Harvard Square Tours

19 Reviews
This popular square is a thriving hub for street musicians and performers thanks to pedestrian-friendly streets and a deep-rooted history in the American literary scene (colonial Poet Anne Bradstreet once lived here). Travelers will find plenty of local life, as well as restaurants, shopping, an old-school newsstand and some public art installations, which make it easy to spend an afternoon here experiencing local life.

Skateboarders and punk-inspired high school kids can be found hanging out near a sunken area of Harvard Square known as “the pit”, while a lively outdoor café hosts chess matches for willing passersby. A plethora of benches, sidewalks, terraces and cafes make it the perfect place to people watch in Cambridge.
