Stopped here for food.

I came here as I like to try out places on the old Rachel Ray's $40 A Day show. The marketplace is definitely interesting and the fast breakfast was good.

There are great food stores and gift shops, along with a great historic site- Faneuil Hall - the birth place of the United States. That is easy to get to and plenty to do. A must see in Boston.

If you want to see Boston in a microcosm, see Faneuil Hall. History, food, culture, its all here. Its the first place I stop when I'm in town, and then see if I have time for anything else. Food is stellar in central pavilion. Shopping is great. Watch the street performers, or just sit outside and people watch. Boston is... More

I've been coming here since I was a kid. Great food and shopping always. We got a great meal and cocktails at happy hour prices before a Bruins game. Plus, history. Check it out.

We visited Faneuil Hall every day during our week in Boston. It's has a superb mix of food and drink on offer. It's a nice peaceful place to grab a coffee and a danish around breakfast time and gets livelier during the day as people head there for lunch. We had a variety of meals there; Chinese, seafood, pizza, sandwiches... More

No trip to Boston would be complete with out a trip here . It's one of the first Food Halls and still is one of the best . You will enjoy every aspect of the visit from the food to the shopping

Visited Boston with another family. 4 Kids ranging 9-12 loved this place. The parents enjoyed the shopping and food and the kids loved loved loved the games they had set up for anyone to play with: ping pong, pool, twister, chess and more. Great spot to hang out, rest, and grab a bite after walking the Freedom Trail or general... More

Love the atmosphere at Faneuil Hall. Last time we were there there was a big rally with Elizabeth Warren speaking. Street entertainers and lots of vendors. A lively place for sure.

We were in Boston and of course had to stop in a Faneuil Hall. We grabbed a quick lunch - there are many, many places to eat. Walked in to some of the shops. It's a very lively place and a fun place to spend a couple hours.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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 your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
