Boston - Cambridge & East Anglia (PDF Chapter)
Here, we count Cambridge as one among many ‘neighborhoods’ in Boston. But truth be told, this independent town has the historical and cultural offerings to rival many major cities. Certainly, it matches Boston for quality (if not quantity) and diversity of drinking, dining and entertainment options. Exploring museums, historic sites and university landmarks, you could just as easily spend a day as spend a year.
