The Travel Book – The Skywalk Observatory, Boston

When you go to a new country or city you always want to reach as high as you can to get a good view of the surroundings and to see how it looks from above. It does not matter how tall, wide, or close to the water a city may be every person always wants to see it from a height and in Boston you can in a great little place called The Skywalk Observatory.


The Skywalk Observatory is based on Boylston Street in Boston near Back Bay and is situated in The Prudential Center. It is opened every day for 12 hours between the times of 10am – 22pm. It is one of the cities most popular tourist attractions and it is hard not to see why.

The Skywalk Observatory offers a 360 degree view of the city with views of up to 100 miles away – it is a great way to see the sights from the sky such as Fenway Park, MIT, Harvard University and The Boston Common.

The tickets for the Observatory are $20 for adults, $16 for Senior Citizens and $14 for Children – these may sound a bit pricey but for that price it includes an Audio tour, entrance to the Dreams of Freedom Museum and the Multimedia Movie Theatre.


One of the best times to visit the Observatory is at Sunset as you get amazing views of the sun setting over Massachusetts and on the website it gives you the information every day as to when the sun is predicted to set.

I really enjoyed when I visited here and as you can tell by the photographs we went to the location at night and we still got a great view.
