My favorite time of year in Cambridge/Boston: The summer! I love the change in seasons throughout the year but the summers in Cambridge/Boston are second to none. The energy is amazing!

My favorite time of year at MIT/Cambridge/Kendall Sq…
I have a couple of favorites. In late spring the weather lifts your spirits after a dreary long New England winter. Kendall Square has a farmers market that is a great place to grab lunch and spend time enjoying the outdoors with colleagues. The other time of the year that I absolutely love is the Fall, particularly by the Charles River and the off the beaten path spots around campus between buildings where you find lovely courtyards with beautiful landscaping.
