Things to do in Cambridge
Welcome to Cambridge
Situated right across the Charles River from Boston proper and best known for the prestigious Harvard University, visiting the campus is one of the best things to do in Cambridge. And you don’t have to be enrolled to appreciate Harvard Yard's red-brick buildings; wander among Harvard Square's restaurants, cafés, bookstores, and shops; nor to visit the on-site museums including Harvard Museum of Natural History, the three Harvard Art Museums, and the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology. The neighboring MIT campus, plus landmarks such as the Longfellow House (Washington’s Headquarters), are also worth discovering.
