Faneuil Hall and Marketplace
A site of historic significance, Faneuil Hall and Marketplace stands today as unique shopping, dining, and entertainment destination. Now one of the country’s best shopping districts, Faneuil Hall maintains both its historical integrity whilst evolving with the modern times to bring you and your travel group the best of both worlds.
Originally built in the early 18th century, Faneuil Hall enters history as a marketplace and meeting hall where famous individuals like Samuel Adams, James Otis, and others gave iconic speeches. Though the building has undergone several instances of renovations due to weather and general architectural wear and tear, Faneuil Hall remains an authentic representation of colonial American architecture.
The Marketplace proper is actually composed of the Hall and three other buildings: the North and South Market buildings and Quincy Market, all making up the indoor/outdoor mall of stores and restaurants. Find favorite stores like Ann Taylor, Coach, LeSportsac, Victoria’s Secret, and Nine West among others plus new and exciting boutiques unique to Boston. Tour or stay for a while at the recreated Cheers pub and grab a souvenir from their gift shop to commemorate your visit, watch the entertaining and talented street performers that light up the street, explore the many art galleries, and more. You never know what you might find at the Faneuil Hall and Marketplace district where history meets sophisticated luxury.
Stop by the Marketplace with your travel group for a relaxing and scenic change of pace from traditional touring or tour the attraction along the Freedom Trail before moving on to other stops like the Old South Meetinghouse and Paul Revere’s House. The New England Aquarium and other exciting attractions are also nearby for added enjoyment.
