Other than the overwhelming amount of tourists (coming from a tourist's perspective), this place is incredible. You have an amazing amount of food and shopping in one place. There is live entertainment and history as well. It is an all-in-one location for people visiting Boston. All I would suggest is to watch your stuff and be ready for crowds.

Wow, on a Friday night this really rocks. Outdoor entertainment, shopping, dining or just people watching.

Honestly, my hubby just wanted a Boston Harley Tee, and this shop it small, but the giant midway boats all types of stores (upscale, cheaper, candy, etc.) in and out. Inside the one building is like a giant food court. I do mean GIANT, w/everything imaginable ... Italian, fish, sandwiches, salads, greek, Mexican, you name it! And oh the pastries... More

What can I say about Faneuil Hall Marketplace that has not already been said 1,000 times before. The building itself is great to be in and the choices of foods are staggering! Come here for great food and plenty of shopping to empty your wallet!

We had a lot of fun here and returned for a second visit. The first time we purchased food from various stalls to make up our lunch, and the second time we visited the shops and vendors.

One has to visit this place, which I did over 20 years ago, for it's history and its *buzz*. My son was seeing Boston for the first time, so it was on the list of "places to see". After a perfunctory glimpse it became the place to bypass and avoid. Noisy, crowded and for the young...though I would probably enjoying... More

If you like crowds and noise as well as the shops with niche markets, this is a great place to go. Performers and food were hits, people weren't.
