Took the sunset cruise with Charles River Cruises which leaves from one end of the Cambridgeside Galleria. Had a groupon so it was very affordable. We did not realize there was no information offered on this tour. Would have been better to take sightseeing tour instead. Still a very nice way to spend 70 minutes on the river. Recommended.

Perfect spot to watch the Harvard Men's Crew practice - usually mornings and late afternoons. Amazing to watch their boats glide across the water! Coaches shout instructions from their small motorized boats. Great teamwork in action against a beautiful skyline. You can rent a boat to try too!

Boston and Cambridge are twin cities on either side of the Charles river. Great place to walk, jog or simply hand around. The sailing clubs of both MIT and Harvard have a lot of activities for its students on the Charles. Plus the parks near the river are great places for children.......
