So much more than just a public market. Go up stairs to see the historic meeting Hall. Take in the NPS visitor center

Great for all things eating, drinking, shopping (expensive shops or cheaper stalls) and picking up souvenirs. To suit all tastes and pockets, go both daytime and evening for live entertainers. If you are eating, try the Cheers Bar or Dicks for pub style food at...More

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!

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
