The city of Cambridge has the distinctly unique privilege of being Massachusetts's historical, cultural, educational, and innovation epicenter, making it the hottest living destination in the entire state. Entrepreneurs, artists, and innovators of all sizes congregate in Cambridge, and their influence transforms the city into a work of art. Cambridge's nickname is "The City of Squares." The city is divided up into thirteen different neighborhood districts, and many of them are punctuated by a famous cultural or business "square." This is the location of the nation's top-ranking Ivy League universities, Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

The city's beating heart is its artistic community; it's blood are their creatives juices that paint, decorate, and adorn every part of Cambridge. You can't walk a few steps with bumping into an impressive mural or sculpture, as shown by the city's public art map. A series of art galleries litter the city's streets, featuring artwork from far away and local artists alike. Highlights include the quirky Out of the Blue Gallery and the classic Mobilia Gallery. Those seeking performance should no doubt check out the American Repertory Theatre (ART), the city's crown jewel of the theatre scene.

Restaurants

Whether you're looking for kitschy cafés, quaint bakeries, or powerhouse restaurants, Cambridge is guaranteed to leave you with your mouth watering.

Recommended cafés, of Cambridge's many, include the 1369 Café, which features an expansive tea selection, and the Voltage Coffee and Art, a place that's equal parts café and art gallery. Feel free to explore Cambridge's other cafés by picking a direction and walking fifteen feet.

Culinary capstones of Cambridge include the Hungry Mother, a restaurant dedicated to sophisticated southern cuisine, the Hi-Rise Bakery, an overwhelming feast for sight, taste, and smell, the Summer Shack, one of Massachusetts's premier seafood restaurants, and Puritan and Company, a gourmet restaurant with unforgettable French dishes.

Transportation

The premier method of transportation in Cambridge and to adjacent areas is through the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) subway and bus systems. Residents of Boston and Cambridge should pick up a Charlie Card, a card that users can put money on to use public transportation.

In prices ranging from $2 and up, Charlie Card holders may use any bus from Boston's enormous fleet of public buses or make use of their expansive subway "T" system. The price paid per ride does not vary based distance traveled.

Cambridge houses several T stops, including Kendall Square, Harvard Square, Porter Square, and more. Taxis are also popular in the city. Fortunately, Cambridge is very walkable, so paid transportation is not always necessary.

Shopping

Representative of its diverse population, Cambridge's retail experience oozes as much style as it does variety.

Prefer clothes shopping? Cambridge has you covered with their one-of-a-kind Garment District. Not an actual "district," the store not only features heaping mountains of unique clothing, but they also feature an epic event called "By the Pound."

Those uninterested in clothes should check out Nomad, a multi-cultural "flea market" type store, Black Ink, an eclectic mix of home office supplies and decor, and Anime Zakka, an exuberant store that boasts exciting items from Japanese pop culture.
