Well worth the visit when you are visiting the beautiful city of Boston. This place was built around 1740-42. Love the architecture of the place, lots of history. Alot going on. Plenty of markets, stalls, street performers, numerous food stalls etc.

Faneuil Hall was bustling with activity. The bottom floor houses a market area with several small shops selling trinkets. The upstairs has a meeting hall and an armory museum that is a must see for those wanting the historical perspective.

Go upstairs to learn the history. The painting in the great hall were my favorite. Downstairs is more variety of grub that one stomach can handle.

Disappointed to find some very ordinary food stalls on the ground floor. We would have liked to visit the main hall upstairs but it was closed to visitors as there was a function taking place.

The main plus of the Quincy Market is the huge amount of food choices here. However, not all are created equal, so it pays to be choosy. That being said, there is food enough for any palate here. It is a good place for teenagers, as it is pretty high energy. Best place to stop for lunch while walking the... More

A short walk from the Ames and you find Faneuil Hall. Historically famous in Boston and well worth the time to visit.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
