CAMBRIDGE: A unique cultural community that blends old and new.
Settled over 400 years ago, the city of Cambridge continues to charm with old-world architecture while birthing many of world’s newest ideas. Surrounded by natural beauty and bursting with cultural experiences, the pace of life in Cambridge is invigorating and stimulating without the hustle of a major metropolis.
WHAT TO EXPECT: European-style neighborhoods bordered by natural beauty.
Cambridge is one of the nation’s most walkable cities, and each area has a distinctive feel—from cozy pub chats at Inman Square bars to the café society that spills out into Harvard Square’s streets. The steady flow of the Charles River and the gentle sway of oak and maple trees create an aura of natural calm throughout.
THE LIFESTYLE: An active way of life for body and mind.
For every season, Cambridge provides a new activity: summer sails into the harbor, late fall bike rides along Memorial Drive, ice skating on crisp winter weekends, and a spring round of golf on the course beside Fresh Pond. Conversations with neighbors and a constantly changing roster of cultural engagements keep the minds of Cantabrigians sharp.
UNEXPECTED APPEAL: A cutting-edge tech community and several sustainability initiatives.
A slew of openings centered around Randolph Street and Fulton Market make restaurant- and bar-hopping in the untrodden territory a nightly possibility. You can go from taqueria to futuristic cocktail lounge, sushi bar to a secret underground speakeasy, whole-animal butcher shop to wine tasting, burger bar to a champagne salon—and the neighborhood’s evolution is far from finished.
THE MARKET: Elegant single-family homes, thoughtfully-designed condos, and private estates.
The neighborhoods in Cambridge abound with historic buildings that remain as gracious single-family homes. A new crop of modern condos line up around town alongside distinctive private estates.
YOU'LL FALL IN LOVE WITH: The culture that colleges bring to town.
The vibrant campus communities of Harvard and MIT attract a constant influx of public lectures, exhibits and art installations, film screenings, and more. Cambridge is also home to two culinary schools and a repertory theatre company. There’s always something just around the corner to spark the minds and senses of Cambridge residents.
