Faneuil Hall Market Place
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.
Although there is something going on, but overpriced and overrated. For tourists with time, its a good stop, but if you're short on time, there are many other places to go to better catch the essence of Boston.
One of our favorite places. Awesome bars, shops, restaurants, and people watching. Street performers are great entertainment... local to do and see. Plaza III is one of the best Steakhouses we have ever been to. Lots of upscale shopping and individual cart vendors, bars with ouside plaza seating is great to peopel watch.
