You’ll never feel boxed in by the “City of Squares” – welcome to Cambridge!
- Jogging Trails
- College Town
Cambridge’s unique position of being Massachusetts’s historical, cultural, educational, and an innovative epicenter makes this historic town a great place to live. All walks of life congregate to Cambridge because of its charm, colleges, and proximity to modern amenities. Cambridge’s nickname is the “City of Squares,” since the most popular commercial districts are located at the intersections or “squares.” Kendall Square can be compared to Silicon Valley, due to its continuously growing concentration of start-ups. Central Square is your go-to for multicultural restaurants, and Inman Square is for shopping, cafes, and nightlife.
The city is encompassed by art everywhere you turn. You can’t walk but a few steps without an impressive mural or sculpture catching your eye. A series of art galleries dot the city streets, and feature works of art and collections by local designers. Those seeking live performances and musical acts should seek out the American Repertory Theatre.
Top-ranking schools also live in Cambridge. Students attending Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Lesley University enjoy close proximity to the jogging trails by the Charles River from their student apartments.
As of October 2018, the average apartment rent in Cambridge, MA is $2,412 for a studio, $2,706 for one bedroom, $3,262 for two bedrooms, and $4,061 for three bedrooms. Apartment rent in Cambridge has increased by 3.2% in the past year.

Living in Cambridge
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.
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.
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.
