Across from the Charles River, nestled west of Boston is the charming city of Cambridge, Massachusetts. While thoughts of Ivy League prestige come to mind, Cambridge is also home to a thriving dining scene, quaint shops, and rich history. If you’re looking to settle in the historic hamlet, perhaps in our fabulous Cambridge community, The Wyeth, here are a few destinations to add to your weekend plans.

EAT: Nothing beats the winter chill like a steaming bowl of ramen. Located just a mile away is an iconic destination for rich broth, thick udon noodles, and eccentric toppings. Yume Wo Katare opened in Porter Square in 2012 and has recently expanded to 1815 Massachusetts Ave. As a staple for comfort soups and Asian delicacies, the owner also invites guests to voice their aspirations via a written note to be framed on its walls or out loud after triumphantly conquering an entire bowl of soup.

SEE: The Head of the Charles Regatta takes place every year in the second to last week of October. Visitors travel far and wide to witness this famed rowing competition that features over 11,000 athletes in the largest 2-day regatta in the world. When not taking in the competition, attendees can stroll through a transformed Harvard Square adorned with vendors, celebration, and local eats.
