About Central Square

Central Square is the life of Cambridge's party. Central offers a relief from the booming biotech companies and academic juggernauts that dominate much of the Cambridge landscape.

Want to see what it's like on the ground? Take a Google Maps "street view" stroll through Central Square!

There's cultural diversity. There are fun bars and funky shops. There's an annual dance party that shuts down the main street (Massachusetts Avenue) for a night! If you're looking for a "real neighborhood" in Cambridge, Central Square is the place to be.
