Cambridge is perhaps best known for its universities, but there’s more to appreciate. The universities bring in all sorts of people from all over the world, making Cambridge a hub of intellectualism, multiculturalism and diversity. With its by and large liberal demographic, residents jokingly refer to as “the People’s Republic of Cambridge.” Cyclists find Cambridge streets much more bike-friendly than the sometimes-harrowing streets of Boston. Though the buildings in the city have been largely urbanized throughout the 20th century, many historic and Victorian homes are preserved. Furthermore, a swath of innovative and artistic architecture had been introduced by the universities.
