This waterfront is gorgeous. You have a great view of the architecture, and the airport. As a plane enthousiast (They amaze me still), you can see some landing and taking off every 30 seconds. It's an amazing place for pictures. There food, drinks, vendors, souvenirs, the aquarium, Imax and much more in the area, making it very convenient.

After the "Big Dig" Boston has added beautiful green space and walkways. We walked about the Harbor Walk and paused to see the lovely views of Boston Harbor, the hotels and restaurants and ended up at Rowes Wharf for a sunset sail. We live in a lovely city! Enjoy it.

It also has a small hidden park with green space to lounge around (on your right, if Boston is behind you, as you pass Mortons steakhouse). If you go... More

Great to walk along the Waterfront. Take a a public transportation boat for $3.25 each way or use your week pass from Long Wharf to Charlestown Navy Yard. We went twice, during the day to visit the USS Constitution and also at sunset to see an amazing view of Boston from the water. Nice to sit on the deck and... More

Great location on a nice and sunny day. You actually have a very good view of planes taking off or landing at Logan Airport. My son wanted to stay there for hours!

What was once a vast wasteland just beyond downtown is now a vibrant, high end, restaurant mecca, all thanks to the long overdue addition of the Boston Convention Center. On a beautiful day, sit outside at one of the many new bars and watch the boats in the harbor and the planes land at Logan. A nice new addition to... More

We went to a restaurant called Sam's. It has a limited menu but everything we order was great. I had fish and oysters my nephew a burger and it was great. The view is gorgeous, you will not go wrong with this one. After the meal we walked around the waterfront during sunset and it was stunning.
