Harvard Square

There’s more to Harvard Square than one of the world’s most famous universities. Home to a huge variety of shops, from indie record stores to high-end boutiques to large chains—not to mention world-famous restaurants and cafes—the square is always bustling. Catch a show at the American Repertory Theater (or its louder sibling, Club Oberon), enjoy an espresso at Cafe Algiers, feast at world-famous Mr. Bartley’s Gourmet Burgers, or relax in one of the many green spaces in between, like Cambridge Common or Harvard Yard. Though one of Cambridge’s busiest destinations, streets just a few blocks out that have a quiet neighborhood feel. HARVARDSQUARE.COM
