Cambridge is a part of Boston and the best time to visit the city is from late May to October, which is the summertime, and the weather is pleasant. It is good to go and explore the town on feet and enjoy the Freedom Trail that takes one around the city’s historic places. The winters (late-October to February) are pretty cold and wet, and hence most of the attractions are either closed or have reduced operating hours. Further, the snow and rains make it difficult to experience the beauty of the city. However, when it comes to the museums, the summers are a peak time for visitors, so for a quieter experience, one can pick early winters and weekdays.
