The Prudential Observatory Reaches New Heights in Boston Travel

Article and Photo by Eric H., at

The Prudential Building's 50th Floor Skywalk Observatory is one of Boston's more interesting tourist attractions, providing sweeping panoramic views of the Boston area.

From this height, Boston looks like a miniature toy village, including views of Boston Harbor, the Charles River, Fenway Park, the even-taller Hancock Tower and the outlying suburbs. And you thought you had great views from your third-floor walk-up attic!

Having this type of view from far above makes great sense in a city like Boston where the diverse neighborhoods filled with fascinating architecture really come to life. To make more sense of it all, visitors can utilize a personal audio system that educates the listener on Boston's historic and cultural points of interests at designated sections of the Skywalk.

The Skywalk Observatory is open seven days a week and costs, at this writing, $11.00 for adults, $9.00 for seniors and students with IDs, and $7.50 for children under 12.

It's all a grand Boston travel experience, unless, of course, you have acrophobia!
