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

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.

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
