I was a little disappointed with the quality of these shops, or at least some of them. There were some cute enough shops and good food, but some stuff was just tacky-touristy. Be aware.

I love places like this with so many interesting food choice. There seems to be endless stalls offering every etching cuisine one could imagine, plus local New England favorites. One of the nicest things is that all the food stands appear to be local rather than chains. Nice place to stop for lunch, but be prepared for crowds and difficulty... More

Stop by for a wide selection of food and shopping, or for just some great people watching. There is a little of everything so the whole family will be happy.

As much as people say it's a tourist trap, I simply love this place. A lot of shops, restaurants, and kiosks. You simply cannot go to Boston and not go to Faneuil Hall. It's also a nice stop on your way to the harbor.

Every major US city seems to have some place where you can go and browse stalls of goods, souvenirs and food. For Boston, this seems to be Faneuil Hall-Quincy Marketplace. This is worth a quick walkthrough - there are lots of different shops and food stalls serving everything from clam chowder and lobster rolls to Indian food and gelato. Artists... More

Yes, it's always packed in here but you can find some really cool stuff! There are so many different food options (nearly impossible to find a seat though!) and tons of little carts with unique gifts and trinkets to buy. This place is constantly bustling and an awesome historical place to visit. There are also larger chain stores and chain... More

Faneuil Hall Marketplace is always a fun stop. It has the usual shops: Gap, Abercrombie, Clark's, etc., but also has some fun boutiques. Located on the Freedom Trail, you are centrally located to both historic sites and the waterfront. Worth a stop...

This was a really cool market to wander around, the place was absolutely packed though! And we found the food here (we ate at two separate places) was pretty average, probably because of the huge crowds. It was worth a stop in, but seemed a bit overrated from what we'd heard about it from what we actually experienced.
