The shops are located outside of Quincey Market. Perfect place to shop and then get great food. Family friendly place.

We visited Faneuil hall on 2 occasions on our 3 day trip to Boston. I loved it so much we had to return a second day. The place has a lovely atmosphere about it and kids were very happy too. Lovely shops and stalls and also a foodie heaven as the hall probably catered for every food type you could... More

Lots of different spots to eat, everyone can find something they like (but also makes it hard to choose cause there is so many good spots).

We visited here Thanksgiving weekend with my sister's family. The teenagers enjoyed the little shops and the history lesson. It was a nice place to spend time before heading out to walk the freedom trail.

Although the buildings of the quincy market only contain food stops which have to be seen...the shops around these buildings and the atmosphere is unique and even more in xmas.

This is a great place to visit following or in the middle of your liberty walk. The variety of food is impressive. If you are visiting Boston don't miss Faneuil Hall.

The marketplace has many options for dining, most in a food court type atmosphere in Quincy Marketplace. Every type of food you could want. There is no shortage of quaint little carts selling souvenirs and great items. In the north and south markets are the mall type stores that will satiate your shopping appetite after eating. Plenty if street performers... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood 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.
