Gary is a hidden gem in Boston. We have been before but never had the opportunity to interact with him before. My teenager got to see a working printing press up close and consider what really went into the process. I wish I could bring...More
This is on main floor of Faneuil Hall. As I was shopping for some souveniers I was drawn in despite myself. It is a open side of the hall and has guide? performer? that walks through the history of the printing shop and its importance...More
We stumbled upon the printing office while visiting Faneuil Hall. It was neat to see them print the sheets and share about having to set each letter. Quite a tedious task back in the day!
It takes less than 15 minutes to visit here.
First of all we visited the printing office 4 years ago and our family loved it and looked forward to going back. The location had moved and it now resides in Faneuil Hall. It is not as quaint as it was in the old location...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
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.
