Harvard Square is a large triangular area in the center of Cambridge, MA, at the intersection of Massachusetts Ave, Brattle St., and John F. Kennedy St.. It is the historic center of Cambridge. Adjacent to Harvard Yard, the historic heart of Harvard University.
"During my college years, I used to busk in The Square - you'd be surprised how much money people will pay you to stop singing songs from the Andrew Lloyd Weber musical "Cats."" - Conan O'Brien
Beware the bicyclists who will run you over rather than jeopardize their win in the imaginary Tour de Force going on in their heads.
Great in the summer and fall.Grab a latte at ABP and just watch people from all over the world pass by.Great restaurants Border cafe, Tavern, Grafton street pub, Charlies kitchen just too many to list
Aside from having world-class education, Harvard is also situated in an amazing environment. Take a tour of the school and don’t miss the Yard where you’ll see the Memorial Church and Peabody Museum.
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!
Watch out for drifters.
Avoid the crazies!
There are 3 great burrito joints here: Anna's near Brattle Square, Felipe's on Mt Auburn St near JFK St, and Boloco on Mt Auburn St by Holyoke St
Walk quickly and don't stop in the middle of the sidewalk for a picture. Visit The Tannery, grab a coffee and grab food over at veggie planet! So good!
Parking is horrible. Use public transportation or walk if possible.
Car Talk fans: Look for the Dewey, Cheatem & Howe sign. Third floor window.

Now that you're here why not pay a visit to Haunted Starbucks?
Head to Zinneken's for Belgian waffles !

Great people watching here. And great buskers, too!
This is a terrific spot to start an architectural tour. Within an easy circumference of this intellectual center, you can find three centuries of Cambridge architecture.
PIT RAT FOR LIFE!!! YO!
Yummy authentic Belgian waffles at Zinneken's
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.
The Hahvahd Tour is great. The guides are very informative and it costs as much as you want to tip.
Not really Harvard. More like a Harvard themed shopping mall.
Kind of sketchy! Uh huh.
bentley shuttle from here = CLUTCH!
Loved the tour run by the Harvard students; suggested donation is $10 per adult & $20 per family. The tour ends near a student run shop where 10% of purchases is put towards assisting students.
Tons of shops and restaurants in the area to fully plan your day!
Had a lovely time last week for the Hasty Pudding Festivities. Must say the Crimson do know how to throw a party! Thanks for the hospitality!
Check out the thrifting.
Seeking parking? Go down to the Pilgrim lot in central square (mass ave and garden st)
square circle square!
Great funky little neighborhood -- interesting spot to people watch & meet folks on the street
Avoid the heavy foot traffic by walking on side streets.
The Harvard on rye with the chipotle mayo is key
It's all about the chess.
Heading to zinneken's for some authentic belgian waffles. A must-try ! ()
JP lLicks for ice cream no matter how cold
Heading to Zinneken's for a Belgian waffle !
Along with Newbury Street, Harvard Square is a great place for people watching and style inspiration.

The arts quad in Ithaca is better!
Great area to explore tons of shops and good places to eat and drink.
insanely crowded on weekends…so if you're just passing through…beware
Tour de FRANCE, Bob D. France. A "Tour de force" is not a bike race. Vocabulary!!!
