We recommend visiting Cambridge in the mid spring when temperatures are mild but accommodations are less expensive. During this period, a hotel room costs around $165/night. That's $10 cheaper compared to July. Average temperatures hover in the low 50s, a lot cooler than the average 80°F you would get during high season.
Most tourists visit Cambridge in the late spring/summer. This is the busiest season so make sure to book your accommodation early. If you're on a budget, try avoiding the Marathon week (April 13th - 18th), the Labor Day week (September 1st - 6th) as well as the May Graduations week (May 17th - 26th) since accommodation rates peak the most during these times.
Be prepared for some snowfalls if you go to Cambridge between November and March.
