Nice, clean, safe walk

We had a nice couple strolls alone the harbor both during the day and late at night. Day or night the view is great. Easy to get to via the Aquarium "T" stop.

If you want to get a great view of the Boston skyline, Piers Park is a relatively out of the way place to go. Located minutes away from Logan, the park is meticulously maintained and is an oasis. It should be noted that Piers Park isn't really connected to the Harbor Walk (it's on the other side of the bay),... More

I was stuck at the Langham hotel for two days during the #blizzard2015 and coudl not resist to enjoy a little winter storm, so I decided to stroll around the area and following a crowd I ended uo water front with a huge storm and marvelous sightseeing. I decided to come the next day, once the snow stopped and could... More

In an up and coming area such as the Seaport, there are constantly new restaurants, construction, conventions, and hotels. While this is all good and well, sometimes it is nice to just appreciate the amazing views and sounds of the ocean right there. The Harborwalk provides just that experience. Cutting behind the noise and the commerce, this winding path provides... More

We have been visiting Boston for 45 years, and this year we enjoy the Harbor Walk for a week - rain, fog, sun, or cold weather. Tis a grand week to visit Boston! Given our luxury suites at the Marriott’s Customs House, spend lots of time walking and touring various sites. We love Boston, and the flight time was about... More

If you are up for a walk and want some terrific views of both the city and harbor, try the Harborwalk. You can walk along the edge of the entire harbor, even going up and down piers where very high priced condominiums, hotels and restaurants are located. Within the downtown region, the walk goes from Charlestown through the heart of... More

I love Boston and the inner city architecture etc but this Harbor Walk somehow surprised me or shall I say it disappointed me. I wanted more. The walk is short and not along the water side. A couple of benches were dotted along the walk, but not nearly enough for all of those walkers who wanted to sit down. If... More

This is a quiet oasis just a short walk from the hustle and bustle of Maverick Square. It has beautifully landscaped grounds, a play ground, water spray area, and restrooms. It is a great place to sit and watch boat traffic. It is an excellent viewing spot when the USS Constitution does a turn around. The next turn-around is 10am... More

Throw on some good walking shoes and head to the harbor. Nice shops, kiosks and restaurants to hit on your way and throughout the harbor. Loads of boat excursions to take and beautiful to boot.

I enjoyed seeing the harbor, looking at boats, being at the water, and the small park. However, the HarborWalk is NOT a path along the harbor. There are signs that point to places where there are benches on the waterfront, but these places are not connected to each other. The largest portion of the HarborWalk seemed to be several tour...
