Faneuil Hall is the place to hang out while in Boston. If you're wondering where all the young people are, they're there. With over a dozen colleges and universities in the area, it was fun for an "oldie" like myself to down some "suds" with folks under 25. Haven't done that in 40 years! Don't miss it....bars, restaurants and shops....people... More

The perfect spot to shop and grab a quick bite. Touristy but fun. There are many choices for lunch, but not easy to find a spot to sit and enjoy it.

Great historic building and the architecture is fabulous. There are stairs but there is also an elevator if you need handicap access.

Here you can go in on the southeast side to experience the past of this building and its part in history. Park Rangers are around to tell you the stories during the day. Or you can stroll around the market place and shop for your gifts and souvenirs from Boston.

So much to see -- the marketplace on the first floor for fun souvenirs; the meeting hall on the second floor (park ranger was very informative); the third floor museum/headquarters of the "Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts". Really -- don't skip the ranger presentation which really brought the history of the place to life.

I can't put my finger on it--I can't say exactly why I liked Faneuil Hall except to say that when I was there, I truly felt like I was back in New England--back in the Boston area where so much history was made!

We toured using the National Park Service Ranger led-tour. It is free, informative, and impressive for all ages. Just know that this is a stop on most tourist's agendas and is very busy.

Part of our one day visit of Boston. The building has been well restored and the Park Service tour was excellent. Learned a great deal about the events that took place here and the important people that took part in those events. Good use of our tax dollars.
