  • King Street Shopping

    Whenever I go to a new town I love to explore their main street. To me this sort of tells me the vibe of the town or city I am in. Generally I look for the same things; cute stores, cafes, and funky restaurants. Our main street is no different then most I suppose, but it is worth a look. It runs the gamut of a variety of shops with no particular...

    The linear trail is a great little gem tucked away that you would never find unless you live in Preston. Directions below. The trail itself twists and turns to follow the Speed River so it is actually about an hour and a half walk and you can also kayak along the river. This trail is a great way to escape the idea that you are in a small city. it...

    When I first moved to Cambridge I admit it took me years to venture into this spot. It wasn't until an out of town friend of mine went there for lunch that I was brave enough to go in on my own. Every town needs it's local greasy spoon and the Cambridge Restaurant is ours. It is mostly popular for it's breakfasts which it does awesomely. On Sundays...

  • Awesome Bagels & More

    This place is a local gem. People rave about the bagels of certain cities: Montreal, New York etc. The City Cafe and Bakery is up there in my opinion of amazing bagels. All the bread is made in a wood fire stove that sits in the middle of the open spaced kitchen and the cafe itself is inside a former gas station complete with the garage door that...

Cambridge Nightlife

  • Clubbing

    Cambridge doesn't have much of a night life. Our night life generally consists of pubs and seedy bars. There are no real "clubs" in this area other then the Grasshopper. This used to be a very low end bar called 69 Pick-ups but a new owner took over and sunk some money into it to transform it into a hip hop dance bar. The only thing being that you...

  • Scottish Pub

    The Argyle Arms is a local Scottish pub. It has a great outdoor patio, and the inside is very cozy. The food is somewhat upper class as opposed to general bar food, so their menu is on the smaller side but it is very tasty. The offer live music as seems to be a big trend in this area since there really are no nightclubs or real bars. Instead they...

  • Groovy Grub

    This local little bar is a treasure among so many franchises. It is individually owned and operated by a musician who promotes building the local music scene, supporting budding artists by having art shows on rotation on his wall space, and creating a menu that strives for gourmet non-proceesed food. The Groove Ktichen is small and cozy- it only...

    This shop sits in a plaza that is dead. it is situated next to a laundry mat and a computer repair shop. In truth to drive by you would never think to even look into the plaza other then to think it was dumpy looking. But this salon I have been going to for years and they are top notch in quality and pricing. They feature 4 large top of the line...

Cambridge What to Pack

  • Photo equipment

    I had a great day with lots of light in the conservatory because of the sunshine outside. But even in these conditions it was great to have a high speed film. So I would suggest using a 800 iso film when you want to take photos here. When you don't use a strong zoom like I did a 400 iso film would be sufficient.I know not all of you have this,...

  • Don't dress too warm!

    Be aware that it is very warm in the greenhouse. The Conservatory will range in temperature from 24°C(75°F) to 28°C(82°F) year round with a high humidity. So it's best to wear some light clothes when going to the butterfly conservatory. Hahaha, I tried to adjust to these summer like temperatures, but I still was dressed too warm. It was...
