Prudential Center-Skywalk Observatory:
Boston, MA

The Skywalk Observatory in Boston is located on the 50th floor of the Prudential Shopping Center in Boston. I hadn’t expected the Observatory to be all that interesting, but I was pleasantly surprised. Since Boston is a beautiful city with the Charles River running alongside it and mountains completing the pretty picture from afar, the Skywalk Observatory, with its 360 degree views of Boston, was actually very enjoyable.

In addition to Audio guides available for visitors to listen to in a variety of languages with explanations of the view, history and culture of Boston, there are interactive displays and informative displays with information also relating to the fascinating history and culture in Boston.
