With prestigious universities including Harvard and MIT, historical attractions, and a huge nightlife scene, visiting Cambridge is a must for anyone traveling through the Boston area. Enjoy the boutique shops in Harvard Square, or head to Central Square for bars featuring live bands every night of the week.
Here are a few additional suggestions of things to do in Cambridge:
-Charles River: Take a walk along this historic river, which has plenty of paths for biking, skating, and walking.
-Harvard Museum of National History: Learn more about dinosaurs, meteorites, and minerals, through the entertaining exhibits on display at this museum.
-Longfellow National Historic Site: This site, the home of poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow while he taught at Harvard in the mid 19th-century, has plenty of artifacts related to Longfellow and even a few related to George Washington.
Try to take advantage of at least one of the 90+ events that are held in Cambridge annually, from small art gatherings to huge downtown parades. Sample the best of the local cuisine during the Taste of Cambridge in June, enjoy live German music and delicious brews during Oktoberfest, or bring your kids to enjoy the rides and games that are part of the Cambridge Carnival in September.
Get the most out of your time in Cambridge with a vacation rental. Rent a luxury apartment close to the historic sites throughout the city, or book a spacious condo that can accommodate even the largest of families.
