Cambridge is affectionately referred to as the “City of Squares” for its many squares where residents work, live and play, such as Harvard Square, Inman Square, Kendall Square, Porter Square and Central Square. Each square has its own look, personality and unique set of establishments.
Harvard Square boasts historic red brick walkways and tree-lined blocks full of restaurants, shops, museums, entertainment centers and bookstores. The nearby Central Square is teeming with eclectic restaurants, bars, live music venues and small theaters. Kendall Square has been called “the most innovative square mile on the planet” for its high concentration of startups, tech companies and biotech firms. Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, General Electric, IBM, Verizon and Yahoo are just a few examples.
Cambridge is an easy commute from downtown Boston via the “T” and the bus. Kendall Square and Central Square are within walking distance of Boston, just over the Charles River.
