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.
It was very boring. Just a bunch of cheesy shops. Supposedly, the hall is historical, but with all the modern shops, you can barely tell. Also, Boston lacked the feeling of life that you find in New York City.
If you're looking for somewhere to have lunch or go shopping, you could do better than Faneuil Hall. The most it has to offer is a narrow, mall-like indoor avenue that passes through some interesting food shops. The rest of it is a great waste of time.
Honestly, there's nothing memorable about Faneuil Hall at all, and if it were to be bulldozed and replaced with a science museum I wouldn't protest. I give it two stars because at least it's an outside mall, so you can sit in a chair and watch people come and go from Victoria's Secret.
Lots of great places to eat. Loads of choices as far as shopping and eating goes. I love that its a historic place, where you can relax and enjoy the scene. There are also lots of bars in this area. Its a place you can spend the day and bar hop at night.
I am from Boston and I love Fanuel Hall Markeplace, there are so many different kinds of things to do. I can go dancing, have a drink, and there is a variety of food to choose from, and to top it off there are places to shop.
