This grassy, 25-acre college quad is the oldest part of the oldest university in the country. Visit the yard’s landmarks, such as the John Harvard statue, the Tercentenary Theater, and Massachusetts Hall, the longest standing building on campus. To get the lowdown on all 400 years of Harvard history, I recommend the Cambridge Historical Tours’ guided walk through the grounds, led by a costume-clad guide full of clever wit and charming stories.
