The Skywalk Observatory
is the best way to start one’s tour of Boston. It is situated on the 50th floor of the 52 storey Prudential Building in the heart of Boston’s Back Bay.
From this fantastic vantage point 750 feet in the air you can get to know all the Boston neighborhoods through an antenna audio tour which explains all of Boston’s interesting facts and historical landmarks. Visitors of Boston like to start their tour of Boston here. After hearing the audio guide visitors decide which parts of Boston interest them and where they want to go to visit and see close-up.
In the Skywalk Theater one can see “Wings over Boston” which is a film that takes you inside the city and should not be missed.
If you have a citypass ticket then you should show it at the entrance and you should be able to skip the line if there is one. If you don’t have a citypass ticket you will have to stand in line and pay the full price of $12 for adults and $8 for youths.
The Skywalk Observatory is open daily from 10am to 9.30pm. If one manages to get to the Skywalk Observatory at sunset then the views are really at their best, the lights are beginning to come on and with the backdrop of the setting sun, the views can be quite breathtaking.
The winter times may vary but anyway it is always a good idea to check in advance because the Observatory might be closed due to weather conditions or business or private functions. The Skywalk Observatory is closed on Christmas day.
