We spent several hours each day at Quincy Market during our trip to Boston. The Market has a "block party" atmosphere with a large, open courtyard, hundreds of food choices, great shops and amazing street performers! We ate, drank & were merry! We will definitely go back on our next trip to Boston.

Neat place with beautiful architecture. It has many food places. They seem like mall food shops, but there are so many of them that it was neat to browse through. There were street performers and various vendors for goods as well. It is in the Freedom Trail so if you are nearby you should stop in to stroll through the... More

Place for shopping and dining.... Place where you can do people watching.... There are entertainment on the plaza too. With a lot of visitors it is surprising how they are able to keep the bathrooms clean.

Went in here more or less by a coincidence though it turned out to be a great one. The building itself is remarkable. Inside is a marketplace with plenty to see and buy. Really enjoyed it. The area surrounding the hall is also a very nice place.

We enjoyed shopping at all of the stalls and taking a stroll all around the area. If you need a gift or something to remember your trip by- this is the place to shop. The food area has tons to offer, but during the lunch hour it is controlled chaos. We were able to get a good lunch at a... More

The hall is part of Quincy Market. Historical tours are available with a ranger from the National Park Service. The first floor of the Hall itself is full of shops selling lots of knick knacks/books/etc. There is an ice cream shop. Faneuil Hall is worth visiting if you are in the area. but parking is extremely expensive. Compared to other... More

This was a great stop on the Freedom trail. The ranger that gave our presentation in Faneuil Hall was great, she gave us the history in such an interesting story and to cap it off she sang a song from that era, and she was good! It very nicely demonstrated the acoustics of the hall as it was built for... More

Faneuil Hall is similar to a food court in a mall. With a few other vendors selling tourist type wares. We ate at several vendors, none of which are worth a repeat visit. The most interesting is the entertainment outside in the surrounding area. Boston has designated this area as pedestrian only thus permitting a large open area to enjoy... More
