CAMBRIDGE
Massachusetts, U.S.A.
CITY OF SQUARES AND SCHOOLS
Welcome to Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Cambridge is part of Middlesex County and the Boston metropolitan area, and is located directly north of the City of Boston across the Charles River. The city was named after the University of Cambridge in England, which was an important center of the Puritan faith embraced by the Cambridge's founders. The city is known for being home to two of the world's most renowned universities: Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Cambridge is home to around 107,300 people, making it the 5th most populous city in the State of Massachusetts. Known as the City of Squares, most of Cambridge's commercial districts are in fact major street intersections known as squares, which act as individual neighborhood centers. Kendall Square, also known as Technology Square, is home to most of the city's large office towers as well as a number of stores. The Central Square is known for its ethnic restaurants, while Harvard Square is the primary site of Harvard University area and comprises a major Cambridge shopping area. The Porter Square is home to the Lesley University Hall and Porter Campus, while Inman Square is the place to go for a diverse range of restaurants, bars, music venues and boutiques. Inman Square offers a funky street scene with Victorian streetlights and a brand new community park. Finally, the Lechmere Square sits at the junction of Cambridge and First streets, adjacent to the Galleria shopping mall. Cambridge doesn't have much public parkland, as the city mostly consists of densely built residential space. However, most universities have their own park space on campus, such as the Harvard Yard, Radcliffe Yard and MIT's Great Lawn. The famous Mount Auburn Cemetery provides an addition lush respite, and is known as the first garden cemetery and the oldest planned landscape in the country. The cemetery is a Cambridge landmark, and is the final resting place to a number of distinguished inhabitants. Also worth visiting is the esplanade along the Charles River, the historic Cambridge Common, the Alewife Brook Reservation and Fresh Pond.
