Not sure why people always talk about this but its not really even worth a stop. Very commercialized, very small, and overall just a big let down. Just a bunch of medicore shops and restaurants that really aren't even worth a visit. I'm glad I...More

Maybe we were in Quincy Hall, but all we could find here were shops, the kind you have at home in your local mall, and some restaurants. The restaurants looked great and we stopped in at the replica Cheers, but mostly, the area looked like...More

This is almost a must stop in Boston if you're sightseeing but I would caution you about the eateries. Honestly, the eateries in the marketplace (other than the sit-down restaurants) are not much better in quality than a MALL FOOD COURT, except Magnolia of course,...More

Loved this Market - well set out with a variety of shops to Browse through - and not to Mention the Cheers Bar. Great way to spend an afternoon having a shop and a Beer.

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
