Cool Building.....

Our walking trail ended at this pretty cool building. Make sure to go to the upper floors which are pretty interesting.

We enjoyed walking around at night to see the Christmas tree and lights! Lots of great shopping and places to eat! Fun place to wander around. Also historical place to learn about.

Food..not good, made the wrong choices I guess. But the lights for Christmas were beautiful and the lights dancing to music with the HUGE Christmas tree was awesome.

You can enjoy variety of food options there. I strongly recommend a lobster roll. Just pick what you want and take it to your house (or there is a place with some tables for eating in the centre of the building) A mall square just next to the Faneuil Hall is very attractive in winter season with a big Christmas...

Probably the busiest location we visited in Boston its not only a historic location but is packed with amazing food stalls shops for all tastes and budgets . The musical xmas tree and decorations are a lovely touch in the festive season and probable the only location in Boston that puts you the festive spirit . Keep an eye out... More

Every time we go to Boston we visit Faneuil Hall. I really enjoy looking at all the different stall. It is surprising how many quirky things the stall holders have. Plenty to see and do there. Also loads of food stalls. Chowder is wonderful. You can spend a few hours there and spend nothing. Well worth a visit

The shops are located outside of Quincey Market. Perfect place to shop and then get great food. Family friendly place.

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.
