Breaking into a new home is tough! Whether you've lived here for years or are just moving in, it can be hard to feel like you know your city.....until now.Spend an afternoon getting the lay of the land in Cambridge and Somerville. Meet the key players, discover the stories behind the businesses, and uncover new opportunities to plug in. Here's what your day might look like:

Eat: Lunch from a couple of the city's hottest restaurants, while meeting the owners and learning their stories

Plug in: Hear from some of your elected officials and community organizers, as they break down how local politics works and where you can get involved

Learn: Go back in time with a historical tour of a local neighborhood, getting a glimpse at what it looked like 20, 50, and 100 years ago

Belong (and drink): End the day with a couple of beers with your new friends at one of Cambridgeville's coolest watering holes
