Of course there's a place in every city to check out the best panoramic views. There's no doubt that this is the place in Boston. I can't recall the ticket price (I remember I thought it was pricey), but it's one of those things you just have to do. Our family of five (including 3 teenagers) was lucky to get a crystal clear day--you could see forever. What's great about the setup is the fact that your price of admission includes a handheld phone-like device for a self-guided tour. Most of the time I'm turned off by fussing around with a gadget to get a boring commentary. However, in this case, you can go around the 360 degree deck and simply type in the number prompt above the window where you happen to be standing, and you get a pretty concise, well-articulated explanation of what you're seeing. If something bores you, switch it off and move on to something else--in other words, you're not tortured by having to go sequentially through all of the narration. This is a panoramic viewpoint that should NOT be missed!

if you visit Boston you have to do the sky walk situated in the prudential centre. This centre is full of great shops and a fantastic food court. it is attached to 2 major hotels and Hynes conference centre with restraunts both inside and outside

It is well worth the entrance fee, as not only are the views spectacular but the displays etc are really interesting.
This spot is about half way on a walk from Fenway down to Faneuil Hall, and makes a great stop off for a drink in the food court and a little retail therapy.

Actually this is a review of the Prudential Center/Copley Place/Hynes Auditorium complex that runs from Copley Place on Dartmouth Street all the way to the Sheraton Hotel. There is an incredible amount of stores, restaurants of all price ranges, a food court, all connected thru skywalks. You can get from the train station to the Sheraton, about a 5-6 block walk, without being outdoors for more than a few yards. You can walk between the Sheraton, Marriott, Westin and Copley Place hotels using this complex. It was an incredible experience and SOOO convenient.
