    The Skywalk Observatory on the 50th floor of the Prudential Center is by far a must-visit when in town, whether you're a tourist or resident.

    Tip: From the main shops floor, you have to go down an escalator to take an elevator to the 50th floor where you can purchase tickets before entering. The skywalk itself is pretty empty, just the perimeter of the floor but it offers breathtaking 360 degree views of Boston and surrounding areas, even further on a clear day. Definitely worth the admission fee that's around $15.

    Awesome views! I would recommend any tourist or visitor here! Prices ok, but is worth the money. Views from the 52nd, (I believe!) floor of the Prudential! Through the glass windows, you can see all of Boston, including Logan Airport, Downtown, Boston Common and Back Bay! Views of Fenway Park were awesome! You can even see surrounding towns in Greater Boston. Cambridge and Charlestown are also seen across the Charles River. I could even see south if Boston toward Dorchester! 360 degree views of all directions in Boston! We also saw tourists from...Read More

    Great view of Boston, but recommend going to the lounge a floor below and getting a drink or some food with the same view, saving admission fee

    This is a must-see if you are visiting Boston. The view from the top is simply fabulous. Go there around sunset so you get the day-time and the night-time views because they are different and worth checking out.

Check out the Prudential Observatory if you are anywhere nearby! It is totally worth the visit, for anyone! City views astonishing!
