Attractions

Boston and Cambridge are two of America’s oldest cities, yet with their high concentration of colleges and universities, they are also very young cities. The greater Boston area has the highest concentration of institutions of higher learning anywhere in North America, and Cambridge has the highest concentration of bookstores anywhere in North America. Below are some attractions that these cities have to offer.

Universities

We are within walking distance of Harvard University, and Bus 64 goes to MIT. If you know your destination at either of these institutions, you can use online interactive maps to find it at Harvard and MIT. Tours of Harvard start at Harvard Subway Station.

Museums

Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts is a world-class museum with a well-rounded collection.

Close by is the Gardner Museum, an interesting collection housed in a garden-like setting.

Harvard University is home to the Harvard Art Museums, which includes the Fogg collection of Western art and the Sackler collection of Asian art. Further north is the Harvard Museum of Natural History, which houses the Ware collection of Glass Flowers. Close by is the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology.

Historic sites

Many of Boston’s historic sites are along the Freedom Trail, highlights of which are the U.S.S. Constitution, Old North Church, Faneuil Hall, and the Old State House.

Other sites of interest can be found on this interactive map and sidebar of Boston. Old Town Trollies offers tours of Boston, and you can hop on and off the trolly all day.

Nearby Restaurants

One of our favorite restaurants is Lê’s, a Vietnamese restaurant at 36 Dunster Street in a building called The Garage in Harvard Square. They sell delicious pho, beef noodle soup, in small, medium, and large sizes at good prices.

Allston Village, at Harvard Avenue and Brighton Avenue, has an incredible variety of restaurants offering the food of many nationalities. No wonder that it is a favorite hangout spot for Boston University students. There is a city parking lot next to Blanchard’s Liquors.
