They have street shows going on all day and concerts on certain days. Check Boston website. There are plenty of places to eat there inside the mall. Best cookies (Blue)Monster Cookie Truck - Salted Caramel are the best.

Busy marketplace near the seafront with a nice mix of food stalls, restaurants and shops and plenty of tables to accommodate the hungry masses. This is what a [partly indoor] market should feel like.

Its great place to go by train, driving and par and walk around or just walk around the town and come to Faneuil Hall at any time of the day. A Place where different Cultures meet, mix of language and outfits and people smiling and having a good time. And you have to enter Quincy Market for some eats or... More

Any trip to Boston has to include the Faneuil Hall Marketplace. Our first visit was on a Saturday so we were prepared to see a lot of people! And, boy were there a lot of people. It was really fun though and we would go again...just maybe not on a weekend!

Head to the top floor where the meeting place used to be. Make sure you stay around for a National Park Service lecture which happens every half hour or so. They do an incredible job of bringing the history to life and describing the different aspects of this vital meeting place for the revolution and abolitionist movement.

As a resident of Boston, I must tell you that a visit to Faneuil Hall Marketplace is an absolute must see! In addition to the great history of Faneuil Hall including America's War of Independence (1776-1783), culminating in America's freedom from the tyranny of England, modern day Faneuil Hall Marketplace and Quincy Market offer a multitude of restaurants (ranging from...

Too much to choose from. But don't worry, if you pace yourself you can achieve miracles!! Something for everyone, at any time. Endless stalls of food including pastries, bagels, coffees, lobster rolls, pizza, pasta, curries, Chinese, Japanese, ice creams, sorbets, just all of it. And that is indoors. Outdoors are cute kiosks, restaurants, street performers. An absolute must stop if... More

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.
