I always love visiting this place! Tons of food and shops! There are always people entertaining everyone and things to look at. You can sit outside and enjoy music and people. Subway is close or take Uber if you are staying further away. I think...More

The shops were great, we got some homemade ice cream inside that was great. The street performers were good, however one magician stopped about 2 minutes into his set. He was mad that people didn’t clap enough... it was the oddest thing.

Bustling energetic place. Cool dome in the center. A lot of great food. Not always a comfortable place to eat it. Fun people watching.

This historic building is a must see on your visit to Boston. There is a ranger upstairs giving a lecture of the history of the building which I found interesting, and some pictures of the building over time which you can view.

The market is a nice place to wander through and maybe stop to have lunch. It’s basically an indoor/outdoor type of mall with an expansive food court. Aside from the age of the Hall, there’s nothing very unique or special.
