You must visit Faneuil hall when in Boston. There are more restaurants than one knows what to do with. Lots of souvenir stores, and trinkets. There is also the Cheers bar replica, which is cool. This is, however a stressful experience. The indoor restaurants have long lines, and there is no place to sit during meal hours. My first idea... More

This is a fantastic place to browse, shop, eat, and watch the street entertainment. An extremely popular attraction and packed with tourists. It's hustle and bustle and very crowded. Take some time out to chill and watch the world go by - it can be a very hectic, but interesting day out.

The Faneuil Market hall and the surrounding area are nice, informative, attractive, but the stunner is the Quincy Market Food Hall - WOW......I have never been so spoilt for choice...I didn;t know where to begin, what food to go for, what nationality I was aiming at, which tastes I wanted to experiment with................aaaaargh - it was like being in Heaven...

Every tourist destination has one... a tourist trap. In Boston it's most definite Faneuil Hall & Quincy Market. The area is packed with tourists form around the world who walk by the numerous food and stuff shops, watch the dancers and artists entertain the crowd and gasp at the scenery. It's extremely crowded, So crowded that's hard to enjoy anything.... More

Just returned from a 10 night motorcoach tour and we were allowed two hours in Quincy Market area for lunch and shopping. This place was fantastic. Being from New Orleans it was hustle and bustle like the French Quarter without the stench on Bourbon Street I walked several blocks got a Greek salad to go and ate it on a... More

This was my favourite place to go to in Boston. It's always bustling, and there is always something fun going on. I saw exciting street performers and marching bands, and also took in the many awesome shops and carts. It's a wonderful way to spend an afternoon, especially if you factor in a visit to one of the eclectic restaurants... More

Wanted to visit and as we were on the freedom Trail it worked out well. Arrived just before midday with street performers in full flow. We were met by a sea of USC Trojan supporters who were waiting for their marching band and cheerleaders. they were playing Boston College the next day. It was a carnival atmosphere with the band...
