This place is very cozy, little bit overcrowded during weekends. It is a place of a street art, art, good food and city tours. Situated close to marina, it s a very nice place to relax and enjoy a nice day.

Great for eating and shopping! Definitely worth the trip if you are in Boston. You can get a variety of food and it's close to the harbor! Lovely!

One small section of Faneuil Hall is open for tours (at a price), but most of it and the marketplace are all-but-overrun with overly expensive shops. However, be sure to check out the "street shows" -- some amazing talent busting their buns for a small donation. Lots of fun.

Lost of small shops in Faneuil Hall to see, but it is better as part of trip to the whole area. Add Quincy Marketplace and the Haymarket Produce Market (Fri & Sat) and it becomes a enjoyable spot to visit. Parking is a bit steep in the nearby garages at 35$ once you go over 90 minutes. Face it there... More

Love coming here in the summer! Lots of outdoor entertainment! Great place to walk around and then get a bite to eat!! Just be prepared to pay a lot for parking in this area! Lots of little stores to browse through.

There is a lot going on at Faneuil Market. Tons of food options, lots of shops, and street performers. This is a great place to grab some food and to find souvenirs.

We had lunch in the Quincy Market adjacent to Faneuil Hall, there was a wide variety of options. The seating was limited so we had to stand up and eat which was OK. There were some interesting shops outside as well as inside Faneuil Hall. Cheers was right there too if you wanted to sit down and eat.

A historic place that has become a shopping center and fast food dining. So, you won't learn anything about the historical significance. But if you are hungry or looking for souvenirs, this is a place for you. Not easy to find a place to sit. You hover around until someone gets up.

Lively and crowded when we visited, however we enjoyed our time here. Eclectic selection of food to choose from, and plenty of small stores to wander around – a few with unique souvenirs and t-shirts. Also fun to watch the street dancing group in the nearby plaza.

A lot of history happened in and around Faneuil Hall and the adjacent Quincy Market, but other than that, it's just a shopping center. There are a handful of artisans who sell their wares, and some street performers who were fun to watch, but otherwise it's a bunch of chain stores and restaurants. Not a horrible thing, just not what... More
