Faneuil Hall - Quincy Market, Boston: 90 reviews and 183 photos
If Boston has an actual center, this is it. Culturally, historically, and economically, this is the heart of the city.
Constructed in 1742, Fanueil (rhymes with "annual") Hall has served ever since as a shopping center and local meeting place. Here, leaders of the colonial rebellion, such as Samuel Adams and Paul Revere met to discuss the political situation and chart a course of action.
Quincy Market was built in the early 1800s to accomodate the overflow from the venerable Fanueil Hall. This is more of a typical urban shopping area.
Haymarket is an outdoor market with stalls selling fresh produce and all kinds of other items. It's next to Quincy Market.
This remains an excellent place to shop, eat, drink, watch the people, and simply hang out.
