The entertainers throughout the marketplace were great and there are a high level of great retail shops and food galore! I had ice cream and talked my girlfriend into her favorite scoop as well! We think this is... More

I find the cutest necklace hand made out of real flowers. I bought it and received lots of compliments on it. I love it. Then I entered the building full of amazing food from all nationalities. I could have spent the day there eating my way through sushi, Italian sausage and Arancinis, Gelato, Pastries, kabobs, hot dogs, Indian curry, seafood,... More

Great place to get a bite to eat, like a mini-covent garden, if you are familiar with that in London. Cool shops, you can wander, get your caricature done, listen to live music sometimes, and of course eat eat eat.

Fun stop in Bean town. Lots of vendors and "stuff" to buy to remember your trip. Food is abundant nut I would look for a resturant if your so inclined.

This place is a hive of activity with interesting shops and stalls; street entertainers; historically interesting buildings and lots of people. It probably helped that we visited on a sunny day but even in the rain I think this is well worth a visit.

We recently visited Boston with our two teenage children. They really enjoyed the atmosphere of Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market. They enjoyed watching the street performers & shopping. It's a great place to spend a couple hours especially on a beautiful day.

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.
