Everytime my Family and I visit Boston. We always stop in the market square and grab food and souviners. We also found a boat rental place right next door. There is horse drawn carriage rides. The Boston Aquarium is in the same neighborhood. We love it there. Great place for family's of all ages.

This is a large food court with shopping on the Freedom Trail. Lots of choices so it’s a good place for groups to eat if you walking the trail. Lots of shopping also.

This marketplace was near our condo so we visited it often. It was impossible to pass by on our way to the room because of the great outdoor Christmas lights. The shops inside were filled with local merchandise.

Love Faneuil Hall's rich history. You cannot visit Boston without going to Faneuil Hall and the market place. You will walk in the steps of history while enjoying small market stands of homemade artisan items and fresh food items and restaurants. Step out and enjoy Quincy Market. Make sure you take the time to tour and learn the history of... More

FH is really such a beautiful building. Inside we were a little underwhelmed, I wanted a bit more traditional Boston but it was tacky goods. But I think we are spoiled Londoners so apologies if that's your thing.

This was my first (and last) visit to Faneuil Hall & Quincy Market. I don't see wanting to revisit what is, as another reviewer correctly stated, "A glorified food court." Great structure, plenty of over-priced tourist stuff and trying-ever-so-desperately to have a "vibe" which encompasses history, yet appeals to tourists and hipsters. <---one of those things is not like the...

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.
