Cambridge

School is now back in session after summer break in most spots of the country so I thought I'd highlight a city which houses two of our most famous ones. The "People's Republic of Cambridge" houses two of the most prestigious universities in the United States, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University. On our spring trip to Boston, we had a free morning so we decided to go see Cambridge.




I had never been to Cambridge. And I was anxious to see what Harvard was like since it is probably one of the most, if not the most, famous college in America. 



Cambridge is a very pleasant town of brick buildings, bistros, pubs and churches. I think it was one of my favorite stops on our Boston trip. 













Mr. UR easily found street parking and we spent a spring morning walking around Harvard Square .There were lots of people out enjoying the good weather. Then we found John Harvard's Brewery and Ale House on a side street near the square. Good food - stone fired pizza for me and a german dish for him. We crossed the street to visit Harvard Yard which was busy with students, professors and visitors on the beautiful day. And then we were off to Boston. Easy peasy.


If you're visiting the Boston area and you want a fun and quick visit to a university town with some history thrown in,  give Cambridge a try.

  1. When I was in high school, attending a certain university in Cambridge was a dream of mine. I knew it was a long shot but talked my family into touring the campus. That town is so charming, even if you're not a student.

    1. Oh, I agree Michele - just loved it. And charming is a great word for it.
