Lots of things to do. And eat.

Huge marketplace that offers something for everyone. Lots of food options in the food court, souvenirs, variety of different shops and street entertainers. Fun hour or two.

The marketplace is a nice place to wander around, poke through all the shops geared toward separating tourists from their money (in a friendly way of course), view the historic structures and purchase/eat as much food as you please. You can easily spend two or more hours here. There are stand-up eat and go type foods and there are sit... More

Had a great time visiting Faneuil Hall with family. Lots of fun shopping, eateries, and street artists. Found a great parking deal at Parcel 7 Parking garage, where you can park for 3 hours for $3! Just be sure you don't stay over 3 hours, at which time your parking ticket goes up to something like $28! The garage does... More

This place has sooo many shops, sooo many street performers, and many, many different & unique items that you will not find anywhere else. Go for the exercise, go for the shopping, and go for the experience! Just go!

I read mixed reviews of Faneuil Hall and Quincy Marketplace. I have to say I found it worth the stop, but would have enjoyed it more if I weren't with my 5 year old. He really wasn't into the walking and shopping. However, we planned to have lunch here, and boy am I glad we did! There is literally something... More

Nice and cool to stop in for small shopping but they closed the bathrooms 15 minutes early one day when we really needed them. They were supposed to close them at 6 and it was 5:45. We asked at one of the shops and no one knew why they had been closed but they confirmed it wasn't supposed to be... More

When visiting Boston, make sure to spend some time down at Faneuil Hall. With a variety of shops, food, and street entertainers, there's a little something for everyone here. While in the food court, make sure to view all of the options available before making an impulsive decision on your meal. There's been plenty of times when I ordered one... More

We had a blast here! It's spacious, clean and fun. Unfortunately we went on a VERY hot day and had to leave but I am sure on a nice day this is a fun experience for the whole family. A great place to eat and buy souvenirs. Fun fun fun.

Always a great take in. We were fortunate to catch an amazingly entertaining, free show by "Bob the juggler". The "cradle of liberty" has something for everyone and is worth the trip.

Quincy market in Faneuil Hall was a wonderful place to stop and have lunch with my sisters children and my children while she was in town. It was very busy being summer, but there was something for everyone. The shops were great and not overcrowded and in the middle of the square they had children art activities. Our children didn't...
