I wrote the Dec. 29, 2002 review of Faneuil Hall, and after a recent visit, a small scoop of icecream is now $4.95 plus tip. Faneuil Hall still has lots of places to eat, but this is where the tour buses all drop off so...More

What an interesting spot. It’s a bit of history, shopping and food all rolled into one. A must stop and also on the Freedom Trail.

There are so many things you can purchase here from hand made to mass production. Prices are ok and it is well set out.

If you go to New York City, you go to Time's Square. If you go to Boston you go to Faneuil Hall Marketplace. I can't think of a time that I have gone into the city and NOT gone to Faneuil Hall in some way...More

You can find name brand stores (GAP, UniQlo, Urban Outfitters, etc), many restaurants, and any type of souvenirs you’re looking for in this area. I found that Quincy Market was extremely expensive for subpar food. I was very disappointed with my bacon wrapped scallop kabob...More

Fan’il Hall is a must for those who’ve done the Freedom Trail or heading to the North End and want to check out Quincy Market. It’s touristy, yes, but always eclectic and fun. There’s great food around, entertainers and fun shopping. I never tire of...More

In addition to the history, there are tons of reasonably priced food, jewelry, and just about any other kind of merchant. It's huge and a particularly great way to spend the time on a rainy day, as it's only a short distance between the two...More

It’s not a bad visit if you are in the area but it was a bit less than we expected. We had already been walking around for a bit and seen almost everything somewhere else.

The museum and shop are worth the stop. Behind it, there is the Market which is also great to see and taste. There are a variety of restaurants (some chains and some local). I suggest sampling the local ones, and get a taste of Boston.

Architecturally interesting from the outside. Inside you'll find a bunch of shops. Not that interesting to me. When we visited there were a couple of street performers that were quite good.

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
