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. Use our United States online tour planner to plan your trip to Cambridge and other destinations in United States.
