Picturesque architecture and stunning state of the buildings combine with eclectic culture to make Cambridge a fantastic place to live.  The energy and optimism that Cambridge throws off can be contagious as you stop by a coffee shop and overhear people discussing the next great internet startup. Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology provide an intellectual accent, while proximity to Boston proper allows residents to enjoy a world-class art, culture, and culinary scene.
