Faneuil Hall Marketplace offers a great experience that involves many senses:the sights, the smell and the noise! You walk in to a busy and hectic place, offering different kinds of food ( many of them offering tasty samples...). Great options to eat in or takeout...More

Great place to catch a few interesting snacks. Always street performers. Would have been better without the rain, but still doable.

Friendly, informative staff. Historical hall. Souvenir shops in the hall. The marketplace is full of food venues and shops. Some local artisans but mostly souvenir items. Interesting place to visit.

We experienced such a vibrant atmosphere on a beautiful balmy Saturday evening at this legendary must-visit Quincy marketplace (as it is also known).

On your way to Quincy market pop in here to admire the building and browse at the gift shops. It’s fairly dull but is a good contrast to the bustling food hall next door.

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
