Want to hear a secret? You can find a truly memorable meeting experience in Cambridge—just a stone’s throw away from Boston, right across the Charles River—without giving up the convenient location.
Cambridge is Boston’s brainy and hip younger cousin, a city where new ideas find their ground and take off. Anchored by Harvard University and M.I.T., this world-class college town is packed with legendary cultural institutions, historic venues and innovative cuisine.
But here’s something you may not know about Cambridge—it’s exceptionally easy to get to. Located just five miles from Logan International Airport, upon arrival your attendees can take a taxi or hop on the subway’s Red Line and land quickly in your Cambridge hotel or meeting venue. And staying in Cambridge doesn’t mean sacrificing access to Boston—thanks to the newly renovated Longfellow Bridge, visitors have a direct line (either by car, bike or foot) from Kendall Square into Boston’s West End.
Cambridge itself (with fantastic walkability, public transportation system and abundant bike lanes) is best explored sans car, a perk for out-of-town visitors. Arrange for a group bicycle tour of Harvard Square for some Ivy League inspiration, then enjoy a post-meeting meal at ArtScience Culture Lab & Café in Kendall Square to try some unique science-themed cuisine (think cocktail ingredients transformed into breathable vapors) and stimulate conversations about experimentation and thinking outside the box. Surrounded by so much innovation, your attendees will leave Cambridge with a fresh perspective and eyes firmly on the future.
