We were just there for a conference and had lunch and shopped at the Marketplace. With the warm weather the street entertainers and the crowds were there. The food in the marketplace is really good...lots of local choices and food types which worked out great for our group of 6. We all chose different restaurants and were all happy with... More

This was suggested to me as a 'must see', but really disappointed; a truckload of cheap food in a 'food hall', a bunch of cheap knock-t-shirts and some buskers. Spend the time down at the waterfront instead

I've been there on a Sunday afternoon on April. The place is crowded with a lot of people, local and tourists. There are many interesting things to do there for everyone: shopping, eating, street shows and much more. There are a lot of pop shops, many jewelry stalls, branded and unbranded clothes shops, a lot of street food (from ice... More

The hall has a central food hall and a classed in surround which houses tourist and craft goods, leisure goods. It has restrooms, outdoor entertainment and is adjacent to historic Faneuil Hall and adjacent to the modern skyscrapers of the financial district.

The marketplace is a must stop when exploring Boston. It is very close to the New England Aquarium and other Boston stops. The food selection is amazing, a little expensive, but worth the experience. And do take the time to enjoy the street performers.

Located in the heart of downtown it is very picturesque with patio style cafés and market stalls surrounded by towering skyscrapers. The waterfront is also barely a minute's walk away, as well as options for many tours through the city. Plenty of shops and restaurants including the bar from TV's "Cheers". Everything is pricey though which should not be a... More

When in Boston this would be one of the spots I recommend going. There are many many shops and food places to go to that it can be a tuff choice.. Some of the stands/kiosk are a little touristy but if your looking for something that has Boston written on it then it will make a great place to find... More

You could literally spend hours if not an entire day here. There are so many places to eat, you can get just about anything from ice cream to seafood. There are also a lot of shops to browse through and there are also quite a few street performers to entertain the crowds.

I was excited to see this historical building. For me it was not anything special other than the age and significance. The "Museum" was a little bit of a let down, as I expecting more. But just to walk in the same place as some of our founding fathers was very neat
