Our hotel was The Millenium Bostonian, located across the street from the Faneuil Hall Marketplace, an historic and very popular Boston attraction.

I could see the Haymarket when looking out the window. This wasn't the most picturesque view, but the Haymarket is a farmer's market that has been operating since 1830. It is open year round on Fridays and Saturdays from dawn to dusk. Can you see the huge artichoke display below?

Across the street from our hotel was the historic Faneuil Hall Marketplace, home of Faneuil Hall, a meeting hall since 1742 that is still used today. We stopped by the Great Hall to listen to the very informative talk about the hall's historic significance.

And then some shopping in the stores at Quincy Market.
Then we were off on the T, Boston's subway... We took the green line, outbound....
...to Boston's Theater District.

Next was a delicious dinner at Trattoria Il Panino on 11 Parmenter Street.
The restaurant is very tiny. We were a little early for our 9:00 PM reservation and the restaurant is so small that we had to go next door to wait. When seated we walked past the celebrity wall....

...and down the narrow stairs to the very dark basement where several tables were crowded together in a very small space. The very delicious meal more than made up for the atmosphere. I had the salmon, which was perfectly prepared.
The weekend getaway concluded with a casual breakfast in Quincy Market where we had our choice of breakfast items from several food vendors. We ate under the dome of the Market building enjoying the historic surroundings and spirited conversation.
