A really famous spot I think everyone should see in Boston is Quincy Market – a beautiful old market place right at the Government Center T stop. Farmers and traders started selling their goods around this area about 200 years ago. The actual Quincy market building was constructed between 1824 and 1826. Today, it’s a popular location for people to grab a bite to eat or drink a cup of coffee. You can find approximately 30 small restaurants with multicultural cuisine from typical Boston chowder and Philadelphia cheese steak to Greek, Thai, Japanese, and Italian food along the market hallway. But, of course, there are still traditional markets from time to time. The whole scenery is very impressive and it offers plenty of discussion topics, especially if you go there with a multinational group with different cultural backgrounds.
The outdoor area surrounding the market is very idyllic with several old buildings and some trees and benches. You literally feel the history of this place and it is really easy to imagine how it looked about 150 years ago. And just a short walk away from Quincy Market, you will find the Boston Harbor.
So I would recommend everyone to take the time to experience this piece of Boston’s tradition.
