Prudential Center

DISTANCE FROM HOTEL: 5.4 MILES

The Prudential Center is a 23-acre complex situated in the Back Bay District between Boylston Street and Huntington Avenue. The complex contains office buildings, hotels, green space, a shopping mall, and the Prudential office tower. At the base of the tower is a beautiful shopping mall with more than 70 retails stores. The mall walkways are covered with atrium-style glass ceilings that are known as arcades.

Glass covered arcades connect different portions of the complex. The Boylston and Newbury arcades are located near the Boylston Street entrance. The Prudential and Back Bay arcades intersect in a central court. The mall is joined with the Hynes Convention Center and Copley Place via walkways and passages, which is extremely convenient. There is also a public garden near the central court, where free concerts and events take place during summer.

There are many points of interest in or near the Prudential Center, including the Prudential Skywalk, an observatory on the 51th floor, and Top of the Hub, restaurant on the 52nd floor of the central tower. Copley Place is next to Copley Square, where Trinity Church and the Boston Public Library are located. During the New Year's Eve First Night celebration, the Hynes Convention Center and Copley Square are major venues for exhibits and performances. Just to the west is Kenmore Square and historic Fenway Park, to the east is the Public Garden, Cheers Beacon Hill and Boston Common. One block north is the Newbury Street shopping area.

The Prudential Center food court is a very popular place to commence an afternoon of shopping in the mall, and then visit other nearby attractions.
