Cambridge Tourism: Best of Cambridge
Home to two of America's most prestigious universities, Cambridge exudes a certain intellectual quirkiness. A mix of historical haunts, student hang-outs, alternative art and culture venues, vintage clothing shops, bookstores and ethnic restaurants, the city is, well, really cool. Although it is located just across the Charles River from Boston, Cambridge has a distinct vibe that is noticeable immediately. Start at Harvard Square, a hub of activity and mishmash of trendy stores, outdoor cafes and colorful local characters. Pick up a walking tour map at the visitors information booth in the centre of the Square. The route will take you past many important landmarks including the Mount Auburn Cemetery, Tory Row and the Longfellow National Historic Site. Harvard University offers student-led tours through the illustrious buildings and monuments of its sprawling campus. Art and architecture buffs should meander around the M.I.T campus, which includes outdoor sculptures by masters such as Picasso and 20th-century buildings designed by modern greats like Eero Saarinen and I. M. Pei. Along the way, browse through bookstores, stop to watch street performers and grab a coffee at an outdoor café to take in all this captivating city has to offer.

- ByEaterWhere to Eat Fried Clams in and Around BostonGreater Boston is awash with excellent locally caught seafood, but there are few gustatory pleasures that match the consumption of a fried Ipswich clam. The clam flats of the Great Marsh — which stretches from Cape Ann to southern New Hampshire and consists of 25,000 acres of barrier beaches, dunes, salt marshes, rivers, and other water bodies — produces arguably the best soft-shell clams (also known as “steamers” or “piss clams”) in the world. It’s not shocking, then, that Greater Boston — and especially its North Shore — is the dope spot for the fried version. Fair warning: A number of these restaurants and shacks are seasonal. Also, a pro tip: Though they’re a bit far flung to include in a map dedicated to Greater Boston, Brown’s Lobster Pound and Markey’s Lobster Pool — which occupy space on opposite sides of Rte. 286 in Seabrook, New Hampshire — are each worth a day trip. Without further ado, here are 17 essential spots for fried clams in and around Boston. https://boston.eater.com/maps/best-fried-clams-boston17 items
