Living in Cambridge

The City of Cambridge has several different neighborhoods, each with its own special appeal. Whether you prefer the night life and college life in Harvard Square or the privacy of a single family home in Cambridgeport, Cambridge is a city of neighborhoods with a lot to offer. Residents enjoy the city's proximity to the river and 115 acre Alewife Reservation year round. Serious rowers, kayakers, canoe enthusiasts, stand up paddle boarders and recreational boaters take to the water in the warmer months and until the river freezes the local crew clubs use the river on even the coldest of winter mornings to maintain their stride for the annual Head of the Charles Regatta.

Cambridge Activities

The banks are alive with the clatter of rollerblades, baby strollers, and cyclist who share the paved path which is part of a larger loop from Charlestown to Watertown, over to Brighton and onto Boston proper. The city itself is home to MIT and Harvard which provide their own cultural enrichment to their neighborhoods. Pranksters will get a good laugh at the MIT Museum and the more cerebral will appreciate the natural history collection at Harvard. Local college sporting events include hockey, football and lacrosse.

Easy Access to the City

Professional sports are only a T ride away at the TD Garden. To get a true sense of the neighborhoods of Cambridge take the time to enjoy a hot cup of coffee or sandwich in one of the shops in each of the neighborhoods. Local favorites include Voltage in Kendall Square, Sweet in Harvard Square, Lyndells in Central Square, and Hi-Rise in Porter Square. Cambridge is not just for people who work in Boston.


With easy access to Route 128 the Alewife Brook neighborhood of Cambridge is a great option.
