Prudential Center Skywalk Observatory
For a breathtaking view of the city and surrounding area, take a trip to this Skywalk observatory. The windows here present a vista of Boston in all directions. On a clear day, visitors can see the mountains of New Hampshire. Museum-like displays offer detailed information on the history of Boston's geography.
I enjoyed the Prudential Center. Actually did not visit the skywalk, instead I opted to visit the Top of the Hub Restaurant. The view was outstanding and the price of my beverage and tip (7.25) was less expensive than the admission price for the skywalk.(10.50). The restaurant employees were kind enough to let me have free access to roam around the public portion of the restaurant as much as I wanted. They also were pretty knowledgeable about the various sights around the city. The center also has a lively mall on the lower level.
I would not be back there again! The sweet memory given to me with my loved one at that tower will always fresh and sweet. As i could remember the view from every angle on Boston since my last visit there. I would suggest that the visitor to bring the loved ones there minus the yelling and crying minor. Prefect spot.
This gives you a great 360 degree view of Boston. I like that they have all the historic and famous people information on the walls. It's a bit expensive , though. They should add more stuff to see or things to do up there.
Great view of Boston and its surrounding neighborhoods. Nice view of the reflecting pond. Great time to visit during the spring and the summer. That's the only time water is actually in the pond. Great view of Christian science center.
This explains it all........the perfect city view......it is so breathtaking to things from a different angle....and going to the Prudential Center Skywalk Observatory gives you a whole new look on Boston....on the streets life seems to just pass you by, but looking at Boston from the Pru lets you see how bustling life really is....there is so much going on that you cannot see just walking but looking out and down on the city from this experience lets you see it all!! It is a great value for what you get to see..
A great way to see all of Boston at once, especially if you're not at all familiar with the city. Visitors are provided with headsets that explain what the viewer is seeing at particular stations. Not only do they point out places of interest, but they relate a little bit of history associated with each one as well.
The Prudential Center and Skywalk is my favorite place in Boston. When I lived in Boston I went there all the time. Not only is it the best place to get a skytower view of the whole city but its also a great place to simply hang out and shop. Having been completely remodeled in recent years, its really interesting architecturally too.
My girlfriend and I went here over the summer. Once we got up to the floor it was on, we went to go and pay the women at the counter. The price was pretty decent, about $15 per person. But as we were geting our money, she asked us if we were in college. We were, so she ended up dropping the price down to $8 a person. Once we got in we got this little radio like things that allowed us to go to a certain area and listen to the history in that area. For example, we got to a window in wich you could see Fenway Park, and the radio told us all about this history of the park. It was also updated since we wond the World Series. Now, for parents who bring there kids, there is also a Childrens section for each part that you can listen to. Overall this place was a great place to learn more about such a cool city.
