Very beautiful in the evening. Great place for pictures and a casual stroll. Close to the mall and hotels, it is easy to get to and I definitely recommend it if you want a pretty, not terribly loud get away.

We went to Kendall Square after touring MIT. We walked around a bit and eventually stopped for lunch. It is a nice area with a few eating options. There are many big companies with East Coast headquarters here (right outside MIT).

Probably should be renamed MIT Square (T stop). Not many shops but a lot of places to eat and drink and great access to MIT. Some of the best views of the Charles River!

The T-stops here, and within steps of this stop are a number of great restaurants from Legal Seafoods, to Clover Food Lab and Starbucks. Marriott Hotel is across the street, and the Hop on Hop Off Bus that gives tours of Boston also stops here.

Took a great trolley ride of Boston from Kendall square. Saw lots of great history !!! You could get off and on the trolley through out the tour.

Located in the heart of Cambridge there is lots to see and do at this location. Transit is easily accessible and can take you right to the center of Harvard. MIT is very close by as well.
