The city’s amenities are easily accessible by foot or car from a number of budget Cambridge hotels which you can book through for significant savings.A popular Cambridge attraction is the Wings of Paradise butterfly conservatory where visitors can stroll among butterflies in a lush, indoor tropical setting. Another is the Cambridge Farmers’ Market, in operation since 1830 and the third-oldest farmers’ market in the country, where you can buy fresh foods and hand-crafted items in a friendly, old-time country atmosphere. Cambridge also hosts a number of festivals throughout the year. In summer, the Millrace Festival of Traditional Folk Music features locally and internationally acclaimed artists who reflect the cultures and musical traditions of the surrounding areas.
