Beautiful setting, and nice to have been saved from any wrecking ball. That said, it is just a shopping mall and food court in an historic complex. And obviously touristy. Would be much better if it could be more than a tourist mall because the whole complex of buildings at Faneuil and Quincy MKT are very nice. Just do a... More

The hardest part was deciding what to eat. Everything is inviting & delicious. Try the bacon wrapped scallops!! ... to die for!! The shops are nice, too, but go for the food & go hungry!!

Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market is NOT what is used to be. It was always tourist trappy, but fun, still is. But, there used to be less of the big mall tenants and more local type interesting stores. Not so much any more. Now it's like a mall with all the typical stores but the bonus is that there are neat outdoor... More

We made our way here several times in our 5 day visit and saw something new every time. There was a huge open market one day, street performers another and so many restaurants and historical sites to see.

It's called a marketplace, there are tons of food stalls, kiosks, shops, touristy items. It's fun to hang out on the weekends and watch the street entertainment. We had fun people watching. It's a nice stop on the freedom trail.

People this is a high priced strip mall with a food court. There are better places to see for historical and cultural. Its a crowded mall.
