Welcome to Cambridge, MA!

Cambridge, situated across the Charles River from Boston, is most famous for two educational powerhouses—Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.). Founded in 1636, Harvard is the oldest university in the United States. Harvard is home to three exceptional art museums—including the Fogg Art Museum, Busch-Reisinger Museum and Arthur M. Sackler Museum—showcasing everything from Chinese and Korean ceramics to German expressionism. M.I.T. has a history of leading the world in technology, displayed by over 50 Nobel Prize winners as current or former alumni. Many visitors enjoy taking a self-guided tour of Cambridge by following the historic markers that line the streets. Cruise the Charles River on a riverboat or visit the eclectic and multicultural neighborhoods of this invigorating city. Cambridge offers hotels to suit a range of budgets, and visitors seeking a more intimate encounter with local hospitality have several bed and breakfast accommodations to choose from.
