Cambridge Travel Guide

On the other side of the Charles River from Boston is one of Massachusetts’ brainiest cities, Cambridge. Home to both Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge is more than just a home to academics. The city is also known as a growing hub for startups, businesses, and biotechnology.

Things to Do in Cambridge

If you’re visiting Cambridge, of course you should visit Harvard’s campus. Check out the Harvard Art Museums. Fogg Museum has art from the middle ages through present day, Busch-Reisinger Museum has art from German-speaking countries, and the Arthur M. Sackler Museum features Asian art. Off-campus, there is still plenty to do and see in the city. Visit the Longfellow House, former home to poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Head along the Charles River for a stroll or grab a bite at any of Cambridge’s unique restaurants.

Hang out on Harvard Square, the center of Cambridge business life, or wander next door to the iconic Harvard Yard. Cambridge tends to be full of students, professors, and creative, young professionals.

Best Time to Visit Cambridge

The best time to visit Cambridge is in the summer or fall for the best weather. Fall’s beautiful changing leaves are a definite draw to the city.
