Your expedition will take place in Cambridge, Massachusetts, an historic town that has been declared a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation. Cambridge, located across the Charles River from the City of Boston, is home to two world-famous universities—Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)—as well as numerous museums, historic sites, restaurants, theaters, and nightlife spots. While in Cambridge, you may want to take time to visit Harvard Square or take in a lecture, musical event, or street show.
Boston is considered by many to be the capital of New England. Some of its highlights include the Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile (4-kilometer) route that leads you to 16 historically significant sites, including the Old North Church. Exploring the North End of Boston is like visiting Italy: it's home to authentic trattorias, bakeries, and winding cobblestone streets. Boston also boasts major sports venues, top-notch theater and music, attractions such as Faneuil Hall and the outdoor Haymarket, and world-class art, science, and cultural museums.
