For a breathtaking view of the city and surrounding area, take a trip to this Skywalk Observatory, perched on the 50th floor of the soaring Prudential Tower. The windows here offer breathtaking 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. Check website for more.
The Prudential Center is one of the skyscapers in downtown Boston. It's worth going on the top and seeing the whole city. The view is unbelievable. You can get a great impression of the city. The prices are acceptable and defenitly worthed for what is there to be offeres.
Historical display/reenactment plus view of the city give a non-resident a feel for the layout and significance of landmarks. Do not go on a cloudy day and the best time of day is late afternoon when city signs, or important land marks are lit up.
It costs $9.50 (as of April 29, 2005 - not $2 like someone previously mentioned), but the upside is that you can basically stay and walk around as long as you want, and take all the photos you want of the amazing view, and still have the option of a guided tour using a handheld radio device.
Again, we had CityPasses, so we got in quickly. They gave us the headsets, and we began our tour. The only problem I had is that I forgot my binoculars, and so I couldn't see everything-but that was my own fault! It was fun-but if you have poor eyesight, bring some good binoculars!
For $2 you can get all the history of Boston at your own pace. Or, you can just look at the views! Amazing views (It's Boston. That should tell you how amazing it is!) Plus, great history! The headsets have an adult version and a kids version so there is fun for everyone. I did the adults version and I was entertained and informed - not bored for one minute. The best part is, if you want to know the history of Fenway Park and not Back Bay, you can! You hear the history at your own pace, in your own order, skipping as much or a little as you want.
