    Weeks Bridge

    Favorite thing: Get out along the Charles River. The Charles divides Cambridge and Boston and is lined for its entire length with scenic parkland offering a view of the Cambridge and Boston skylines. Crew practice is often held along the river, and there are some very majestic boathouses gracing its shores. Even the bridges along the Charles are scenic- here we see the Weeks Bridge with the Harvard Tower in the background.

    One of the glorious River Houses

    Favorite thing: See Havard University, the nation's first institution of higher learning, which is probably the number one attraction in Cambridge. Tour the redbrick buildings and luscious commons of the campus. Most of the tourists go first to Harvard Yard, the historic centre of the university, where there are several 18th century buildings and a statue to John Harvard, the founder. For a more serene and genuine, but no less architecturally interesting Harvard experience, head across the river to the Business School, where quiet courtyards and arched gates greet you at every turn of the path.

    Looking towards Cambridge

    Favorite thing: Cambridge is immediately north of Boston, just a hop away from Back Bay via Harvard Bridge. The other main bridges are Longfellow Bridge and "B.U." Bridge located to both sides of Harvard Bridge.

    Fondest memory: I entered the main building and spent some time walking around inside, peeking at the classrooms and laboratories I always dreamed about.
