Cambridge, Massachusetts, was named after the University of Cambridge, UK, and fittingly, houses two of the world’s most prestigious educational institutions – Harvard and MIT - making it a sanctuary for college students and recent graduates. The city draws an ethnically diverse population, as well as the academically oriented, given its penchant for education. Aside from its universities, the city also has branches of major corporations such as Google, Microsoft and Novartis, which provides ample employment opportunities for college students and recent graduates. Its residents (called Cantabrigians) are considered among the most accepting and tolerant in the country – Cambridge is a haven for both LGBT persons as well as hipsters. While it has progressed through the years to become a beacon for innovation, Cambridge has also retained its old world charm, having a great number of historical sites dating back to the 17th century. Whether you’re listening to jazz and indie rock at Inman Square and the Middle East Restaurant & Nightclub, cruising around on your bike, or basking in the remnant glory of days gone by, Cambridge will make you feel right at home.
