Cambridge (and around Boston)

I’ve been living in the Cambridge area since summer 2015. Out of convenience, I often say that I live in Boston, although I joke that I only actually go to Boston when visitors come and want to do the Freedom Trail. The reality is that Cambridge is a city unto itself, with great restaurants, outdoor spaces, coffee shops galore, and the famous November Project. What else could you really need?! The list below represents a (partial) summary of the places/experiences that I’ve adventured in the area. Enjoy!
