We walked through the building, past several quaint shops and out the other side to see the guy on the sidewalk entertaining the crowd. The historic significance of Faneuil Hall was lost on me.

From early morning to late in the evening there's something going on around Faneuil Hall. Acrobats or singing groups. Great to people watch.

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
