After finishing up a work conference in Boston, I decided to schedule a couple of vacation days. On one day, I took the “T” (subway) over to Cambridge and strolled around the campuses of Harvard University and MIT. Lots of great architecture: classic old buildings, plus new ones like Frank Gehry’s Stata Center at MIT.
To tour MIT, take the “T” Red Line to the Kendall/MIT stop. I wound my way through campus, down Vassar Street, to Massachusetts Avenue, and then along the Charles River.
To tour Harvard, you can take the “T” Red Line to the Harvard Square stop. You’ll be right across the street from the historic Harvard Yard. While at Harvard, I used my Boston CityPASS to visit the Harvard Museum of Natural History.
