Since moving to Boston, Matt and I have tried to explore as much of our new city as possible. We try to go somewhere new every couple of weeks! This past Saturday we spent the day in Cambridge. It was a great day full of a little work, a lot of walking, and some great food!
Matt is currently an actuary student, which means he has his college degree but doesn’t have his professional certifications yet. Our lives will be filled with a lot of studying in the next 5 years, but that’s okay because that means I can write while he studies! We went to Cambridge and got off at Harvard Square hoping to find coffee shop to work in for a couple of hours.
We ended up in a Starbucks right off of Harvard Square that has a Starbucks Reserve Bar. These are Starbuck’s high end coffee bars with some delicious offerings. Matt got a dark chocolate mocha, and I got the smoked butterscotch latte. They were both delicious (a little expensive) but it was cool to experience how they serve you and make the drinks. If you really like coffee and/or Starbucks, you should try one!
Once we were done exploring we decided to walk around Harvard’s campus. Matt made the comment that he would not like going to a school where random people were constantly on your campus, but we were 100% okay be tourists and taking lots of photos. It was a dreary day, but the trees and architecture were beautiful.
We continued to just randomly walk around, taking photos and talking! This is seriously one of my favorite things to do on a Saturday.
On our way back to Harvard Square, we came upon Boston Burger Company, which was on a couple of “must eat” lists that I’ve saved since moving here. We stopped for an early dinner, and it did not disappoint! I had “The Sophie” and Matt had the 420. Both were delicious, and we are adding this to our list of recommendations for visitors.
If you’re in Boston and have a free afternoon, I highly recommend spending it in Cambridge! It’s such a beautiful spot, and you are sure to find plenty to see and do. We are planning on going back very soon.
Have you been to Boston? What about Cambridge? Any recommendations?
