I didn't expect this location to be more shops than substance. Of course, it was a Sunday and much of the building was closed (which doesn't make sense at the height of the summer season). The park rangers on duty were very helpful, however and...More

Faneuil Hall is full of little stall and shops. There is a Museum upstairs which is worth a visit. I love going round the square outside as there are lots of performers. Some better than others but it is always entertaining. A must on your...More

Every time I get the chance to be in Boston I always get down to Faneuil Hall. Love the area rich in history. Great place for both shopping and eating and then take the freedom trail from there to see the sites of Boston history.

We found no value to tis stop in any way, or kind, or reason. Everything is grossly over priced in this Market area especially the food and limited parking. Do not drive in, park far away and take public transportation which is also a questionable...More

Put this on the to-do list; set aside one hour minimum if you want to do it right. If History makes you run away screaming, exit through the rear into Quincy Markets!

Faneuil Hall is right in the middle of busy Quincy Market. It's easy enough to walk around downstairs with the usual gift shops and cafes. The real gem is going through another door from the outside to go upstairs to the historical meeting hall. This...More

Definitely listen to the presentation in the assembly hall upstairs, and sign up for the guided tours. They do one tour north and one south. Great presentation! I loved it!

There is alot going on here. Street performers, food stalls, shopping and people watching. It seems like everyone who visits Boston ends up here.

Our family enjoyed walking, browsing and shopping around the heart of Boston, Faneuil Hall. Also, there are numerous places to grab a bite or meal. There are street entertainers which attract crowds of people. This is a terrific place to spend a few hours.

This area is filled with History. Make sure you go on a guided tour along the Freedom Trail. We had Tim Hoover as our guide and he brought history alive. We learned so much and it was fun. He acted the part of Josiah Quincy...More

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
