Perhaps one of the most beautiful campuses on the east coast is Harvard University. The campus is so rich in history that its central location has been named, "Harvard Yard," and it's considered a must-see for tourists and new students alike. One of the most iconic sculptures in Harvard Yard and in Cambridge itself is the John Harvard Statue. Schedule a tour so that you can learn all about the history of John Harvard and how this gorgeous statue came to be.
Another beautiful destination in Cambridge is Mount Auburn Cemetery. Graveyards are actually beautiful records of the past, and this one is actually a national historic landmark. The cemetery welcomes more than 200,000 visitors each year to not only visit the graves of those buried there but also to explore the many attractions it has to offer. From the history to the statues and its people, to the plants, wildlife, and art, there is a lot that makes this place so special.
If you don't mind traveling just under 15 minutes, you'll find yourself in Boston, which is well-known for its history. The Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge is not only breathtaking at night, but it's also one of the widest cable-stayed bridges in the world. The bridge is named after civil rights activist, Lenny Zakim, and the American colonists who fought the British in the Battle of Bunker Hill. While you're there, visit the Bunker Hill Monument, Dorchester Heights, and Charleston Navy Yard.
