Great fun place to shops, to eats, to drinks for couples or families. During winter time less crowds, enjoy so much for the international foods, also all different varieties ice creams.

Its a nice small local market close to downtown Boston. But its too small for its fame. Also, its too expensive. There are some souvenir shops, some good food. It also has few brand shops outside the main hall

We had such fun walking around, eating lobster rolls and clam chowder. After a quick nite we went to some of the stores. It is touristy but fun and tasty foods keep people returning.

We went during Halloween weekend so there were a lot of people around, dressed up for what seemed to be costume parties or competitions. It was crowded but added to spirit of the holiday. We ate lobster rolls inside of the hall, i do not...More

A Boston native that enjoys coming back every time I am in town to remind myself of the rich history of Boston, always learn something new. The public town meeting space is not to be missed when it is open

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

Westin Boston Waterfront. That's a nice hotel. The area has been developed with some good bars and restaurants, but it is not super convenient to central Boston attractions, especially if you want to walk. BTW, when info this specific is provided, it's easy to google the hotel identity. Just google boston hotel 793 guestrooms 16 floors

I am staying in Franklin, but coming to Boston for a few hours and going to Faneuil Hall Marketplace. 1. Best place to park 2. Best place to eat (it doesn't have to be at the Faneuil Hall Marketplace, but OK if in that area or even on way to or from Franklin). I have a teenage boy and only looking for reasonable priced casual atmosphere>

Best place to park on a weekend near Faneuil Hall is at the Pi Alley parking garage. It's relatively inexpensive on the weekends, only $12 for the day. If you are coming during the week, you won't find any cheap parking in that area, you will just have to pay through the nose for it. You might want to consider the T if you are coming during the week. As far as place to eat, does he like seafood? If so, the Salty Dog at the Marketplace is nice, OR you could just get food from one of the...More

My son, daughter and I are going to the Patriots game next weekend. We are arriving on Friday afternoon and are looking for things to do on Saturday...we are staying at the Residence Inn in Norwood...my children are both adults..How far away is Boston? We were thinking of the Trolley Tour or going to Faneuil Hall Marketplace. Any suggestions would be helpful...Thanks

As long as there are no sink holes and light traffic, it should take about a half an hour to drive in. I think a Trolley Tour is a good idea as you will see more of the city. You can stop off at Faneuil Hall when you do that loop. Areas that may interest the family are Beacon Hill, the North End, Newbury Street.
