The wait is almost over.View Boston will officially open to the public on Thursday, June 15.
Here’s what you can expect from the new observation deck and immersive attraction located on the top three floors of the Prudential Tower.
Enter the Pru and head to the check in point, near Blue Bottle and Saks. You’ll ride an elevator up to the 52nd floor to see “The View.”
The indoor panoramic level features truly unbeatable views of the city. There are “Virtual Viewers” available to allow all visitors to learn more about the landmarks and attractions they’re seeing, plus stationary models that identify major landmarks on each corner (think: the State House, Hatch Shell, and Trinity Church).
On the 51st floor, guests will feel the rush of the city on “The Cloud Terrace” — a 360 degree, open-air roof deck. This level is also home to the Stratus lounge with indoor + outdoor seating options.
From the 50th floor — the third stop of the experience — guests can explore “Boston 365,” an interactive 3D model of the city that uses projectors to highlight Boston’s seasons and annual celebrations. Around the corner, view the immersive film and pick up souvenirs from the gift shop.
Reservations can be made for The Beacon, the bistro restaurant located on the 50th floor. We recommend sipping on the Crosswind and Life, Death, and Taxes.
Pro tip: Throughout the experience, save your favorite locations, landmarks, and attractions with the code on your pass card. Each item added with help build a custom itinerary for exploring the city based on your interests. City Editor Jess downloaded the historian itinerary, and City Editor Sara got the perfect plan for a tree hugger.
