Admire Sweeping Views of Boston at the Skywalk Observatory
When Skywalk Observatory says that it’s the best place in Boston to "see it all", it means that literally. The 360-degree observation deck at the top of the Pru offers a bird’s eye view that, when the weather is right, lets you see for a hundred miles around.
Gaze right down into Fenway Park, or catch a glimpse of the Hancock Tower that you could ever get from the Back Bay. Track the rowboats gliding down the Charles with the MIT campus in the background, or peer at tourists on the Swan Boats at the Commons. In addition, the Dreams of Freedom Museum offers visitors an overview of the city’s history (making this a nice place to start a trek down the Freedom Trail), and the Wings Over Boston multimedia theater experience provides a look at Boston’s prominent place in the nation’s architectural and cultural history. Discounts are available for students, teachers, and military.
