Fondest memory: Faneuil Hall is a touristy shopping/dining center in Boston's historical downtown. While we stayed away from the craziness of the crowds, the Abercromie and Fitch's, and the other chain stores... we did walk through Quincy Market and found a bustling food fair. Locals suggest to stay away... we walked through the area, enjoyed looking at it, then went on our way. One website says, 'The ?Cradle of Liberty,? Faneuil Hall was the site of many fiery Towne Meetings. Built in 1742 by merchant Peter Faneuil and given as a gift to the town, Faneuil Hall has served as an open forum meeting hall for over 250 years. Here, Bostonians protested the British taxation policies of the 1760?s. Their protests eventually led to the American Revolution. Located adjacent to the Quincy Market building.'
