If you are looking for a fun way to spend your evening over the next few months, you might want to consider attending a Boston Celtics game. The Celtics are currently heading into the playoffs as the second seed in the eastern conference, and look to get back to the NBA finals to win the franchise their 18th championship. The NBA playoffs are some of the most exciting games played in the season, and with the depth and firepower of the current Celtics roster, there is no doubt that they will have an exciting playoff run.

Although playoff tickets can be pricey, the experience is well worth it. The atmosphere in TD Garden, playoffs or not, is always full of energy. Immediately as you enter the Garden, you will feel the buzz of the eager Celtics fans ready to cheer on their team. Even if you aren’t a basketball fan, you won’t be bored at a Celtics game. The Garden consistently hosts a fun, entertaining night of basketball and offers many authentic food options around the concourse, as well as many raffles, activities, and much more during the games. 

TD Garden is located right across the Zakim bridge, around an hour from Hollis, NH. There is parking inside the Garden, as well as many parking lots around the area for slightly cheaper. You can also take the train right into the Garden, but the trains tend to run at odd times, meaning you might need to plan a little more. TD Garden is located near several other attractions and restaurants in Boston, and you could easily make a whole day out of one visit. You could eat at a local restaurant on Causeway Street before the game (these restaurants are like an extension of the Garden, full of Celtics fans and energy), check out the fan shop in the Garden, or just take a nice walk around Boston. 

Starting Saturday, April 15th, and for the next two months, the Celtics will be in and out of the Garden playing playoff games. If you have the time, you should definitely consider being a part of the fun right here in Boston!
