Countless communities merge here at Central Square, where nightly live music at the intersection of Mass. Ave. and Brookline St. inspires crowds and Prohibition-reminiscent mixed drinks satiate eclectic groups of nightcrawlers. Also here are a truly unique mix of historic churches, a Junior Mints factory, and an assortment of restaurants, boutiques and startup offices.
The heart of Cambridge, Harvard Square is one of the most popular – and the most charming – areas in town. Load up on new reads from our favorite local booksellers, like the Grolier Poetry Bookshop, Schoenhof’s Foreign Books and Harvard Book Store, or take a guided tour of Harvard’s ivy-draped campus. Don’t leave without spending some time people-watching, with buskers, art-house theater shows, and plenty of gathering spots ideally suited for enjoying the scene.
Come for the brews, stay for the uniquely local vibe. Inman Square is a robust residential area home to Brazilian and Portuguese communities, as well as small businesses, secondhand shops, experimental galleries, and academics and young professionals. Please your palette with an array of ethnic meals available here and, of course, a selection of beer.
Kendall Square is a hotbed of brainiac activity, home to biotech companies, Internet giants including Microsoft and Google, and, of course, MIT. The area’s dining scene is thriving, too – but first work up an appetite touring MIT’s world-famous architecture, with a stop at Frank Gehry's Stata Center and Fumihiko Maki's transparent Media Lab before grabbing a delicious, well-deserved bite.
Follow the signs to Porter Square – more specifically, follow the Gift of the Wind, a 46-foot stainless steel sculpture that serves as this commercial neighborhood’s focal point. Meet local students from Lesley University and Harvard Law School here, where local gems include a Japantown mall with an impressive food court, a live music venue, and a range of culinary delights (have you tried Ethiopian cuisine yet?) scattered along Mass. Ave.
