I recently enjoyed a movie here, but I also found that many of the stores close up early (for me, before 11 pm), which friends and I might have enjoyed tea or coffee. I have visited MIT, shopped, dined, visited the US Post Office, or...More

Quiet at night and there are few restaurants that cater to travelers here as it's primarily a business spot. You'll likely not hang out here in the evening.

Went to legals in Kendall Square for a girls night out because it's a local spot that my family goes to for graduations and date nights. We have been going to Legal since it opened on Park Square. However this night was very disappointing. It...More

Visitng this area after a hiatus of 50 plus years. I found this area to be amaizing. It is a great area to walk, admiring the new buildings of all descriptions inclusing, offices, hotels, and apartments. Walk two blocks to the river

This is more of an area verses a square. It is situated on the edge of MIT and is home to a very cool fountain plus shops and restaurants. Not much else to mention.

Not much to say since we pretty just walked by or through it about 4 times while getting to and from our hotel.

There are some nice restaurants (if you like pretentious, soulless, food) but in general anything farther away from the T than a couple of blocks is sterile. Too bad, as MIT has some great architecture and hidden gems, but it was all played out by...More

Very beautiful in the evening. Great place for pictures and a casual stroll. Close to the mall and hotels, it is easy to get to and I definitely recommend it if you want a pretty, not terribly loud get away.

We went to Kendall Square after touring MIT. We walked around a bit and eventually stopped for lunch. It is a nice area with a few eating options. There are many big companies with East Coast headquarters here (right outside MIT).
