Faneuil Hall Marketplace
There are more than 100 places to eat, shop and drink at Faneuil Hall Marketplace, also known as Quincy Market. French merchant Peter Faneuil gave the hall that precedes the marketplace to his adopted home of Boston in 1742. It has been called the Cradle of Liberty because of the number of revolutionaries and abolitionists who delivered important speeches here. The hall is now a tourist center and place to shop, but public meeting facilities are still available.
This is the place to go to watch juggler's and other artists right in the square and never have to pay a dime (unless you want to). They are VERY entertaining and even include children of all ages! And if you want to spend some money - check out the GREAT fudge and ice cream shops! The little kiosks are so great! And take in a little comedy at night! Everyone needs to visit Boston at least 20 times! Never a bore - and always something fun to do!
It's a great place to walk about and people-watch. Lots to do see and do for the family. A carefree enjoyable place to browse shops, eat, and laugh with friends. Best place I stopped was at Crab Tree and Evelyn store. The sales staff are simply so friendly and welcoming. If you're traveling and looking for a nice comb, or cosmetic item it's a good place to pause! Thank you!
It is an amazing place to visit; it offers all kinds of food for every taste it also has many different stores for tourists to visit. It has many craft stores that have products that make unique and special gifts. Food is great and not to expensive.

Plenty of places for people-watching while deciding what will be your next course. The best place to graze in Boston. Shopping, imbibing, chowing, and people-watching, what other guilty pleasures could you want?
This is a great "people watching" place. The mix of tourists, day trippers, students & locals provides a text book impression of vitality and city life. The street performers are just "icing on the cake" as well as free entertainment. On the downside, the prices for both goods and services tend to be high.
Sure it's a bit expensive here but there is nothing like it where you can actually see an historical site without being in a museum! It's absolutely beautiful with the cobblestones and the live entertainers. Just a fun place for food and shopping but beautiful year especially in the summer and christmas season!!
We were doing the college visits with our high school seniors and spent one evening exploring Boston. Faneuil Hall Marketplace had many unique stores,a variety of restaurants and bars, street entertainers and the usual souvenir shops that kept the teenaagers and the adults entertained for hours.
It would also keep littler ones happy during the day as a nice place to stop for a meal after a visit to the Aquarium which is within walking distance.
