Walk from Cambridge to Boston to enjoy the river. Lots of construction in April 2014 but a nice walk and room to look at the river and take pictures.

I stayed at a Hotel around MIT and ran along the river twice in the morning and afternoon and walked once in the evening. I think Charles river is one of the best river to run along because the town along the river is so calm and quiet but not deserted with nature.
There are always runners running along the river all the time from in the early morning to night on both holidays and weekends.
Lastly, there some beer brewery in Boston, like Samuel Adams, or Harpoon brewery. So, if you want enjoy beer after running, this is the place!

Bridge construction was a nuisance but overall a great place to enjoy Canbridge and get a flavor of the surrounding area. Check out the boat houses and watch rowers on the river.

Run or walk by the Charles. The water twinkles and smiles. There is usually a cool breeze. If you cross over to the other side you can visit Harvard Business School. If you are adventurous - you can sail on the Charles. Lovely that Cambridge has a river...
