We use Faneuil Hall as a meeting place (which is apt given its history) and rallying point for people coming from different places. Enjoy the history, the shopping, the food... read more

You cannot visit Boston without going here! It has everything, is near the train stop, nearby other historical sites.

The food was wonderful! It gave us a great taste of Boston all in under one roof! The shopping was a bonus I had not anticipated.

Best place to get any kind of food you can imagine. Variety is incredible. All the food looks amazing. Retailers on the outside that take care of the shopping bug.

Very good place to stay: we had lunch there for two times! There are a lot of places to eat, with different food. A little bit crowded but good. Toilets are not so clean, unfortunately

Spent most of my stay around this area. From the great food to the funny street performances it really kept you wanting to go back. Prices were okay but there are a lot of different places to choose from.

This is almost a must see just for the sake of saying you were there. I didn't get the sense of being in a really historical landmark and honestly if it wasn't for so many people mentioning the place, is have been ok with giving it a miss.

We use Faneuil Hall as a meeting place (which is apt given its history) and rallying point for people coming from different places. Enjoy the history, the shopping, the food. It's up to you. It has something for everyone. The cobblestones make walking difficult for some, and strollers are tough here.

This seem super touristy, the prices for food are ridiculous for the quality, and the shopping is mediocre at best. Next time in Boston we will pass this one up - not much to see here folks.

When the Roche group first opened this it had a great vibe -- fun and welcoming -- now it has no more charm than the food court at your local mall

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
