Similar to its across-the-river counterpart, Harvard Square celebrates independence. Locally owned bookstores, theatres, and music venues invigorate the square’s vibrant atmosphere. This neighborhood’s inexhaustible energy is due in part to a steady stream of university students from nearby campuses, as well as to its central location and convenient public transportation options. Hang out until the bars close inside Harvard Square’s bustling core, or enjoy the neighborhood’s tranquil scenery along its dignified side streets.See 52 places to stay Save this neighborhood
