Things to Do in Cambridge

Things to do in Cambridge, Massachusetts

Looking for some exciting things to do near your Cambridge home? Our list below will help you figure out how to spend an exciting day in one of America’s oldest and most historic towns.

Harvard University

Harvard is the oldest university in the United States, founded in 1636, and with this comes so many attractions that you won’t want to miss out on. Not only are there places on campus to tour, but Harvard Square has shops, restaurants, theatres, museums, and so much more. Harvard Square is a place where you can spend the whole day and never be short on things to do and places to see. Museums ranging from art to archaeology and ethnology, a theatre for anything you would want to see, and campus tours to get all the history of Harvard are just a few of the things you can do on and  near this beautiful campus.

Charles River Boat Cruises

You can board one of the many boats that will take you on a ride along the Charles River. To be educated and entertained simultaneously you can take a tour and see the historical and cultural sights of Cambridge. You can also choose to take an architecture cruise or a sunset cruise. No matter what fits your schedule and floats your boat, you can’t go wrong with one of these cruises.

Museum of Science

The Museum of Science offers so many amazing opportunities, you’ll have to see how much you can fit into one day! You can swim with the world’s largest shark (safely, might I add), explore coral reefs, see live presentations on so many different topics, and so much more. There are different events and presentations going on year round, so there will always be something to entertain, intrigue, and educate!

Mount Auburn Cemetery

If you think that this is your ordinary cemetery, you’re wrong. This cemetery is not only a cemetery, but it is a National Historic landmark complete with an outdoor museum of art and architecture, and a botanical garden. With plenty of history, a small inner trail and large outer trail for walking, wonderful wildlife, a beautiful garden, and so much more, are all of things that make this cemetery a must see stop in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
