The Best Places to Catch a View of Boston
Walking along Memorial Drive on the bike path is a great place to get a view of the city. It builds in layers from the townhouses of Beacon Hill up to the skyscrapers of the Hancock Tower and the Prudential Center. All points along the route will give you new perspective of the city. On the east side of the city, another great vantage point for taking in the views is the Harbor Walk. Winding through the city's waterfront neighborhoods, the path allows the public to connect with the cleaned and restored Boston Harbor. The section in South Boston and Fort Point Channel takes you along some of the city's best views of sparkling high rises, with plenty of good restaurants to stop in along the way.
