Quincy Market - Review
Built on the site of Boston’s first market, this is favorite stop for locals and tourists alike for some a quick meal and exhaustive shopping. About seventeen casual restaurants and bars and a smattering of upscale dining establishments are spread out between over a hundred stores. Pretty much any spot is a good place to lounge, and knowing this, the local street artists will come in many colors to dance and play for your entertainment. Sometimes there is even symphonic concert.. all for free. And they’ve just put in acharming carousel or the kids. Boston trip planner will help you figure out how to reach Quincy Market.

Quincy Market, Boston Reviews
food not great but there is something for everyone The early 1800's building blends into the historical feel of Boston and surrounding buildings. Inside there are numerous levels and it's a fairly simple setup. Numerous booths and stores to shop at. A hot spot and go to place for tourists yet it seems pretty historical. The food here is definitely overpriced From street performers to nearby chain stores, you could spend a whole day at Quincy Market exploring. The location itself is nearby other landmarks and is along the Freedom Trail, allowing you to use it as a pit stop on your "historic" journey exploring Boston. It's more of a really long hall with food places all along the sides with a circular eating area in the middle of the hall. This layout made it easy to navigate and search for what you want and where to sit/stand. There are souvenir stalls selling Boston orientated merchandise. Definitely worth the trip if in Boston!
Amazing place for food, shopping and sight seeing. A nice touristy spot is you're visiting Boston. There is usually some performance in front of the hall. Lot of people usually in the evening. The fast food inside the hall are good, lot of variety Asian, Mediterranean, Indian, ice creams, chowders, etc. There are lot of gift shops as well. North end is walkable as well if you want a nicer Italian dinner.
Amazing place! Lots of regular shopping all around the square plus lots of other smaller vendors. So many choices of restaurants and lots of smaller food vendors. Several street performers that were fun to watch. Not sure how parking and trolleys worked because we were dropped off by our tour bus.
People watching at its finest! Great food. I mean really great food. So many cultural options to choose from. We had oysters and clams then walked through enjoying all the smells... Did I mention the people watching...?
Despite the over-crowding on the hot days i was there... I love love love this place. There are so many things to explore and the architecture and lay out of the marketplace itself is admirable as well. I highly recommed going here, especially if you are just visiting Boston. If you are a tourist, then this is a place to go see how the city thrives. It gives you a taste of life in Boston. Especially during weekends in warm weather months, because there are frequent performers of acrobatics and musicians. Plus the food court is to die for.
