Cambridge

Trip Planner USA  /  Massachusetts  /  Cambridge

Distinguished for Classical Learning and New Institutions

Best known as the location of two internationally renowned universities, Cambridge sits just across the Charles River from Boston. This busy urban center is home to a diverse, young, international crowd, drawn by the city's distinguished universities and its prosperous high-tech companies. A progressive and tolerant city, Cambridge is also a growing favorite with foreign travelers, arriving in throngs to find out if this town really is "Boston's Left Bank." You can follow the crowds to the universities, but be sure to leave plenty of time in your itinerary for Cambridge's many renowned museums, including one housing the world's most comprehensive record of the Western Hemisphere's cultural history. Cambridge is in Massachusetts (MA). Take a peek at our online itinerary creator: Cambridge and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.

Where to stay in Cambridge

As the home of two renowned universities, Cambridge caters mainly to the families of current or prospective students. You can stay near the university campuses by booking your room at a student-oriented bed and breakfast or guesthouse, which offer simple, comfortable lodging for a fraction of the price charged by the big chains. If you don't mind paying more and wish to stay near the city's major cultural attractions, consider a hotel just across the Charles River from downtown Boston.
