It's pretty amazing to see the oldest college in America. It's great to go during the fall so you can see the rowers out on the river, and students all around. Some really nice quads, and ask anyone with a backpack for suggestions on the most beautiful architecture to visit.

A really beautiful campus to visit on a nice day. In my opinion the best thing to do is rent bikes and ride along the Charles River from Boston proper out to the Harvard campus and soak it all in that way.

We wandered through Harvard Yard at about 9 PM in the summer. Campus was pretty dead. Amazing architecture, adding to the "coolness factor" of being on campus at Harvard! I would love to go back during the daytime.

Such a beautiful campus! It's a great place to walk around and enjoy all the old architecture and take in all the history.
