Cambridge office For Tourism
You never forget your first visit to Cambridge. A mere 2-mile jaunt from Boston, MA and just across the Charles River, it is a thriving metropolis unlike any other.
Often referred to as “Boston’s Left Bank,” in Cambridge you can have the time of your life while changing the world. This is a city where Old World meets New Age in a mesmerizing blend of history and technology. Where else can you rub tweedy elbows with status-quo-challenging scholars, drop into a hypnotic African drumming dance class, or scoot into a bar for the best bacon-topped burger of your life? (Seriously, you’ll dine well here in the land of cult-worthy restaurants.)
No matter which neighborhood you find yourself in, Cambridge’s scene teems with eclectic energy. Home to two world-renowned universities — Harvard University and MIT — we are just a short walk or subway ride away from Boston. Here, there are plenty of great minds, but more importantly, good times.
After all, Cambridge is a place where all are welcome to pledge geekdom to anything and everything. Bauhaus architecture, antique bikes, craft cocktails, sriracha pickles, glass blowing, international law, post-rock cover bands, and plenty of hidden gems you’ll brag to your friends about for years to come.
Our forefathers would be most proud, don’t you think?
