Quincy market and Faneuil hall is a must visit. The food hall is amazing. The food the smell the sound. The food hall is great but the small vendors alongside the market are lovely to visit too.

I always visit this marketplace at least once when visiting Boston. I enjoy the different shops and stands that this place provides. Also a decent selection of places to eat. Great ambiance, often with musicians playing outside of the main hall.

This place has it all! Plenty of food options so that anyone can find a favorite, tons of specialty shops plus all the standards you usually find in a mall (Urban, Victorias Secret, Godiva, Ann Taylor...) and the prices are high for tourists, plus a Cheers bar. The cobblestone streets are gorgeous, the basement level stores are cool, and it's... More

This is where free speech started, come see the public speaking hall. Stand where our forefathers offerd their challenge to the tyranny of the King. Boston, thanks for preserving our history!

You can find anything you want in the shops, there are plenty of great food options, there are sometimes college a capella groups singing...what is not to like?! I visit Boston annually for work, and it's always a great option when I am taking my team out. We can separate, do what we need to do, and then meet up... More

I just love Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market. There's such a buzz of energy in the air at all times. The cobblestone walk shows the history of the area. There's so many places to get a bite or a drink, it's hard to actually choose. We've sat down at Cheer's but we've also gotten counter service in Quincy Market, where there's so... More

But it's a great tourist trap and a must go landmark when you visit Boston! You'll see a statue of Sam Adams in the front. Then go through Quincy Market and FH. You'll have lots of choices for food options to go or sit down by the rotunda in the middle of the Hall. There are also restaurants at the... More

Went with my two teenage grandsons. Food was awful. Typical mall food and with no exception the vendors were unpleasant and rude. Next time I'll go to a real restaurant and hopefully be treated well. So sad this place has gone downhill.

--in that we have never seen such a variety nor so many food stalls under one roof, it is amazing! how do you choose something from so many? The shops too are good I especially liked the "Christmas in Boston" shop it's like a small supermarket with a decoration to suit almost every thing

I made sure to hit this spot on our last trip to Boston as every year we tend to not have time. Its totally worth it, so much to see, different shops and eateries and lively entertainment! Can't wait to go again!
