Cambridge Attractions & Things to Do in Cambridge

Attractions In Cambridge, MA

There is no shortage of fun things to do in Cambridge, Massachusetts. After all, this buzzing university town has been around for nearly four centuries, leading the charge of innovation since the 1600s . Today, it's home to a clutch of world-class restaurants, museums, popular sights, and major landmarks.
 
Whether you stay near Freepoint Hotel Cambridge, Tapestry Collection in West Cambridge or venture out to one of the charming town plazas- Inman Square, Central Square, Harvard Square, or Davis Square - you'll quickly get a sense of the dynamic neighborhood fabric of Cambridge.
 
In addition to dining at Freepoint Hotel Cambridge, Tapestry Collection, guests will discover that eating out in Cambridge is better than ever, thanks to an influx of international cuisine and acclaimed chefs.
 
Sample an award-winning meringue cloud, or tuck in for a five-course, prix fixe menu. Either way, our list of favorite restaurants and cafes in Cambridge won't disappoint.
 
Cambridge shopping is just as exciting. Cambridge town centers, including Harvard Square and Inman Square, are home to a dizzying number of specialty and boutique shops. Here, you'll find the perfect souvenir for your family back home, or walk away with a memorable keepsake you won't find anywhere else in the world, like a 19th-century map of Boston or a Harvard crested-sweater.
 
For the best in Cambridge culture, spend some time perusing the city's many art galleries and museums. A large population of professors and studious academics (after all, MIT, Tufts, and Harvard campuses are all within arm's reach) live on the so-called left bank of the Charles, meaning our bookstores, cafes, and cultural institutions are world-class.
 
It's quick and easy to visit downtown Boston from Cambridge-less than 15 minutes across the bridge by car-but you don't need the Freedom Trail or Boston Public Library for an infusion of history and landmarks. Cambridge sights are as compelling as those in our sister city.
 
Whether you're here to check out a preeminent college campus or spend an evening bar-hopping, you'll have no trouble deciding what to do in Cambridge.
