Two days in Cambridge are enough time to browse the city’s extensive collection of historic sites and educational institutions at a leisurely, thoughtful pace. Depending on the time of year, you might also hang out in a park or two—or cross the Charles River and check out Boston. Here are some ideas.

Day 1: Morning

Start your day at Harvard on one of the prestigious university’s cheeky tours, which are led by current students who provide insight into Cambridge life with a theatrical flair. Afterward, grab a coffee and bite to eat at one of Harvard Square’s many cafés and restaurants.

Day 1: Afternoon

After lunch, head to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to wander around the campus and marvel at the school’s interesting architecture, including the Frank Gehry–designed Stata Center and the avant-garde Simmons Hall. While you’re there, keep your eyes peeled for “hacks,” creative student pranks that pop up around campus. Guided tours combining both Harvard and MIT are an option.

Day 1: Night

Embark on a sunset sightseeing cruise along the Charles River, taking in views of Boston and Cambridge from the water. You’ll see attractions such as Beacon Hill, Esplanade Park, and the Museum of Science, to name just a few. Alternatively, return to Harvard Square for dinner.

Day 2: Morning and afternoon

Thanks to Cambridge’s convenient location, it’s easy to visit nearby historic cities on a guided day trip. See the Lexington Battle Green, where the opening shots of the Revolutionary War were fired, and Concord’s Battle Road Trail, which was part of Paul Revere’s famous ride. If you prefer to stay closer to Cambridge, head outside on a biking tour of the area, or go for a run (or walk) along the Charles River Esplanade. Foodies might want to explore the Kendall Square neighborhood, trying out innovative eateries on a culinary-themed tour.

Day 2: Night

Join a pub crawl and discover some of Boston’s many craft breweries, as well as taverns that have been serving beer since the 1800s. Some tours even offer a “dry run” option for those who are interested in the history but not the brews.
