Great fun place to shops, to eats, to drinks for couples or families. During winter time less crowds, enjoy so much for the international foods, also all different varieties ice creams.

Its a nice small local market close to downtown Boston. But its too small for its fame. Also, its too expensive. There are some souvenir shops, some good food. It also has few brand shops outside the main hall

We had such fun walking around, eating lobster rolls and clam chowder. After a quick nite we went to some of the stores. It is touristy but fun and tasty foods keep people returning.

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
