Located on the 50th floor of the Prudential Tower, the observatory has the most spectacular views of Boston, Cambridge, and the suburbs. Imagine "on a clear day" you can see Cape Cod. You will find comfortable chairs just for enjoying conversations and a prolonged visit including interactive exhibits on the city's history. The center opened in 1965 and was the city's tallest building at 52 stories until the 60 story Hancock tower was completed eleven years later. The center is made up of mostly office space, but does have a complex that includes 50 unique and smart shops. The "Pru" is also home to numerous restaurants, including the Top of the Hub on the Top Floor, several apartment buildings and is connected to the Hynes Convention Center and the Sheraton Boston Hotel. You can walk 360 degrees around the Skywalk and keep your eyes on the huge windows. The windows are marked to aid you in locating some of the city's well-know features. The Skywalk is indoors so there is no outdoor balcony.
