Take in far-reaching views of the greater Boston area at Skywalk Observatory, the observation deck of the city's second-tallest building. The enclosed area, located 50 floors up in the Prudential Tower, provides a 360-degree view of the cityscape, including important landmarks such as the Hancock Tower, Fenway Park, and Harvard University. On a clear day, you can see up to 100 miles. Be sure to pick up an audio guide, which is included in the cost of entry. It provides information about the points of interest you can see and offers historical information about the different neighborhoods. For a bite to eat or drink, head two floors up to The Top of the Hub restaurant.

  • Nice views of the city . The whole family really enjoyed it when we went. We went during the day, I think it would have been great at night we just didn't have the time. We had the Boston city pass which included this, otherwise I'm not sure I would have paid the price to just go look out some windows at the city, it was really nice though.
  • This was a great place for anyone (including us Aussies) to start a visit to Boston. We stopp here on our roadtrip across the USA
