Boston's Faneuil Hall Marketplace is one of the city's most popular attractions.
Its cobblestoned streets and traditional architecture hark back to a bygone era, while road side performers entertain the masses with a range of enthralling performances. The Hall itself dates back to 1742, when Peter Faneuil built and gifted the Hall to Boston City. The beautiful structure soon became a center for trade and commerce in Boston, with a range of merchants setting up shop.
Since then, Faneuil Hall has served a range of important purposes. It has hosted some of the city's finest orators, with many using it to oppose colonial dictates such as the Sugar Act of 1764. Faneuil Hall was also important in America's struggle for independence, with George Washington allegedly toasting to the nation's first birthday here.
Faneuil Hall's shops and commercial establishments come close to rivaling its historical significance. Countrywide brands such as Ann Taylor, Urban Outfitters and Victoria's Secret can all be found here, as well as local gems such as Local Charm and Destination Boston. Faneuil Hall's unique Bull Market is also unforgettable, with its collection of 43 push carts featuring the artworks of New England's most talented artisans.
