John Hancock Observatory

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by aussiemate on August 7, 2001

High in the sky, the John Hancock Building boasts that it is the best place to see Boston. At 740 feet above the heart of Boston, the building is the tallest one in all of New England. It is also well-know for its asthetically-pleasing architectural design. It's a great place during the day for families, tourists, or couples. We went up during New Year's when snow blanketed everything, and it was beautiful!

Be sure to pop your ears after the speedy ride up 60 floors. Enjoy the breathtaking view of downtown Boston, but don't ignore the Observatory exhibits and interactive quizzes and games (for kids).

If you are planning to see lots of Boston attractions, you should buy a CityPass. It gets you into the John Hancock Observatory and five other attractions for $30.25 for adults, $14.00 for youths aged 12-17 and $22.25 for seniors.
