The city was named in honor of the University of Cambridge in England, a nexus of the Puritan theology embraced by the town’s founders. Notably, Cambridge is home to two internationally prominent universities, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University. “No matter which neighborhood you find yourself in, Cambridge’s scene teems with eclectic energy. When you have nearly four centuries’ worth of compounded history and the gorgeous Charles River to wake up to, everyday, each moment in the city is worthy of joy—curious, infectious, slightly mischievous joy”.
