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.
