Prudential Center

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by notso62 on September 24, 2005

The view from the Pru (what Bostonian's call the Prudential Center) is simply spectacular. Boston's second tallest building has the city's highest public observation deck. An accelerated elevator whisks visitors to the top where they enter the "Skywalk". Here they pay approximately $10 to walk around floor and gaze out the unobstructed picture windows. There is also a plethora of information on the guideboards on the inside walls to help explain to visitors what exactly they are seeing in their birds-eye view.

For an extra nominal fee, you can get a recorded personal tour set up to guide you around as you look at the views. This is highly recommended and worth the extra $4--the tour was both imformative and entertaining.

If you're not the type entertained souly by an excellent view, you can head up to the bar/restaurant one floor up called "The Top of the Hub". Views from this restaurant are spectacular, but unfortunately you cannot reserve window seats. Still, for a good martini and a great view; it cannot be beat!

There's lots to see hundreds of feet above the rest of Boston. For an unforgetable experience definitely put this on the "must-do" list.
