    The Tall Ship Boston

    In summer, this spot is so magical to watch sunset over the Boston skyline from Easter across the harbor on a boat with a drink in hand

    Granite Links

    Technically in Quincy, MA but perfect location with outdoor bar/patio…beautifully maintained golf course (non members) can go and sunsets and views for days! Also a perfect spot for the 4th of July Fireworks too without having to deal with downtown Boston.

    Seaport Steps

    Love the setting and the view of FiDi’s high rises juxtaposed with Boston Harbor — it’s perfection!

    Charles River Esplanade

    Charles River Esplanade has great views of Cambridge and perfect backdrop for the sunset with sailboats

    BU Bridge

    The sun sets opposite the city skyline, but on good days the city skyline still puts on a light show

    View Boston at the Prudential Center: Rooftop bar & state-of-the-art observation deck

    It’s not free but it’s on the 52th floor so it’s naturally one of the best places to see the sun setting (with a drink 🥂)

    Fifth floor outdoor garage at the Museum of Science

    This is one of Boston’s best-kept secrets IMO 🤫 Go to the garage elevator and take it up to the fifth floor and enjoy an amazing sunset view over the Charles 🌅

    Deer Island

    Missed ‘that’s not the esplanade’ part! 😂 Another option is Deer Island, you get a great view of the Boston skyline from there, perfect for picnics, walks and biking.
