Irving House at Harvard is close to Harvard Square, and across that is Harvard Square, the commercial center where theaters, restaurants and shops all offer hours and days of diversions. Irving House is also within walking distance of Inman Square, which has a more local vibe. It, too, has great restaurants, pubs and shops. Not far away is Central Square which is also a transit center with buses going to adjacent towns. There you can find a variety of shopping, dining and theater options that suit most needs. Kendall Square and Porter Square are also not far from us. The options are endless~!
