Not only is Downtown Boston the center for most business and government, but it is also home to some of Boston's most notable parks. At the edge of Downtown, Boston Common and the Public Garden stand out as Boston's most visited parks. Downtown is also one of Boston's top shopping neighborhoods, offering large department stores and boutique shops. One of the country's most visited landmarks, Faneuil Hall, is the center of shopping and dining in Downtown as one of the country's most visited landmarks.

The Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway will bring twenty-seven acres of green space and Crossroads will bring a new set of street standards though the neighborhood, reuniting the surrounding neighborhoods to Boston Harbor.
