    It is all about Harvard. You can find tons of cafes, restaurant and make a nice walk in campus. You can also take a walk near the Charles River.

    You would be making a mistake by not dining here: Border Cafe, Charlie's Kitchen, Mr. And Mrs. Bartley's Burgers to name a small few. Choose any street and find a great restaurant.

    Save yourself the hassle and expense of parking in the Square -- Go park at Alewife for $7 and ride the T if you plan on shopping and/or dining.

    Along with Newbury Street, Harvard Square is a great place for people watching and style inspiration.

  • Boston.com

    In 2008, the Globe reported that "across the generations Harvard Square remains the crossroads of funk and philosophy, of idealism and consumerism, of red brick and green politics." It's still true. Read more

    Not really Harvard. More like a Harvard themed shopping mall.

    A lot of people don't know this, but Harvard encourages unemployed people to audit its classes in order to improve their job prospects. Try it!

    Brett M. Rhyne · April 12, 2013
  • Jenny M.

    It's tough to name specifics here (lots to explore, and you should wander down main streets & side streets to get the vibe.) If I had to guide you, I'd say try Felipe's, L.A. Burdick, & Club Passim.

    Jenny Mackintosh · April 8, 2013
  • Brett M. R.

    Great people watching here. And great buskers, too!

    The 25th annual Harvard Sq. Holiday Crafts Fair features vendors from all over the world. Dubbed a "high energy alternative marketplace with a great soundtrack," and a "party where you can buy stuff!"
