The marketplace has many options for dining, most in a food court type atmosphere in Quincy Marketplace. Every type of food you could want. There is no shortage of quaint little carts selling souvenirs and great items. In the north and south markets are the mall type stores that will satiate your shopping appetite after eating. Plenty if street performers... More

No big deal. A lot of tourist, cheap street food (overpriced) or chain restaurants, cheap shops, historical significance (?) none. Trap.

I bought Red Sox socks and had a hotdog on my own walking the Freedom trail for exercise and entertainment. I just wanted to stop and grab something quickly to eat out of the cold before I went on the rest of my walk and visit to an Irish Pub (Black Rose). A great stop, long center isle very easy... More

The BLINK presentation will put you in the Xmas mood. Beautiful Christmas tree. Just a few stores, but nice to stroll through and grab some hot chocolate from Ghirardelli's

They had musical trees during the holiday. It was a magical experience. My teenager and I really enjoyed the show. Most of the businesses in the area were polite and willing to direct us around the marketplace. Affordable souvenirs and the best place to purchase post cards!

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.
