The market place is vibrant with restaurants, shops and, . entertainers. Faneuil Hall has some beautiful craft and food stalls - but, be careful of the overloaded trash trolleys. I was hit by one and sustained a nasty leg injury. Unfortunately the market management were not concerned about this thus leaving us feeling very ambivalent about what should have been... More

Loved the meeting room upstairs. Great talk by the guide. It was a really historic building that was so important in the life of America. We discovered things we did not know about. If you visit do not just look at the market place you may go upstairs. Then you can pop across to Quincy market and have a bite... More

This market was most impressive. It was extremely crowded, but probably due to popularity. A most interesting selection of produce, I wish I'd had more time.

Lots of different food available here but it's all very casual. Had breakfast here and it as very good. Would not choose for a sit-down lunch or dinner. Good number of interesting shops as well to be fair.

Give it a 3.5 stars. As a local, I tend to stay away from this place. However, if you're out of town this is a good place to see. It does have historical buildings, ton a places to eat and shops near by. There are street performers too.

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.
