Holiday so felt in the streets. Great atmosphere all around. Roaming the streets, taking photos, going into stores and restaurants. Walked down to the sea shore, through Quincy market. Joyful hours.

You'll likely find yourself around Boston's Downtown Crossing during your visit. It is an average shopping district mixed with restaurants and office buildings. For a small city like Boston, it's nice, but nothing to ride home about.

It's a pedestrian path closed to cars. Nice charming walk with tons of stores and local vendors. There is no parking spot nearby

Downtown Crossing is a good choice for shopping and choosing a restaurant or a coffee place! It's a must when in Boston!

Some of the streets are blocked off from traffic making for a very convenient shopping experience. It's centrally located to most of the downtown hotels and train station.

Great if you want to shop until you drop, otherwise not much to offer. It is undergoing an upgrade but it's currently a bit of a mess.

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

There isn't really any free parking in the area, mostly metered or parking garages.
