Cambridge Travel Guide: 335 reviews and 653 photos

Located across the Charles River from downtown Boston, Cambridge is first and foremost known as the home of Harvard University. Most people who travel to Boston will plan on spending at least an afternoon in Cambridge to tour around the campus, but there actually is more to this charming city than just the university.

With Cambridge's large student population (Cambridge is also home to the Masschusetts Institute of Technology, or MIT) come many book stores, bars and cafes, and the city takes pride in its harmonious blend of multi-culture, classic culture and counter-culture. All this and more truly make it worth going across the bridge, no trip to Boston would be complete without it!

    Hi Isa, Now I know what it looks like, many of the younger executives were sent to the Harvard Business Management Course, 3 months of work in beautiful Boston.

    What a fantastic page you have here! I've had so many business meetings in Boston over the years that I can't count them all - and I never once looked around Cambridge. If only I had known what I was missing!
