Near the Boston Harbor Hotel is historic Faneuil Hall, where state officials met to set the decisions of the land. The attraction is now an open market complete with retail shops, restaurants and pushcarts selling Boston souvenirs. On any given day, live street performers entertain crowds in Faneuil Hall in the summer months, and kids can ride a carousel right outside Faneuil Hall for $2. Directly outside Boston Harbor Hotel’s back door, you can board any one of the Boston Harbor cruise boats; guests of the Boston Harbor Hotel can book cruises with the concierge. The cruises range from inner island tours to whale-watching and sunset dinner cruises. Boston’s North End is one of the most toured neighborhoods in Boston, and it’s only a few blocks from Boston Harbor Hotel. The North End, where Paul Revere lived and hung lanterns in the Old North Church signaling the coming of the British, is a short walk from the Boston Harbor Hotel. This is also Boston’s "Little Italy," where you’ll find streets lined with Italian restaurants, plus charmingly Old World cafes and pastry shops.
