Faneuil Hall Marketplace aka Quincy Market in Boston, MA

by James

Anytime my family visits Boston, MA, we always make a stop at Faneuil Hall Marketplace (http://www.faneuilhallmarketplace.com/).

While many folks know this must-see stop as Quincy Market, the true New Englander knows that its real name is Faneuil Hall, after a wealthy Bostonian merchant who gave the city the building as a gift. And what a gift it is!

With over 100 shops, you can buy anything from the latest trends at mainstream stores like Gap, to the chintziest Boston souvenir you could want. Plus, with a dozen or so restaurants and as many street food vendors as you could wish for, there’s always something to eat for even your pickiest of picky eaters (yes, there’s even chicken nuggets!).

Parents will love the selection, too – there’s something from every corner of the world, or you can order some good ol’ New England Clam Chowder (or “Chowdah” to us locals) if your’re looking for a good local dish. Way better than the usual leftovers off of junior’s plate!

But, in my opinion, Faneuil Hall’s main family attraction is the fantastic street performers who awe and amaze thousands of families everyday. From jugglers to magicians to dancers and acrobats, you will be amazed at the sheer coolness – or wackiness – or what the human minds and bodies of the fantastic performers can do.

My seven year old was amazed at one of the performers who could balance on one leg of a ladder while holding a cup full of water on the end of a stick balanced on his nose – without spilling a drop.

With a stop at Faneuil Hall, your kids will be entertained and excited, and you definitely won’t hear those three dreaded vacation words, “Mom, I’m bored.”
