Neighborhood overview

Located right across from Fresh pond reservoir with a dog park and 3 mile track to run around and a 9 hole public golf course. Local Information - - there are a couple of Grocery stores within 6- 10 min walking distance ( Whole foods and Star Market). HI- Rise Bakery is highly recommended and a 10 Min walk on Concord Ave, Formaggio's Kitchen is a great place to get speciality foods, Cheese etc.. There quite a few stores, and restaurants near Whole foods - Genki Ya (Sushi), Panera Bread including CVS address CVS Pharmacy - Photo 215 Alewife Brook Pkwy Cambridge, MA 02138 Open 24 hours - I would also recommend Hi-rise Bakery at the corner of Huron and Concord Ave ( 15 mins walk), for one of kind Sandwiches salads etc.. - Formaggios Speciality grocery store 7 min walk on Huron Ave. ( as you come out of the house to the main rd - take a left and walk up to the Red Light - Huron Ave and turn Left. The store is on your right, with a bunch of other interesting store and Boutiques). - Summer Shack by Jasper White ( seafood restaurant - Picnic tables set up inside ) is a 15 min walk - towards Alewife Station and past whole foods ( on the right) and - Helmund - Afghani restaurant - Sofra Bakery ( next to Star Market ) must try!!! - Genki Ya ( first rotary towards Concord St/Alewife station) - Porter Square has Japanese and Korean Fast food market - Blue Fin Japanese restaurant - Elephant Walk - Best French Cambodian food around As mentioned in the listing as well there is track - 2 miles, around Freshpond reservoir across the street, with a 9 hole public Golf Course - Charles River separating Boston and Cambridge is a 12 min walk and you can see Teams practicing for the Head of the Charles ( rowing ) race. - Dunkin Donuts is 7 min walk One word - Cambridge. you are walking distance to Harvard Square and many local Cambridge restaurants, shops, museums. Running track around the Fresh pond opposite the house, walking distance to public golf course. Home to two of America's most prestigious universities, Cambridge exudes a certain intellectual quirkiness. A mix of historical haunts, student hang-outs, alternative art and culture venues, vintage clothing shops, bookstores and ethnic restaurants, the city is, well, really cool. Although it is located just across the Charles River from Boston, Cambridge has a distinct vibe that is noticeable immediately. Start at Harvard Square, a hub of activity and mishmash of trendy stores, outdoor cafes and colorful local characters. Pick up a walking tour map at the visitors information booth in the center of the Square. The route will take you past many important landmarks including the Mount Auburn Cemetery, Tory Row and the Longfellow National Historic Site. Harvard University offers student-led tours through the illustrious buildings and monuments of its sprawling campus. Art and architecture buffs should meander around the M.I.T campus, which includes outdoor sculptures by masters such as Picasso and 20th-century buildings designed by modern greats like Eero Saarinen and I. M. Pei. Along the way, browse through bookstores, stop to watch street performers and grab a coffee at an outdoor café to take in all this captivating city has to offer. Copy and paste the below url for Cambridge Travel Guide. Boston Walk the Freedom Trail the first time you visit Boston, and you'll quickly get a sense of this coastal city's revolutionary spirit and history. But make sure you also explore some of Boston's fine museums (try the Gardner, featuring art masterpieces displayed in their collector's mansion) and old neighborhoods (like the North End, Boston's Little Italy). You can't claim to have experienced real Boston culture, though, unless you've watched a Red Sox baseball game from the bleachers, Celtics Basketball game and Bruins Hockey game at TD Garden. Looking for day trip ideas - here's one spend an entire day at a pristine Singing Beach and exclusive city of Manchester by Sea, accesible in an hr from Cambridge by Car, preferably Commuter train from North Station, take the T from Alewife station ( walking distance away) to North Station. From North station transfer to Commuter station and take the train with Family to Manchester by the sea. Trust me totally worth it. Boston University, Tufts University, North East University, Lesley College etc.. are all very easily accessible by Pubic transportation and or by car/Taxi or Uber. You can get around anywhere in and around Boston - including to neighboring towns with Somerville, Arlington, Belmont, Watertown, etc..

Getting around

Local Public Transportation - We have excellent local transportation options - Red Line T stops 1) Harvard Sq ( Bus stop for 72 /75 ) 2 min walk from home to Harvard sq directly) 2) Alewife ( 18 min walk) 3) Porter Sq 18 Min walk. Red line takes you into Boston and you can change trains at stations where there are other lines intersecting...Notables are MIT/ Central sq, Charles - Mass General Hospital, Park Station, South Station ( commuter rail station), Broadway etc...
