Faneuil Hall Whether it's the street performers or just watching the bustling crowds, the marketplace is always festive and a looked upon as a special gathering spot. In a day's line-up of outdoor entertainment you may see jugglers, mimes, magicians, musicians and caricature artists.
   Founded by Peter Faneuil (fan-nel) in 1742, the marketplace was created to sell crops and livestock. It was Faneuil's hope that his gathering of farmers would realize a little more profit, creating a constant use of the market. As the Sons of Liberty (and area farmers) resisted England's heavy taxes, Faneuil Hall enjoyed quick success.

This is one site on the Boston tour that shouldn't be missed.
