Downtown is the best place in Boston for people-watching. Find a bench and a takeout lunch for a break between visits to historic landmarks, and watch the street performers and passers-by. Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market are among the city’s most-visited landmarks, replete with shops flogging kitschy gifts, and eateries catering to tourists. And then there’s Chinatown, a bustling enclave home to some of Boston’s best Chinese food. Once you’ve had your fill of Downtown, keep the good times going by checking out the best Boston attractions, best free things to do in Boston, and best museums in Boston.
