Stop for lunch at the Faneuil Hall Marketplace

Faneuil Hall is one place in Boston that will contain a great mix of both tourists and locals.  Due to the high amount of things to do such as shopping, sightseeing, and grabbing lunch at one of the dozens of local eateries visitors will have more then enough to stay occupied.  Located in Government Center, near the waterfront,  Faneuil Hall has served as both a marketplace and a meeting hall since 1742.  We recommend heading into Quincy Market, at the heart of Faneuil Hall, for lunch after a morning spent shopping.
