4 Must-Visit Outdoor Attractions around Cambridge

When you want to explore the city, check out some of the unique and must-visit attractions near our Cambridge apartments. They offer entertainment and safe options for social distancing. Our favorite outdoor attractions in Cambridge include:

Cosmic Moose and Grizzly Bear's Ville

This house and its unusual fence are the work of Peter Valentine, a man who has turned something typical into something amazing. He painted his fence purple and took it from there, letting his mind loose. The fence is now covered, partially with images but mostly with Valentine's thoughts. Because he's still adding to it, this masterpiece is ever-changing, making it a fantastic place to come back to every now and again. If you prefer to check it out virtually, check it out online.

Modica Way

Modica Way, or Graffiti Alley, is exactly what its nickname suggests, an open-air art gallery. The alleyway features a city-installed photo collage and is otherwise filled with pieces from local street artists. It's also partially covered by a stained glass-style canopy to fill the area with colorful light. You can also take in its beauty online.

O'Reilly Spite House

If you've never heard of a spite house, you need to check out this destination. Unsurprisingly, it's a house built out of spite. The O'Reilly Spite House stands at a whopping eight feet wide, the result of a man's anger after his neighbor refused to buy a small strip of land from him. You can see the house, now occupied by an interior decorating firm, online.

Harvard Bridge

At first glance, the Harvard Bridge is just your average bridge, but it holds a small piece of MIT history. Years ago, an MIT fraternity laid a pledge, named Oliver Smoot, on the bridge and measured his length, which became an informally recognized unit of measurement known as a "smoot." The bridge was marked by the fraternity brothers every 10 smoots. Read more about the bridge straight from MIT.
