A great place to do last minute shopping. Plenty of places to eat. Gardens to sit in and enjoy a quiet time. A ride to the 52 floor is a must to see the spectacular views, just have to buy a drink or meal. The...More

A little disappointing. Much more like Willis Tower in Chicago than Top of the Rock in New York. Wish it was outdoors. Relatively inexpensive at $20 but poor signage. I expected an organized group but you take a poorly marked elevator to the top and...More

The Hub offers the best view in the city. Prices are high but worth it. Staff were very attentive. One of my favorites when visiting Boston.

We went here on the morning it rained. It's a nice mall to visited when the weather is to nasty to be outside.

The observation deck gives the best views of Boston. They have nice displays to go with the views, but you get to see all of Boston.

Sadly, we only had one day in Boston - would definitely like to visit for longer - so making the most of the weather, we visited the Skywalk on the 80th floor of the Prudential Center - which houses a shopping mall and a restaurant....More

The various shops in the mall are all chain stores that you can find almost anywhere. It is just another mall. Boring. Until you start to look at the "building". The mall walkways are glass covered enclosures that have been built in between existing buildings....More

We went here due to the weather. A nice round of shops. We did the SkyWalk Tour which was fabulous. Stopped in at the Cheesecake Factory that was attached. A nice place to stay dry.

I went into the Prudential Center off of Boylston and had to push my way through the Saturday afternoon shopping crowd that was in the mall section of the building. There were not many signs for the Skywalk but I did eventually find my way...More

Good place for a rainy day, with easy access on the subway. Only one or two shops caught our eye. It was surprisingly quiet when we were there. Pleanty of places to sit and people watch.

Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the
heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and
the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable
skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock
Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit
Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques
– as well as every other kind of store imaginable –
all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice

Well I went when it was raining and it was fine. We in fact enjoyed the indoor attraction as there were audio guides and we could still see all the sites.
