Enjoyable with great stores and lots of restaurants. Don't forget to visit Cheers and their store. Neat to sit where Norm sat.

but overpriced in the market. We didn't find too much we liked there, and it wasn't cheap looking around

We didn't know what to expect as many people recommended the location. We were blown away with how many shops, places to sit and eat, loved it.

We enjoyed lunch at the market. Great place where each person can choose their own type of food. Seating is limited in the center court but you can work it out

Lovely historic marketplace and restaurant shopping mall. Not as special as I expected: looks like the Main Street of a nicer college town. The harbor nearby and the skyline are big pluses. The food at the market vendors was a bit of a minus: it was of uneven quality but a reliably steep price.

The only thing about this location was that it was crowded with food places and a handful of souvenir shops. There are shops on all sides of this place and adjacent to Quincy Market. When we came by, there were some street performers out front hustling tourists - so, watch but don't give them any of your money.

Visited on a Saturday and was very alive with many people enjoying a drink on the patio, buskers and people watching.

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.
