Faniel Hall and Quincy market are a must in any if not all visits to Boston. Faniel Hall gives you some of the rich history to this fantastic city and Quincy Market next door will satisfy any hunger pangs that you'll have after the shopping.

Shopping here is average. All of the chains tha you'd expect. Kind of like going to your local mall, except in Boston. I would not go out of your way to visit Faneuil Hall. Nothing special.

The place was packed with eaters, because it was so cold outside. Nothing much more to do than that.

Our family traveled here April 2014 and as we were in a hotel approx. 6 blocks away with limited time, we ate here several times. It is perfect with multiple vendors of different foods and deserts. Works well for families with everyone wanting something different to eat! We enjoyed the shops and vendors. Make sure when you go into a... More

Stopped in for a snack and a rest during the freedom trail walk. Probably had 20 or so little stands with different chowders, local pizza, and such. Nice little place, busy.

The marketplace is filled with many vendors, making us spoilt for choices. We went to Boston & Maine Fish company. Ordered oysters and steamed lobster. Both were very fresh. Love it!! Staff was friendly. Leaving boston with smiles on our faces :)

A very nice place to stroll around and spend an hour people watching and window shopping. The historic setting gives this a great atmosphere. There were a variety of food options but much of it seemed to be of the chain variety.

Nice afternoon out, the atmosphere is lovely but there were a lot less stores than I imagined. That said the food options are great and there are street performers to entertain you
