This is basically a School town, with that I would say jobs are possible to obtain through the universities,and City Hall. If you plan to open up your own business than I say there are plenty of opportunities for you here. My Own School offers self starters in their owned buildings, and in my field of Holistic alternatives Cambridge is opening up to possible job opportunity in this field. We have a couple of Bio labs which are looking for applicants continuously from time to time, which advancement seems to be the reason for this opportunity. Clothing stores have a turnover consistency way to often to count, as well as different chain Restaurants like Wendy's, Burger King, Subway and Kentucky Fried Chicken which Cambridge feels has no place here with it's residence wanting more healthier choices and verity working with its local farmers, private and public gardeners.

We are surrounded by many different shops, salons, grocery stores, Pizza places, Indian restaurants, etc. We are not far from the main shopping area for Cambridge that is Central Square and Kendall square as well as Harvard Square. Though the prices are high now than they were when we first moved here and the business's have changed hands many times. We have also lost business and family owned ones in the last couple of years. The area has become more non family structured than it was in the past years and more student needs verses family necessity. Our biggest company store that is accessed frequently is The family Dollar with it's many choices at almost-low prices if it was not for the fact they have gone up closely to the supermarket costs for a good deal of their items. Our Restaurants are pretty good but not great were we are specifically, we have an Indian, Japanese, Korean, Moroccan, Brazilian, and Italian restaurants near by, there is also a Vegan menu oriented one just a street over from my home. The neighborhood is basically quite in the evenings after the end of the day business traffic has died down.
We have Four Seasons, Winter has been pretty great until the last two winter which we have seen bad snow storms. The snow storms have not impacted this town from clearing out the snow and continuing on with classes and business that much. Springs are slow in coming as of late but it also has a hard time leaving during the summer months, so is the summer months which does not recede until late fall. Our fall are spectacular, with the leaves changing colors, to the warm weather, the winter harvest and events that are scheduled around these seasons are mostly never changed. Are weather is mostly a set pattern of season that never really surprises it's residents much or hits our history books to often as unpredictable. When they say April showers bring May Flowers it is right on point, we are right now experiencing those April Showers, in like a Lion out like a Lamb.
