Walk through and you'll want to try a little something from each vendor there. Again a park ranger presentation adds to the experience.

Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market was a fun time. Lots of shops with history, many different types of food and a great Pewter Shop. Highly suggested for anyone visiting Boston.

We only went into the middle building, Quincy market, walked through, and thought this is a multi fast food outlet, not what we see when we walk through a food market in other places (especially Europe). So don’t confuse it with somewhere to feast your...More

We visited on our way to Quincy Market. It is an old historical building with a few shops inside. There was alot of people outside the hall and street performers were there as well. I was expecting something different but it was a neat stop.

The average rating is given because of its location and history. Plenty of stores, eateries, street performers, but extremely crowded, expensive, and in some respects, not very handicap friendly. Expect long waits to eat; if you are a American history buff, there are some interesting...More

There are many, many places to eat. They are all pretty good even the fast food places in the market. They also have street performances that actually have to audition to perform at the Hall. Check specific eateries on the site for best ideas.

The park guide gave us details of how hall was used them and now. Wonderful historical place worth visiting while walking the Freedom Trail.

We found a lot of food options at the Marketplace. Lots of places to eat and to sit and relax. Not too far from this Marketplace is also Quincy Market so you may want to check that out as well. Lovely looking building.

Enjoyed the atmosphere in this shopping hall! There are lots of kiosks and a few popular stores around. There were also street entertainers performing on the outside and many restaurants around for dining, with varying price ranges! A good place to spend half a day!

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
