Harvard University and Harvard Square
DISTANCE FROM HOTEL: 1.1 MILES
Established in 1636, Ivy-League, privately owned Harvard is the oldest institution of higher learning in the U.S. Some would argue it’s the most well-known; some would argue it’s the most prestigious. Regardless, it’s a name everyone recognizes, and it’s a historic spot to visit. The adjoining Harvard Square is the commercial hub of Cambridge. It’s also an iconic symbol of the city; musicians play on the street, shops vie for your patronage and the permanent chess tables at the outdoor café are always crowded.
