Awesome buffalo

Really great buffalo wings. This isn't a sophisticated environment. The outdoor seating and location are awesome. It is good for after work drinks with people that like beer. (Not... read more

Enjoyable area to walk in historic Cambridge. Eclectic choice of eateries and the Harvard campus only a few blocks away. Much of it is a bit pricey, but well worth it. You have to stand under the Washingon Oak!

locals eat here for lunch, students frequent in the evening. Great pizza and cool setting in the heart of Harvard Square. Inexpensive, good food.

Renovations are going on right now (summer of 2015) and they were needed. This famous old public park, where George Washington summoned the US Army for the first time under a tree that died in the early 1900s, had become quite outdated and outgrown. But given some attention from the city council this will be a gem right in the... More

Cambridge Common is a smallish park with soccer field and playground near Harvard Square / the Sheraton Commander. It is currently under construction and a good portion of the surrounding walkway is roped off. Not attractive. People tend to picnic here in the summer and there are a few benches along a paved path thru the park, but given its... More

If you like a construction site with bulldozers running and earth movers this is the place to see. Hobos hate and you may too. The only thing which operates is a playground which is fenced of.. Will be like that for another year or two..

I have been going to CC for a few years now. It has been a great go to place to meet up with friends after work or for a casual night with out of town guests. Love this place!

This common has an amazing playground! There are standard features such as swings and slides, but there are also wooden structures for imaginative play, a box sledding hill, a conveyor belt and buckets for the sand area, and a rope climbing area. Though part of the park area is closed off for reconstruction of the soccer fields, there is still... More

I would love to have been able to visit many stores here but the parking garage clearance was 6.5 feet. If you are in an SUV (especially a 4 wheel drive) it's just too low to access safely.

Pretty land and location, but what to do varies depending upon the season and if anything is scheduled to occur on the day that you are there. Mostly it is a pretty area to walk in with a very nice playground at one end.
