Great place to walkaround and awaken your senses and taste buds. Plenty of choices to fit everyone tastes and preferences. As expected, it is not easy to find seats for large group. Overall, it is worth the visit.

Faneuil Hall was recommended to me by someone we met in New York that was from Boston originally. It was well worth the visit - great shops and restaurants. We were there just after Christmas and the Christmas tree, lighting and then lighting displays to music were a real treat. Then along came the man with his truck and huge... More

Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market are must places to visit. The hall has information for visitors as well as souvenirs stores. Upstairs is a very interesting historic hall. Take a look on it.

Huffington Post claims that this is the 9th most visited place in the world. Really? It probably has a lot of history, but it has been reduced to a cheap souvenir mall and Quincy Market a glorified food court.

We visited this attraction on two separate occasions, it is commercialized and touristy. There are some historic interests. The best part is it ia around the corner from the Okd State House!

This, of course, is a don't miss, but be prepared to pay extra to see what's inside....that part was a bit of a bummer.

The best deal here is the extremely helpful tourist desk with local volunteers located on the street level where you can discuss your tour concerns and get terrific local information and pickup a map of the Freedom Trail. This was invaluable to us. There are very nice public restrooms in the basement and a couple souvenir shops on the street... More

On the must see list. The entire area around it packed with things to see, do, and eat. You can't visit Boston and not go here.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
