Cambridge, Massachusetts prides itself on being home to two of the most prestigious universities in the United States. Both Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology make their homes within the city limits of Cambridge. Harvard University is noted for being the oldest University in all of America.

Some people call Cambridge “The City of Squares” because it has at least six individual squares within it. The most well-known would have to be Harvard Square. The bulk of Harvard University sits in Harvard Square, and it is a popular shopping area as well as an educational hub.

Over the years, Central Square has been rising in popularity for many of the same things. Central Square is well known for its restaurants, especially ethnic cuisine. Kendall Square houses the eastern portion of the MIT campus and tends to be a more business-oriented square, being made up of mostly highrise buildings and offices.
