A nice mall

It's a nice mall which a lot of great shops. It's nothing really special other than that though. I would also recommend Newbury Street over it.

It dominates the skyline as you approach it from the Kenmore area and it looks stunning the closer you get. Plenty of great shops and places to eat. Personal favourite was the cheesecake factory and the sports store. Only takes a few of hours to walk the shops, depending on your shopping needs. We didn't go to the roof top... More

This attraction was included with our Go Boston Card and I am so glad we took this attraction in. It was easy to get to as it was on a Transit Line. In addition to the amazing views the included audio phones gave wonderful detail and history of what we were viewing. This is a Do Not Miss attraction in... More

The Prudential Center was a great shopping experience. Food Court had lines of people but the food was fresh and smelled wonderful although we had already eaten at our hotel. Check out Sugarfina for the ultimate sweet tooth delight!

We toured the Prudential Center, well worth the time it takes. Elevators are fast. Staff is courteous. There is an audio set you can use and it is well done.

The observation deck allows you to see the city. Each window has a # that can be typed into a hand held device that gives an audio description of what you are seeing. It also has historical information that comes to life. It's a must see.

The mall was ok, I walked around and I believe is only one floor of stores. Those not have a big selection of shopping stores. It was ok!!!

Staying in Back Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
