Vibrant area just off Harvard campus with quirky shops, great restaurants and cool street performers. Everything you need in one place!

More like a trapezoid these days, but the centre of Harvard University on the Cambridge side. Lots of great shops and side streets to explore. Should be something for everyone.

Harvard Square is area near Harvard University. Their is lots of restaurants and shopping in this area. Their is night life and event happening all times of the year. Disability access and disability parking very limited.

Coming out of the Harvard Square T station, you will most likely be hit with the sound of either a young student playing on his/her guitar, or a group of protestors....protesting something. Harvard Square is certainly full of the artsy and creative types, in stark contrast to some of the more upscale restaurants and stores in this area. The Harvard University community can be felt strongly here, and it's worth a trip just to check out their beautiful campus. But it is also a classic New England town, full of brownstone apartments and cobblestone streets that are nice just to walk along and take in the eclectic crowd.Recommended for:Local Culture

While you very well may encounter a good number of overprivileged yuppies and self-important professor types wandering around the square, you shouldn't let this stop you from paying the place a visit. The international community here is astounding, which makes for a uniquely diverse neighborhood with tons of different shops and eateries catering to both the stingiest and most indulgent of budgets. And as any visitor must admit, Harvard is beautiful, and you'd be surprised how open much of the campus is open to visitors. You could spend hours passing through the school's historic courtyards and quiet side streets. It is a quintessential piece of Boston that should not be missed.

Harvard square is always happening. The local shops around the square are a treat, they are really one of the kind shops that cannot be found elsewhere (Black Ink, Julep, Cardullo's, Zinnia), there is something for everyone to see and love. There are plenty of famous eateries around the square as well, they can be identified with long lines extending to the outside. Great spot on a day just for exploring.

For many people Harvard Square is synonymous with Boston, and for good reason. With the hustle and bustle of students, tourists and locals, Cambridge is as much of a city as Boston itself. Just a few stops down on the red line T, this famous square is definitely worth checking out. Stroll through the Harvard campus through the oaks and ivy and see where many past and future leaders of our country called home for 4 or more years.

It's really neat college area and I love it there. We walked around the campus with my dad to reminisce that he actually received scholarship from this school but he did not take it since he was focused more on his work and his position.

One can imagine the conversations going on here. This is directly accessible from the T and there are plenty of shops filled with Boston and Harvard fan gear. My favorite place? Grendel's Den!
