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

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...

Great place to walkaround and awaken your senses and taste buds. Plenty of choices to fit everyone tastes and preferences. As expected, it is not easy to find seats for large group. Overall, it is worth the visit.

Faneuil Hall was recommended to me by someone we met in New York that was from Boston originally. It was well worth the visit - great shops and restaurants. We were there just after Christmas and the Christmas tree, lighting and then lighting displays to music were a real treat. Then along came the man with his truck and huge... More

Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market are must places to visit. The hall has information for visitors as well as souvenirs stores. Upstairs is a very interesting historic hall. Take a look on it.

Huffington Post claims that this is the 9th most visited place in the world. Really? It probably has a lot of history, but it has been reduced to a cheap souvenir mall and Quincy Market a glorified food court.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
