One of my dreams is to visit all 50 states of the U.S. I think this would be an amazing adventure! Each state is unique, as if you’re visiting a new country when you enter a new state. You can go to Colorado and see the beautiful Rocky Mountains, head up to New York to experience the hustle and bustle of Wall Street, and then head down to Austin to taste some delicious tacos.

So far, I ‘ve visited 20 out of 50 states, which seems like a pretty good start. I often spend time researching the different states that I have yet to experience, searching for the coolest attractions in each one. I’ve recently turned my attention to the East Coast. I started looking at things to do in Boston. As I read more and more about Boston, Massachusetts has grown on me, so I’ve expanded my search to other cities in the state. Cambridge has really grabbed my attention.

Cambridge is located directly north of Boston. It is home to both Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It was named after the renowned school in England, the University of Cambridge. It has the fifth-largest population in Massachusetts, with about 105,000 residents. Cambridge has some unique attractions that have caught my eye. Here are seven attractions that I’ll be visiting when I make my way to Cambridge.

  1. Fogg Art Museum

The oldest museum in Cambridge, the Fogg Museum is home to one of America’s most impressive collections of artwork, including a brilliant collection by Picasso. The Fogg also has some amazing prints, drawings, and photographs.

  1. Longfellow House – Washington’s Headquarters National Historic Site

As the former home of the talented 19th-century poet Henry W. Longfellow, this building is now a preserved historic site. General George Washington used the Longfellow House as a headquarters during the Siege of Boston from 1775 to 1776. It’s a great stop for history buffs and anyone who likes to explore arts and literature.
