Spendy, but we had the City Pass

We got a nice day to look over Boston. The free information personal phones were nice. Punch in the number and listen. They had ones for adults, and ones for kids. They have... read more

We had been to the top of the Prudential Center before, but not with our grandchild and niece. They both loved the 360 views which are spectacular, especially on the clear weather day that we were there. The photographers in the group had a great time with their cameras and the audio tour for kids was very well done with... More

If you not taking pictures, go to Top of the Hub RESTAURANT/BAR, when they ask you at the bottom. They use separate elevators at the Prudential building to prevent anyone getting in for FREE. Go to the bar, grab a $7 beer and relax with the AWESOME VIEW! I had a tripod, so didn't want to be THAT GUY. Went... More

We got a nice day to look over Boston. The free information personal phones were nice. Punch in the number and listen. They had ones for adults, and ones for kids. They have it in several languages, too. I learned a lot of great tidbits (like the molasses spill) that I hadn't known. In most cities, we end up doing... More

I am not much of a shopper, so I went for the view. It was absolutely breathtaking and I was surprised at how far I could see. I am also big on finding souvenir pennies, and there is one on the Skywalk. There is also tons of history information up there, which I wasn't expecting!

On our way from the T station we found a lock bridge that looks like it is just beginning. Still cool to see. There was no line at the bottom or top! We went right up and were able to stay as long as we wanted. It was a beautiful day so the views were amazing. There is an audio... More

We always go to the highest place we can find to see the view and the Prudential doesn't disappoint. It is a bit pricey, so stay a while and really take at in. The historical movies are actually very good.

good to get out of the cold here plenty of shops and eating the Sky Walk was good but better to do it when the weather is a bit clearer, you can see a lot of the city from here no good if you don't like heights

Inclement weather = indoor mall time rather than Quincy Market. Higher end stores (no Claires, for example). Food court is excellent!

The skywalk observatory is incredible with amazing views of the city. You also get a hand held device that tells you about the history of what you are looking at based on the code you put in, very interesting. You will get some great photos from the observatory and it is awesome don't miss it if you have the chance... More
