Cambridge: Harvard SquareImage by wallyg via Flickr

For those of you that don't know, there are two Harvard Squares in the Boston area.  One is where you'd expect it to be (in Cambridge). 

The other one is in Charlestown.

I looked up Harvard Square on Google Maps, printed my directions, and stored them in my travel folder.  I was set – right?


The Harvard Square that comes up first on Google Maps isn't the one in Cambridge!

Google Maps never alerted me that I had two Harvard Squares from which to choose.  In fact, Google defaulted to the more remote location (so I missed my lunch date).

I blame myself.  I should have been more careful.

I am just amazed at how blindly I relied on Google to give me the right answer.  I'll certainly be more careful next time!
