Easy walk and a lot of local restaurant. It was just a time to enjoy mother nature. The Harbor Walk you go on your own speed. They have bench and watch the birds.

The most interesting thing we experienced around the Waterfront was the Harbour Walk. This is a nice walking path along a wooden-planked deck which winds its way around the harbour and its waterfront buildings. The views of the sea from the Harbour Walk area were very nice and we also liked seeing the autumn colours of the trees which were... More

When you visit Boston, make sure to take the mandatory Harbor Walk; it is a fine stroll around the old harbor and you'll enjoy the atmosphere, the scenery and the people walking around....

I'm a local Bostonian and often recommend this to people who ask me for directions on the street. The Harborwalk spans nearly the entire edge of the Harbor within Boston and even further south. It's perhaps not a very exciting part of Boston but it is nicely removed from some of the hustle and bustle of the city and can... More

It's nice to step away from the busy city streets and walk along the water. It's a very indirect path as it curves around the buildings built out into the harbor but it is a very nice walk. It has beautiful views of the harbor and is a nice place for a scenic jog or stroll.

Pleasant walk and nice little shops but not worth much of the day. Look at it as a place to go if you have time to waste.

If you're looking for a "Boston experience" that residents use and love, walk the Harborwalk. It's a unique view with many benches and way stations to just sit and savor the view, observe the back side of all the hotels, residences, and buildings lining the downtown harbor.

Beautiful built walkway along the harbor and ideal for a sunny day. Just walk along the water and view the scenery, the new buildings and of course the boats. Also a lot of boat tours - not cheap!

This is the first city where we enjoyed the Harbor walk. My wife was very pleased to see the arrangement for walking the general people. The view is fantastic. One see many boats are parked and washing activities going on during morning visit, Even the Dolphins tour starts from here.
