Your family will be here for graduation in a few weeks. You’ll want to have an enjoyable and relaxing visit with them, and also deceive them into thinking that you took full advantage of the surrounding cultural and historical resources during your time here. But how?
One way is to take the clan on a digitally-guided walking tour of Old Cambridge. From now until June 1st, you can get a free download of “Beyond the Yard: A Guided Tour,” from the Cambridge Office for Tourism (after June 1st, they’re charging for it). Among the stops on the tour: the Longfellow National Historic Site, Cambridge Burying Ground, Christ Church, and JFK Park.
The tour features insights from local historians and other community leaders, and is narrated by a Harvard alumna and travel writer. Both a 60-minute version and a 90-minute version are available.
