Lots of history here at Harvard University. Place yourself right in the middle of the square, soak up all of the action and start exploring. The roads shoot out in all different directions, so it can be fun to just explore the area! The buildings and grassy quads can be quite peaceful at times, and busy with tourists and students at others.

The illustrious Massachusetts Institute of Technology is an integral part of East Cambridge and its growth. The buildings and campus are more integrated with the neighborhoods than the heart of Harvard's Campus, but the grandiose campus does not disappoint. This campus also has the benefit of being on the Charles River, leaving some absolutely stunning views from the buildings.
