You'll likely find yourself around Boston's Downtown Crossing during your visit. It is an average shopping district mixed with restaurants and office buildings. For a small city like Boston, it's nice, but nothing to ride home about.

Downtown Crossing is a good choice for shopping and choosing a restaurant or a coffee place! It's a must when in Boston!

Great if you want to shop until you drop, otherwise not much to offer. It is undergoing an upgrade but it's currently a bit of a mess.

A neighbourhood with government and corporate offices, nice restaurants, pubs, shopping - Macys, Walgreens. Get a map or locate directional signages. With the numerous small lanes, one could miss the planned destination. We were looking for HRC at Clinton St from Court & State Streets....More

Terrible, really need to clean up the goings on there, very few if any descent stores. Restaurant pickings very, very slim. Very dull & dark place. Nothing to offer there. Mayor Walsh should be ashamed. His priorities are straight out the window. I'm from Boston...More

children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

Does anyone know where the free parking is to shop at this mall? How do they expect people to shop without free parking??

There isn't really any free parking in the area, mostly metered or parking garages.
