Modern city life wouldn’t be complete without iconic spaces like the Faneuil Hall Marketplace, which affords people an inextricable link to Boston’s eclectic and open culture. This summer, visit Boston and engage in a one of a kind city adventure by making sure that you visit the Faneuil Hall Marketplace.

The entire area is actually four distinct locations in one: Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market, North Market, and South Market. In the summertime, this is the place to be because of the perfect mix of activities and stores that will keep you in a festive and fun mood throughout your stay.

There is a distinct, energetic vibe at Faneuil Hall Marketplace, what with the perfect restaurants, food stalls and street jugglers abounding the cobbled streets that lead to and fro the area. This place is also an historical icon as it was built in 1742 by Peter Faneuil, who was at that time Boston’s wealthiest merchant.

It was originally home to merchants, meat traders and fishermen, and other traders who sold wares and other supplies to the citizens of Boston. Later on, it became a platform for history’s greatest orators, including Samuel Adams, who rallied the citizens of the city to the cause of independence from Great Britain.

Today, this historic landmark is an ideal place for shopping, dining, and generally just experiencing what Boston is really like on a regular day. There are plenty of places to visit, including stores where you can get clothing, souvenirs, theater tickets, and more. Exclusive activities and happenings are scheduled monthly, like Taco & Tequila Tuesday, Open Market Day, the Annual British Car Show Series, and more.

But before you can enjoy Faneuil Hall Marketplace, you need great accommodations so your stay in the city will be stress-free and as convenient as possible.

The Envoy Hotel is conveniently located on the Boston Waterfront and near many of the greatest attractions of the city. It is also the home of the Lookout Rooftop Bar, which has been one of the neighborhood’s hottest hangouts for a number of years now.
