I'm a professor at one of the local universities and a long-time Cambridge resident. I live with my 19-year old daughter on the second floor at 64 Granville Road. We enjoy sharing our "Cambridge tips" with all of our visitors: where to ice-skate in winter or rent a canoe in summer, the best local places for cheese, bread, and yummy ethnic take-out treats. We can lend you bikes and direct you to the Minuteman Bikeway, an 11-mile shady ride through Arlington, Lexington and Bedford, or give you a couple of sleds and show you the hill at Fresh Pond. Whatever the season, we look forward to welcoming you when you're in Cambridge.
