Bentley’s hometown is a hotspot for young professionals. Downtown Waltham offers dining, arts and shopping — right down the street from campus. With more than 100 restaurants, the city’s vibrant dining scene features everything from tapas to barbecue to Mexican. If you’re in the mood for cultural attractions, take in a performance by the Reagle Players, catch the latest indie film at the Embassy Cinema, or visit the Waltham Museum to get a feel for local history. For great shopping, hit the stores on Moody Street.
The Bentley shuttle drops you off directly in Harvard Square in Cambridge, a world-renowned shopping, dining and cultural destination. Brick sidewalks lead to hundreds of restaurants and stores; there are also a variety of eclectic street performers. Harvard Square is also home to a number of special events such as Harvard Square Day, Mayfair, and Oktoberfest.
The city is just a quick subway ride away from Harvard Square — and once you’re there, the possibilities are nearly endless. As the largest city in New England, Boston boasts world-class shopping, delicious restaurants, championship sporting events, and numerous historic attractions and museums. The city is also a great place to look for jobs and internships — EMC, Gillette, Reebok, Staples, Street and TJX Companies are just a few of the employers headquartered locally.
