A must see during our Boston trip. Such a beautiful campus and the surrounding area in Cambridge is stunning in the fall.

You can walk into Harvard Yard from the hustle and bustle of Harvard Square and immediately transport yourself to the academic environment. The University uses a house system and each one is unique. The library is impressive both outside and inside. Tourists often like to take pictures of the John Harvard statue just inside the Yard.

I absolutely loved walking around Harvard. It is such a gorgeous campus, between the historic buildings, green yards, and the views of the Charles River. Perhaps I just got lucky with the timing, but the parts of the campus that I walked around were not very crowded and were quiet (with the exception of Harvard Square). Even if you are not a student, I highly recommend taking a day to visit the campus and seeing everything that Harvard has to offer. And if you’re looking for a good spot for a picture, take a stop by the Johnston Gate.

Walk through Harvard Yard and touch John Harvard’s shoe for good luck. It is a stroll through history and then check out some of the Harvard Museums.
