening Our Doors has to offer is through walking or biking.
Bluebikes are a great way to bike around the city at an affordable rate. The Fenway neighborhood is best navigated by bike. There are bike stands right in front of the Christian Science Plaza.
The Fenway neighborhood is services by the Orange Line, Green Line E and several bus routes. Regular fares apply.
The Christian Science Plaza is a short walk from the Hynes and Symphony Green Line stations, as well as the Massachusetts Avenue Orange Line.
The Green Line E train services Huntington Avenue with stops at Northeastern, MFA and MassArt (Longwood station)
The No. 39 bug runs the length of Huntington Avenue and includes access to Evans Way Park
The CT3 bus runs from Ruggles station on the Orange Line, down the Fenway to Brookline Avenue near Wheelock College.
There are several independent parking garages and lots throughout the neighborhood. The two closest parking garages are the Westland Avenue Garage and the Prudential Center Garage. Parking can be expensive. Plan your drive accordingly.
Restaurants in the Fenway
There are many good options for great food in the Fenway - on both sides of the Emerald Necklace / Back Bay Fens. Our focus here is on independently owned restaurants in the neighborhood.
Right across the street from the Christian Science Plaza, on Mass Ave, there are a number of great restaurants including Pho Basil (Vietnamese); Mumbai Spice (Indian); and Oakleaf Cakes (coffee & baked goods). Peterborough Street in the West Fens has a terrific and diverse array of independently owned restaurants including Thornton’s Fenway Grille (casual, sit down); Bennett’s Sandwich Shop; Cafe Phinista (Vietnamese); Fiouna’s Restaurant (Middle Eastern & Persian). It is easy to cut through the Emerald Necklace, Back Bay Fens to lunch at one of these great spots. Stop at the Fenway Victory Gardens and the Emerald Necklace Shattuck Visitor Center on the way!
