Cambridge Common Tours

Cambridge Common is a popular destination for both locals and visitors looking to unwind in some of the city’s most scenic green space. Local recreational leagues gather in this decidedly historic spot for kickball, soccer and softball, while newly minted couples lay out quiet picnics and energetic kids throw Frisbees across grassy fields. 

In addition to whiling away an afternoon in the shade or sunshine, travelers can explore the place where George Washington gathered troops during the Revolutionary War and check out historic cannons and plaques that commemorate some of the revolution’s major events. A statue of Abraham Lincoln is located at the center of Cambridge Common and stands as an homage to the Civil War leader. Visitors will also find the Irish Famine memorial.
