Local Reviews

Every day we would walk in the park near where we lived and breathe the fresh air on the green and cobblestone paths

There are a lot of bars and restaurants close by. We also have a subway station close by. There are many little parks and playgrounds.

I like walking along the Charles. Harvard Square is close by with many restaurants and coffee shops.
