Create an itinerary including Skywalk Observatory
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.
  • A great view of the historic downtown and the city. Scenic insight through the bustling streets and calm Atlantic waters. Highly recommended for a unique experience that is open through the day and night. Was fortunate to experience clear sky and full moon when I visited. Hope you like the pictures. Additional downtown pictures added for extra everything ;)
