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.
I have family in Beantown and was taken out around here on my last night there. It was amazing!!! I loved it from sitting down in Cheers having a Sam Adams to going to Kinsales and having more fun there. The Hall was packed but it was truly a wicked awesome spectacle. I will be going back again next year. If you are in Boston for any kind of trip you simply must go there. The street performers, the shops, restaurants, and pubs are some of the best. I'd give it more than 5 stars if I could!! Faneuil Hall I will see you again next year!!!!
I am a native Bostonian, and I still love to walk through the marketplace each season and just people watch, grab a bite and take in the beautiful architecture that surrounds the area. It can get very crowded but it adds to the vibrancy of the place. The street performers are entertaining, and the beauty of the space is wonderful night or day. If you go, you MUST go inside Faneuil Hall itself. The hall is quite beautiful and historically significant. So many tourists bypass it, and it is right in front of them! Imagine the two granite market buildings meeting the water's edge...it used to. Ships from around the world would dock at its doorway (almost) and bring Bostonians goods from all over. Portions of the harbor were reclaimed by man made land all the way to the present harbor side by the Aquarium. There is a lot to see and do within a 5 minute walk in any direction. Those that say they are bored, are boring people who cannot take interest in interesting things!
I'm from Arizona, and I've had the pleasure of visiting Boston several times and Faneuil Hall is so cool...... Period. It's a "bucket-list" must. Centered in the great historic town of Boston, this is a tourist jewel. Fun shops, great atmosphere, and sensational seafood adjacent to Boston's famous Italian North End.
I haven't been back in 4 years... I so miss Boston and Faneuil Hall!
I don't know what lamo blech was talking about but when my boyfriend and I went to Boston
We walked all every where and at night I never once felt scared or in fear of my life. The people were really nice compared to the douche bags in ca I'm used to. Salem & Cambridge were also awesome!
Great area of town finding Cheers nearby was a fun treat! We were in the area for 2 days and saw multiple street performers and all were fun to watch and well worth tipping a few bucks to keep them in business! Great food and shopping opprotunities.
Todd English's "Kingfish Hall" is by far the best fish restaurant that I have every eaten at - and that says a lot since I lived in Seattle for 20 years! Try the mac & cheese with lobster - super! Start off with the calamari is excellent!
