“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We visited the Prudential Center many times during our stay in Boston and it has loads to see. The centre has lots of shops and a food court as well as a Cheesecake Factory. It is easy to get to as it has its own T stop and is only a short walk from the Back Bay area. We booked a duck tour from the kiosk in the centre (which was brilliant and great fun) and we also spent an hour on the observation deck, looking out over Boston (I think it was only $10 and it was well worth it).

“Surprisingly Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

This is a hidden gem! Go to the 50th floor conservatory and get a free audio head set. This helps you to know what you are looking at. They even have a kid's version so the kid's can have fun. There are some discount tickets around town so check into that before you pay at the door. Tickets are $15 per person at the door.

“great location. many different branches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

The food court had many choices. The place has a lot of branches off the main area. The directory was hard to understand for many visitors.

“Shopping and the Cheesecake Factory”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

We could have spent an entire day shopping here. Too bad we only had a short bit of time. I'm sure we will be back.

“Skywalk a must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Don't leave Boston without a visit up to the Skywalk. There are audio headsets, and it really gives an interesting perspective and worthwhile overview of Boston. Even my husband who doesn't usually like such things loved it.
