Our trip to the Skywalk was impressive. The day was clear with light clouds, making for beautiful views. I was amazed at the views. We went on MLK day and it was not busy at all. The movies they show are pretty interesting, giving a good overview of how Boston came to be. The price is Boston standard, although if... More

Hubs and I had an evening dinner here and it was beautiful! The lights of the city are enchanting and the dinner was excellent! We were on our honeymoon and some locals suggested it for us. The best!

Visited July 2009. We stayed across from the complex so I traveled over many times during our trip. The shops are great and you can find almost everything you need. But the best is the skywalk. A large indoor deck makes easy access without having to worry about weather. The wide observation floor has signs telling about what was in... More

If you have enough time to stay in Boston, go to Natick Mall, which is 30 minutes away from Boston downtown. There are some outlets in the outskirt of Boston area so check them out. Quality of shops in Prudential was quite disappointing to me, not much of variety. Newbury Street is a good complement to shops inside Prudential Center.... More

The Prudential Center has some top notch stores being anchored by Niemen Marcus among others. The shopping on multiple levels is convenient. There are some reasonably priced food choices for the hungry shopper. Despite being Christmas and Hanukkah Shopping Season the 'crowds' were manageable. Keep in mind there are also some nice shops and restaurants external to the Prudential Center... More

I had the pleasure of seeing the Prudential Tower and went to the top and the observation deck. It is amazing to see this structure.

Been here before and wanted to bring our three year old son to see as well. We were not able to see all points due to a function on one for the corners. There is a fee to go to the top but a must do trip to fully see all of Boston from 50 stories high. Our son did... More

We went to the Top of the Hub to the bar for cocktails with a view. You can see for miles. Stay for the sunset for amazing colours and views. There's no entry fee to the bar, but you can pay for a drink and sit there 50 stories high.
