My husband and I went to spend Christmas in Boston, and this was where we hang out on Christmas Eve. The Christmas lights and decors were a sight to behold! Many stores were already closed during this time of day, but it did have a lot of shopping and dining options to choose from. Even with the few stores left... More

If you're in the area, it's a very Boston place to browse-shop. It's a classic stop for visitors to the city

It is really Quincy Market, But Faneuil Hall, the freedom trail and a whole host of other activities are here. Come to watch the street performers, enjoy yummy food options and lots of souvenir shops.

High end stores, kiosks, restaurants and street entertainment! A little bit of everything. On a beautiful day, like we had, it's a great place to have breakfast, lunch or dinner and "people watch". Pick up some souvenirs and walk a bit of the Freedom Trail.

There is so much food all under one roof. Plus little shops. It's a nice spot especially in the winter to go inside and escape the cold, but there's a lot to take in. The general area is a visitor must!

Best place to get any kind of food you can imagine. Variety is incredible. All the food looks amazing. Retailers on the outside that take care of the shopping bug.

Very good place to stay: we had lunch there for two times! There are a lot of places to eat, with different food. A little bit crowded but good. Toilets are not so clean, unfortunately

Thank Effe E

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.
