About Cambridge

Cambridge is actually a city of its own and not a neighborhood of Boston, just like Somerville.

If you're looking to work in biotech or life sciences, Kendall Square in Cambridge is where you want to be. If you're looking for a more social and ethnically diverse scene, hop on the Red Line and get off at Central Square. Need to "escape" urban environs? The Fresh Pond area offers a chance to reconnect with nature.

All in all, Cambridge is incredibly walkable, has a great public transportation system woven into it and is just one of the coolest towns to be in.

Start your exploration of Cambridge by finding out more about its wonderful neighborhoods:

Cambridgeport — a quiet, quaint and coveted neighborhood in the south of Cambridge.

Central Square — a residential haven between academic and commercial giants.

East Cambridge — Kendall Square's rapidly gentrifying northern neighbor.

Fresh Pond — peace and quiet come naturally to to Fresh Pond.

Inman Square (shared with Somerville) — an inspired residential intersection between Union Square and Central Square.

Kendall Square — the global hub for biotech/life sciences research and innovation.

Porter Square (shared with Somerville) — just 20 minutes from the bustle of Boston, but feels 20 miles away.
