Let me start by saying, I was not able to actually get up to the skywalk.I checked the poorly designed website twice on the day I planned to visit. Both times they said they were open. The calendar did not list any "private" parties that...More
Located on the 50th floor of the Prudential Centre. Skywalk observatory offers you stunning views of the Boston skyline.
You can get an audio guided tour to give more information on the site you can see from each view point.

Make sure the weather is good with good visibility and you can see for miles from all angles. Each window has a number that corresponds with a short passage on a talking guide. Each passage is detailed but concise. Go to this attractions before others...More
OK, twenty dollors seems a lot but you go up 50 floors and the 360 degree views around Boston are incredible so I would definately recommend this. It is not easy to find and you have to go into the shopping arcade and then head...More
Standard city attraction that isn't worth it at full price.
- Spacious viewing area on 3 sides with tall windows.
- Not much extra but a platform: didn't see any information or indication of what buildings were in the view. There was a...More
This is probably a good visit shortly after arriving in Boston to get your bearings. The audio guide is very detailed with some 10-15 stops around the gallery. There is a video theatre with a continuous display of history about the buildings. There also many...More
With the post 9/11 closure of the John Hancock observatory, the top of the Pru is it. Gives visitors a 360-degree view of the city and surrounding towns and you can see NH on a clear day! Still haven't been to the Top of the...More
On a clear sunny day the view all around is quite something. Quite expensive but you soon forget that with views in land and out to sea over the islands. Shows how green Boston is. Recommended when the weather is fine.
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
weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
