Pru-rific

For anybody coming to Boston, there are two buildings that stand out: the John Hancock building and the Prudential building. Though be careful, if you’re in Beantown, don’t say Prudential, just call it “the Pru.”

On the 50th floor of the Pru there is an observation deck called the “Skywalk Observatory” and its windows circle 360 degrees–in my opinion, this observation deck offers the best view of Boston.

One of the great qualities of the Skywalk is its availability. They’re open seven days a week from 10:00am-10:00pm during the summer hours (April- November) and for their winter hours  (November- March) they’re also open seven days a week from 10:00 am- 8:00 pm (but not on Christmas day).

Admission varies: Adults are $12.00, children under 12 are $8.00, seniors (62+) are $10.00, and if you have a valid college ID it’s also $10.00.  These rates include an audio tour, a multi-media theater show, and a Dreams of Freedom museum. Active duty military and those with a dependent ID card receive free admission, as well as those with a valid MTA card.

The Skywalk is a thrill to go to because the elevator you take up 50 floors is one of the fastest you’ll ever be in. And since nobody in their right mind would deliberately walk up 50 flights of stairs, these speedy elevators make this attraction absolutely handicap accessible.
