Best things to do in Boston

Historic Site
“If you're looking to try classic New England staples & treats, then head over to Quincy Market. Within the Market is Faneuil Hall, which is literally a huge hall that is lined with different food vendors, from classic New England meals like lobster rolls & clam chowder to delicious treats like cannolis (if you're looking for good cannolis, I recommend Mike's Pastry which is a 15-minute walk away) and Italian gelato. If you're walking the Freedom Trail, then you will inevitably hit this location. If not, then this is a prime destination to be at. Not only is there a multitude of shopping and dining options within this area, but you are within close proximity of downtown Boston, and the beautiful Boston Harbor. This is a must-go place for any new traveler to Boston!”

Shopping Mall
“"COPLEY SQUARE" Here you'll find a cluster of handsome historic buildings, including the ornate French-Romanesque Trinity Church, the masterwork of architecture HH Richardson. Across the street, the classic Boston Public Library, America's first municipal library, lends credence to Boston's reputation as the "Athens of America". Pick up a self-guided tour brochure and wander around, noting gems like the murals by John Singer Sargent and sculpture by Augustus Saint-Gaudens."”
