My day started cloudy and I was travelling the next day so thought I'd miss out, luckily the cloud cleared so I visited. Easy to get to, just a walk through the mall. I thought there would be more up there but it's just a...More

I would've seen something almost identical at Top of the Rock or the Empire State Building. Very expensive admissions fee too. Average-quality restaurant. The only thing I liked was the heights.

The rain cleared to the West by the time we got to the top. As I said, the views were stunning in all directions: only the view towards the North End blocked by the John Hancock building. Two adults, one "child" and one student, we...More

This "tour" offers loads of information with the handheld tour "guides" that are given out. The walkway is wide so we never felt crowded. There is a fun history game that we played more than once, as well as historical facts on reader walls around...More

We were in Boston for half a day, so we were really on the move, with a list of "must do's" -- and the Skywalk Observatory was on the list. We got to it from getting off on one of the hop on/hop off bus...More

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
