"Fanueil Hall" Faneuil Hall - Quincy Market Tip by Krumlovgirl

Faneuil Hall - Quincy Market, Boston: 89 reviews and 179 photos


There is always something going on at Faneuil Hall and it is always crowded. That is the conclusion that I have reached. While it IS touristy and the shops are pretty much those of what you could find in any mall, it is still definitely worth visiting. You should really visit Quincy Market on an empty stomach because it is impossible to sniff all the mouthwatering smells without wanting to taste a little bit of everything. When I was in there last, it was a madhouse. The ice cream stand had a line that looked like it would take 30 minutes tog et through. You can find any kind of food you want, from hamburgers to Indian and Thai. You can take your food outside and people watch from a bench or you can try to find a table in the atrium which isn’t likely. Around Quincy is a pedestrian mall where artists, magicians, and other local entertainers set up shop and entertain. It can be a zoo, but it’s all in good fun. There are also carriage rides available. Another good area to visit is the farmer’s market. At the end of the day they start getting rid of everything and you can get some real bargains.
