    The Citi Performing Arts Center's calendar of musicals, operas, rock concerts, dance productions, standup comedians, and classic-film screenings is a culmination of its decades as a Boston historical landmark. Starting out in 1925 as a "movie cathedral," the theater?then a renovated arts center capable of housing the most ambitiously scaled Broadway productions?morphed into the headquarters of the Boston Ballet. Throughout all its names and incarnations, the venue has retained the grandeur and luster of some long-lost wing of Versailles. In the lobby, dark-veined columns carved from imported marble vault skyward toward an arched ceiling and an enormous crystal chandelier that hangs like a pendulum from its center. In the theater itself, frescoes and intricate filigree surround the golden cupola that looms over a sea of scarlet velvet seats?a sight as awe-inspiring to audiences as it is terrifying to first-graders performing their first clarinet recital there.

    Faneuil Hall is like no other marketplace in America. Originally a meeting place for colonists, the hall's original 18th-century structure was where revolutionaries pushed the message of "no taxation without representation" while protesting the Sugar Act in 1764. This was where Samuel Adams spurred the city to take up the call for independence, and where Daniel Webster delivered the eulogies for John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Other historic Americans, from Susan B. Anthony to president Bill Clinton, have spoken at Faneuil Hall. Yet while Faneuil Hall Marketplace has its roots in the past, it has changed over the years. In 1826, it expanded to include Quincy Market, and today it's also home to North Market and South Market. More than 18 million visitors shop at the market each year, making it the 4th-most visited attraction in the United States. There's more to do than shop: you can watch musicians, jugglers, and many other street performers.

  • Faneuil Hall - The Art of the Brick Boston
    When fans of the iconic television show Cheers head to the location that inspired it on Beacon Street, sometimes they come away a little disappointed that, other than the façade, it doesn’t look much like Sam and Diane’s bar that they came to love. That’s where Cheers at Faneuil Hall, a replica of the set, comes in. This bustling Cheers show look-a-like recreates the interior of the bar from the iconic program, complete with large cardboard cut-outs of Norm, Cliff and Carla, as well as plenty of other trinkets and memorabilia. The working pub also features a menu of typical favorites like nachos, chicken wings and burgers. Cheers aficionados can even line up at the bar to order beers in take-home souvenir mugs.
