Feel like getting a little history along with your purchases? One of the stops along the historic Freedom Trail of Boston, Faneuil Hall Marketplace today has become a prime shopping stop for tourists as well as longtime city residents. Beyond the long, food court corridor that feels reminiscent of an international culinary fair, those who frequent Faneuil Hall Marketplace can shop for shoes at Nine West, hunt for handbags at Coach or pass the time at Swatch. Exploring the toys at the Discovery Channel Store has become a favorite shopping pastime at Faneuil Hall Marketplace along with sniffing the scents at the Yankee Candle Company. Toward the back of the complex near American Eagle Outfitters and Brookstone, vendors have on sale everything from fruit smoothies to Boston clambake t-shirts. Faneuil Hall Marketplace is arguably Boston's best one-stop destination to eat and shop.
