On the Freedom Trail, a nice statue out front, restrooms, parts of it were closed, shops were just okay, visitor center wasn’t very helpful.

Crazy active place. Shops. Wide variety of food options. Great people watching. Delicious chowder and shrimp. Street entertainers. Seating available but the place is bustling with people so may have to wait and share table space. Part of the charm!

We enjoyed visiting while in New England visiting Boston for the day. We enjoyed lunch and enjoyed the location. Very nice atmosphere.

If you have visited before, still has it charm but it is more and more invaded by the big brands that you find all over the world

Was rainy Saturday morning, and seems half the town had the same idea to get out of the rain. Was still enjoyable to walk around and see the shops.

I was surprised that such a historic landmark was little more than a big gift shop inside. The printing press demonstration was very interesting, but we didn't spend much time looking at the trinkets for sale.

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
