If there's one thing Boston has no shortage of, sports bars is that thing. They're practically as revered in this town as the teams fans gather there to cheer for. Here's a quick rundown of some of the icons and new favorites:

1. Game On. The bar is IN Fenway Park, so it's a must-visit for Red Sox fans.

2. The Greatest Bar. This one is across from the TD Garden, and, despite the fact that it's four floors, it's not unusual to find it jam-packed with Bruins and Celtics fans on game nights.

3. Jerry Remy's Seaport. This bar is a crowd-pleaser. It's got walls of televisions for diehard sports fans, plus a wall of windows, a beautiful outdoor deck and a new venue and décor give it more in the way of atmosphere than the typical sports bar.

Boston is, without question or apologies, a huge sports town. Bostonians are passionate about their Red Sox, New England Patriots, Boston Celtics and the Bruins. On any given day there's a game on and when there's not, Boston sports bars are filled with people talking sports and looking ahead to the upcoming season.

If you're looking for a place to watch the game in Boston, or just want to be part of the sports-loving fun, head over to the Fenway area and cop-a-squat at one of the sports bar near Fenway Park. Game On! is one of the biggest sports in the area, with two floors dedicated to all the Boston teams. 

If you're a die-hard Boston sports fan and want to hang with the locals who understand your passion for Boston teams, head into the North End or Southie for the best sports bars. The North End cafes is where you'll find locals watching the game. In Southie, any of the bars on Broadway will be airing the games, or at the very least ESPN, on various TVs.
