Faneuil Hall & Quincy Market
All the walking around Boston is sure to work up some appetites. If you’re not sure what your posse is craving, head to Quincy Market, where you can also take in a bit of history with your meal.
The nearby Faneuil Hall was built in 1742 as a meeting place, and expanded in the 1820s to include Quincy Market. Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market Place now boast a multitude of spots to eat or browse. Within Quincey Market you can find dozens of choices, from sit-down restaurants and bars, to vendors where you can find virtually anything.
For the full Boston experience, don’t miss clam chowder in a bread bowl from Boston Chowda. Sit in the rotunda and afterwards browse through the jumble of vendor carts and shops.
