Arguably the most famous square in all of greater Boston is Harvard Square, and its not even in Boston!  Obviously anchored by Harvard University, this neighborhood is a must visit on any trip to the area.  We are just a short walk, bike, or car ride from the thick of it all.  Once in the Square you will notice the vibrant streets have so much to offer.  Cafes, bookstores, shopping, and restaurants in every direction.  We recommend you take a stroll through Harvard Yard, the oldest part of the campus, and soak in the feel of the most famous school in the country.  Museums what you are looking for?  Don’t miss the Harvard Art Museums.  Looking for a different perspective, follow JFK St towards the Charles River and take in the campus from the bridge over the Charles River.  Depending on the season you will see rowers training up for the prestigious Head of the Charles Regatta.  And if you are looking for a meal there are so many options.  Our favorite is Alden Harlow.  Need suggestions, please just ask!
