About TD Garden
Located in the heart of Boston is TD Garden, a multi-purpose sports arena that serves as the primary home for both the NBA’s Celtics and NHL’s Bruins. The arena opened in 1995 as the FleetCenter, replacing the legendary Boston Garden. In addition to being the home of the Celtics and Bruins, TD Garden has hosted several NCAA Tournament events in both basketball and hockey, as well as countless concerts.
Best Places to Sit at TD Garden
For TD Garden sports events, the best seating can be found in Sections 107-115, which make up the club level. These sections run parallel with the court or ice (depending on the sport) and will have a full, unobstructed view of the game. The sports deck on the west end of the arena is also an interesting option – it sits behind one of the baskets or goals with an elevated vantage point and includes several amenities, including all-you-can-eat appetizers.
For TD Garden concerts, floor Sections A, B, C, and D will get you the closest to the stage. However, Sections 1,12, 13, and 22 will give you a seat with a close view of the stage. Finally, Sections 107, 109, 111, and 141 offer more comfortable seats with the most legroom, without sacrificing a close view of the stage.
Tips for Visiting TD Garden
When you head to a TD Garden event, consider taking some time to visit the Sports Museum that’s located inside the arena. The exhibits pay homage to all of New England’s prominent sports franchises – including the Red Sox and Patriots. There's also a statue of hockey legend Bobby Orr mimicking his famous goal celebration from the 1970 Stanley Cup.
Food to Try at TD Garden
If you attend a TD Garden event, you'll have access to plenty of great food options. For classic fare, there's no shortage of hot dogs, Italian sausage, and knish. For more adventurous eaters, check out the Frito-Lay Test Kitchen and try a jalapeño Cheetos waffle chicken sandwich. It's brilliant. Finally, the Back Bay BBQ is the place to go for brisket sliders and barbecue chicken.
