This is a shopping area. I didn't think it was anything special, but certainly if you need to do some shopping, this is a good place.

We fell in love with Primark on a trip to Germany. So when we saw it here in Boston, we had to go. We left with a bag full, something for everyone, as amazing prices. Hopefully soon they’ll come to Denver!!

Downtown crossing is a subway station. Like all of the other subway stations I visited over 4 days it was dirty, rundown and scummy. But no complaints since I did not get robbed. It did pop me out just a short walk above Chinatown, but...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
