Downtown/Financial District

The Financial District of Boston is located in the downtown area near Government Center and Chinatown.

The area includes Post Office Square, the Exchange Place and International Place complexes, and the landmark Custom House Tower. The Financial District is a mix of old and new, from the Old State House, Bell-in-Hand Tavern to the Frost Ice Loft and Howl at the Moon.

Shoppers can browse for Boston keepsakes, one-of-a-kind gifts and the latest fashions along a bustling pedestrian mall at the intersection of Summer and Washington Streets. Some of Boston's oldest landmarks can also be found here, including the 18th-century Old South Meeting House, where a meeting of more than 5,000 colonists resulted in the Boston Tea Party of 1773.
