    Great ideas! I personally like the Boston Harbor Islands for nice summer days, which is something fun and different to do with different views of the city.

    I haven’t been to the Skywalk, but have been to the restaurant above, Top of the Hub. You can get a drink at the bar and skip the admission price to the observatory and get the same views with a beverage in hand 🙂
