The View from Above

Something I love about living in the city is you can always find higher ground. Yeah sure you can go do the Skywalk at the Prudential Center but there are also a million other views out there. One of the things I always miss when summer is over is roof top bars. There are plenty to choose from some of my favorites include the Atlantic Beer Garden, trust me I get it its down in the seaport district and is a pain to get to, however being on the south side of the city does provide some pretty amazing views if you sit up on the deck! Some other standouts in the city, The Colonnade Hotel, it has a pool enough said. Legal Harbor side, the Roof top at the Revere Hotel and two of my other favorites. Rooftop bars are fun and the Skywalk observatory is a tourist trap but Boston’s best kept secret for amazing views is the Custom House Observation Deck. The old Custom House, now a Marriott Hotel will let you go up to the observation deck for $4.00 (cheaper than the Skywalk observatory) and the views are amazing! I went last summer and snapped a view shots!


I seem to have lost my photos from the other side which offers views of the skyscrapers that dominate the north end. If you have a free afternoon I highly recommend taking the trip!

Now that last view I have is newly discovered and unfortunately you won’t be able to come see if for yourself, but pictures are the next best thing right? The views from my new apartment honestly are a huge part of what made me settle on this place! You may not find the exact view but you can find views in Kenmore square! I personally am a sucker for a good picture of the Citgo sign all lit up at night. I hope you go outside last night and checked out the sunset, because it was amazing whether you were on a rooftop, walking home from work or just peaking out a window. Beauty always follows the storm, I try to keep things light here but this weekend our country experienced some pretty scary things, but I believe that good things must follow, we must make them happen. Be nice to someone hold the elevator, offer up your seat on the T, just smile more. Yesterday was rainy and stormy here in Boston but then we experienced a beautiful sunset. Always look for the beauty that follows the storm.
