Right behind the Faneuil hall, a prominent landmark on the Freedom Trail, I found myself entering one of Boston’s most historic market complex, the Quincy Market. A must visit site, the market was actually built in 1824–1826 and is known to be designated as one of the largest shopping complexes built in the United States in the first half of the 19th century. Constructed in a traditional fashion with old buildings and brick paths, there are a series of permanent stores to shop from. Also present is a regular flea market in the area with stalls of different creative artists and vendors from all over the world.
Undoubtedly I found ‘Quincy’ as the best place to shop for something unique, a trending craft or some crazy souvenir shopping. Even if you are travelling solo, I would say the market is hardly boring as buskers fill the street, performing their inbuilt talents. Offering multiple options in cuisines, some real famous beer places added to my fun evening, and the choice of food was almost never-ending. Ah, and if you love chariot rides – you can find a grand one waiting right the corner, just like I did!
