If the idea of seeing a real Green Monster (the nickname for the giant left-field fence) isn’t enticing enough to your kids, try taking your little baseball lovers to the ballpark on your next Boston visit. A Fenway Park tour (average cost: $13) delivers more than just a financial edge on a Boston Red Sox game ($52). The tours operate year-round, take you around the entire stadium (except for the locker rooms), and are led by knowledgeable guides who know their baseball history. Hint: Sign up for a 4 p.m. tour during the season and watch the Sox take batting practice on the field.
