So many choices that it took me forever to figure out what I wanted to eat. It has an awesome vibe inside and out. A must visit if you’re in the Boston area.

Lots of interesting shopping and food. A little touristy and very busy most of the time. More that souvenirs but of course you can get anything you want. Nice hot sauce and pewter shops.

Faneuil Hall’s significance in our nation’s history cannot be denied but the gift shops are touristy. There are a couple of historical period displays and shops but it seems to fall short of what the potential is for this building.

Pretty crowded but worth the visit. Had the best lobster bisque at the Ouster Bar. The three guys working there were super helpful.

We toured the meeting hall during our visit to the marketplace. It is one of the stops on the freedom trail. It is impressive inside. A must see on the tour.

We had shrimps & was very tasty. The philly cheese steak was not that good. Free tasting of chowder was a nice experience. There were a few souvenir shops outside but costly. The boston harbour is across the street. There is a 7eleven in one...More

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
