Loved the hall, a popular food spot amongst both travellers and locals. The shops are very touristic however if you're looking for that sort of stuff then they are cute. A nice place for an afternoon or evening snack. Full of laughing people

You can go walking up to the harbour and get back in some minutes. Very good experience is to enjoy the excellent lobster in one of the... More

The whole area is very representative of Boston's history and culture. You can take a stroll along the marketplace and have a seafood meal nearby, along with enjoying some shopping within the market or nearby stores. It is also a great venue for souvenirs.

This is a great place to go if you want to completely avoid any local Bostonians and miss out on the great history, food, and culture Boston has to offer.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
