One Day at Harvard University
Harvard Yard? John Harvard Statue? The COOP? Yes, they’re must-see locations at Harvard University. But don’t you want a special Harvard tour where there are few people and more fun? You need a local guide, especially someone who went to Harvard. This 20-year-old Latvian guy went to a summer program there in 2014. He made this video to show his daily life at the Harvard campus. You can get a sneak peak of a Harvard dorm, classroom, dinning hall, lab, and more!
Here is another one he made for the city of Boston.
MIT Student-led Campus Tour Guide

The Other Side of MIT: Public Art
MIT is known as a technology hub, but it’s also a public art palace.
Kayaking on the Charles River
On the Charles River, you can enjoy the view of Boston skyline and Cambridge campuses at the same time. Fancy cruises, old-fashioned riverboats or romantic gondolas would be good choices. However, for extra fun, I highly recommend kayaking/paddling on the Charles. Here is a time-lapse video made by Josh Schneider as he kayaked round-way from Broad Canal to Harvard University. If you’re energetic enough, you can go all the way to Boston Harbor:
