We spent a couple of hours here enjoying the vendors, the other visitors and, of course, taking in the architecture of this historic building. We were on the Freedom Trail on a very hot day - it eventually reached over 100 degrees - and this was a welcome place to cool off, have a great meal and shop some. It... More

Any time of year is good - even though I enjoy the warm weather more for walking around outside. So many vendors - goods and food, outside seating and people watching. Countless stores, near hotels, museum - everything.

Many different stores within walking distance, including restaurants and clothing shops. Within walking distance of many other attractions in the city. A great place to visit!

It's so great that Boston has so much history still available for us to visit. Downstairs there is shopping. It's cramped, it's busy, it's loud but that's what's expected in a city! Most things are souvenirs that you will find. What is special for me about Fanueil Hall is this is where my husband received his American citizenship. It's a... More

We enjoyed the Hall itself. Clean and friendly staff. The vendors were decent also. It was outside at Quincy Market and around that was insane. So many people and street performers. The street performers were good but it was hard to see them through all the people. I would still recommend going here because of Faneuil Hall's historical significance.

Be sure to go up to the second floor! It will take you right back to the old days! The Park Rangers will also take you on a free walking tour to the Old State House and Old South Meeting House. Our Ranger was very passionate about all the old Boston history and seemed to really enjoy her job.

Beyond the mash of people and the vendors, there is a historic building to see. Go downstairs where the bathrooms are. They have pics of what the Boston shoreline used to look like before they filled in the city. The original hall is surrounded by additions holding retail. Ton of food vendors as well as retail.

If you can ever go to a concert here, do. The hall itself is very good and interesting and near Quincy Market, but I loved getting to sing there most.

Stopped in for a bit of a visit while in town for the weekend. Certainly is a tourist trap but oh well it's still fun. We had lunch inside at a bbq place. Overpriced but was very good. Excellent variety for different tastes.
