Cambridge and Harvard Tour
Boston as a region may be known as a world center for learning, but Cambridge is where it’s at: boasting two of the world’s leading universities and a diverse population with an edgy, progressive political mindset. Cambridge also has it’s share of U.S. history; it’s where George Washington took command of the newly formed U.S. Army during the Siege of Boston. It’s also home to countless museums, bookstores, boutiques and cafes.
