4 Reasons People Love Living in Cambridge


Cambridge might be known for its idyllic autumn and Ivy League schools but the town is loved for so many more reasons

From its upscale reputation to its historical aspect to its world-class dining, here are just a few of the countless reasons people love living in Cambridge.

Upscale Restaurants 

Cambridge boasts both culture and diversity when it comes to its dining options. Located in Area 4 of the city, Bondir Cambridge is a personable, farm-house style dining experience. In addition to their mouthwatering, home-cooked-inspired food, Bondir’s top-notch customer service and friendly guests will make you feel right at home. The Hourly Oyster House is another well-loved restaurant that can be found in the heart of Harvard Square. Located only miles away from the ocean, this quality seafood restaurant does not disappoint.


Cambridge has a plethora of festivals year-round, ranging from a folk festival to a carnival festival to art festivals. Perhaps one of the most popular is the Cambridge Arts Rivers Festival, which has been a staple of the town’s festivities for around 40 years. Located in the heart of the city in the Central Square Cultural District, this festival celebrates art, food, and diversity. The music performed here is a colorful display of genres—jazz, indie, folk, and rock. There is also poetry, theater, dance, as well as other immersive experiences celebrating the arts.


There are 16 parks spread throughout Cambridge, including the Alewife Brook Reservation. This state park consists of a massive 120 acres of wildlife and open space. It’s the perfect location for nature lovers to spend the day hiking, bird watching, or simply escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. In the summer months, you can even chase fireflies. Other notable open spaces include Charles River and Fresh Pond Reservation.

Active Nightlife 

It might be a historical city, but Cambridge is no stranger to modern entertainment. In addition to dive bars and comedy clubs, Cambridge is known as one of the best cities to enjoy live music. Residents and visitors alike love to frequent Toad, who describe themselves as a “neighborhood bar.” They feature live music seven days a week, particularly showcasing local artists.
