    Nice walk from Cambridge to Boston (or reverse) with nice views to the skyline and the Charles river. Good place for a run too.

    The best photo of Cambridge’s skyline can be taken from the Boston side of the MIT Bridge.

    Safest areas to take a break when you're on the bridge are by the lamp posts. Watch for passing runners, bikers, etc.

    Why is it called Harvard bridge when it's like a block away from MIT?

    It gets very windy on the bridge, a winter hat will make a huge difference when it's cold!

    If you see a biker riding on the sidewalk, kindly body check them into the Charles (or refer them to the clearly marked bike lane a few feet away)

    My favorite view in all of Boston. A walk along this bridge connecting Cambridge and Boston gives you a panoramic view worthy of a postcard. Love the view at night when everything is all lit up.

    If you are driving, be aware of bikers that may be on the road with you; this is a popular place for our two-wheeled friends.

    It's definitely the Mass Ave Bridge, whereas it's not near Harvard

    Stop and look around, particularly at night. You are in one of the most beautiful, picturesque spots in the entire city of Boston

    364.4 Smoots long, this bridge connects Cambridge and Boston is great for a jog or just to get a different view of the city. It was also once the site of some of Houdini’s famous escape tricks!

    The most breathtaking view, by far, of Boston's July 4th Fireworks Spectacular can be enjoyed mid-river on the Harvard Bridge sidewalk. Arrive around 6:30 for a "front-row" spot--it gets crowded fast! Read more
