About Us

The Cambridge Office for Tourism is responsible for all destination marketing, public relations, and visitor services for Cambridge, Massachusetts. We enrich the City of Cambridge by promoting its many special attractions and cultural amenities for the enjoyment of both residents and visitors. The office is responsible for fulfillment of visitor requests, development of new visitor information materials, attracting convention and business meetings, as well as the operation of a Visitor Information Center in the heart of Harvard Square.

This website features editorial articles by knowledgeable “Cambridge Insiders” that highlight local-approved places, attractions, restaurants, and events. We also provide helpful information for planning group tours, weddings, and other celebrations. Our print publications include a Cambridge bookstore guide, a seasonal Calendar of Events, a marketing brochure, a dining guide, a historical walking guide, and a comprehensive Visitors Guide.

By coordinating tourism marketing efforts, we increase recognition of Cambridge as an important component of the Greater Boston destination, thereby developing a stable and consistent tourism base in the local economy.

We have partnerships with the Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Center (GBCVB), the Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism, the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce, and the Cambridge Hotel Association, among others. Funded primarily through grants from the City of Cambridge and the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority (MCCA), the Cambridge Office for Tourism exists as a 501c(6) non-profit organization.

Information on our website is supplied by regional tourism councils, travel-related businesses and attractions, and not-for-profit organizations. Although every effort is made to verify information, the Cambridge Office for Tourism does not guarantee the accuracy of information nor should listings and links to other sites and services be considered as endorsements or recommendations. Banners, coupons, and sponsor messages are provided by paid advertisers. Links are provided as an information service only, and it is the sole responsibility of the user to investigate and evaluate any and all offers, services, products, statements, information, and content of linked pages. We provide links to all accommodations and attractions that are listed on the site and that provide us with a valid URL. We encourage linked accommodations and attractions to provide a reciprocal link by calling the office. We will provide other links to selected sites that provide consumers with substantial Cambridge travel destination content not included on our website and whose content is accurate, user-friendly, and presents a positive image of Cambridge as a travel destination and whose primary focus is providing consumer information. We retain the right to reject any reciprocity of links whose sites violate the principles that govern the Office for Tourism or that the office does not see as a benefit to the mission of the Cambridge Office for Tourism.
