You simply cannot visit Boston without popping across the river to Cambridge.
It’s against the law.
Or should be.
Particularly on a sunny autumn day, light cascading through amber foliage, a cool breeze dancing with the fallen leaves, it’s the perfect opportunity to see Harvard in all its glory.
The campus is open to the public and you’re welcome to stroll around “the yard”.
We were there a little early, I can’t even imagine how spectacular it must look now with peak fall foliage in bloom!

Though of course, there’s more to Cambridge than just Harvard.
A maze of wide open streets, speckled with historic buildings, churches and homes.
My favourite of which being Longfellow House.
We grabbed a spot of lunch at Harvest, outside beside the fire.
This little ring is top of everyone’s Christmas list!
Though I must say the Citrine version is pretty special too.
We skipped pudding and made a beeline for a spot recommended by many on Instagram…
For a slice of chocolate pie and a tremendously naughty and very gooey pecan swirl.
Dripping in caramel!
Wired from the sugar we thought we’d sneak into MIT and catch a lecture.
Naturally we came top of the class and graduated that very afternoon.
Leaving us with nothing to do but stroll down alongside the river.
Take in a little more of the incredible architecture.
Salute the flag.
And call it a day.
And sail off into the sunset.
Oh Boston, I do love you!
