Cambridge is a town that has something for everyone with arts, music, entertainment, education, recreation and more. Located just outside the Boston downtown area, Cambridge is a much desired location to live and it has plenty of rental options to choose from. It is home to esteemed education institutions such as Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, making it no surprise that some of the world’s top minds and historical figures had once passed through here.
In Cambridge, the locals’ preferred modes of transportation are biking and walking. With all the hot spots in close proximity and plenty of bike paths to get around town, it’s hard for one to not get out and about.
There are a few local parks and the Harvard yard for people who enjoy the outdoors. Another notable place of interest would be the Mount Auburn Cemetery. Founded in 1831, it is “America’s first garden cemetery” and serves as an arboretum.
Cambridge is also home to lots of museums and art galleries, many of which can be found on the Harvard and MIT campuses.
The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority provides plenty of public transportation across town and into downtown Boston. There are five subway stations along the Red line serving Cambridge, to include: Alewife, Porter Square, Harvard Square, Central Square, and Kendall Square/MIT. The commuter rail runs through Cambridge at Porter Square and the green line can be found at the Lechmere station.
Cambridge borders the towns of Belmont, Arlington, and Somerville, as well as Boston to the south.
