Tips from locals
Harvard Square and surrounds is beautiful. It is a short walk to the Charles River. Grab a sandwich and have a picnic by the river.
Take the Red Line to Harvard Square. Visit Harvard University and the vibrant community surrounding it. Walk along the river, stop in at one of the diverse restaurants or coffee shops that abound, and just people watch!
