A great place to visit to spend 30 minutes or 3 hours in good or bad weather. So many eating places its hard to decide and probably require a return trip to try out another one. Take time to visit the historic display on site...More

This wasn’t my first visit to Faneuil Hall. I always enjoy strolling through to see what vendors have. But Also soaking up the history and imagining how much history took place in this area.

Lots of fun shopping stalls and food stalls with a communal seating area. Reminiscent of Reading Terminal in Philadelphia or Eastern Market in DC.

This is one of the most busy marketplace even during Winter. Although it was very cold, festivities in the place was clearly visible. A must visit for a solo traveller or couples.

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
