Harvard Square is one of the most exciting and culturally rich areas in Boston, with visitors from all over the world coming to see the prestigious university for which it is named. The square itself refers not only to the beautiful grounds of Harvard University, but also to the diverse shopping and dining area that surrounds it.

The fun and funky Second Time Around in Harvard Square reflects the same diversity as the cast of characters seen strolling through the square. Students planning to move to Boston for school can find the perfect pair of 7 jeans or a sharp Tahari blazer for that college interview, while Mom can get a Lilly Pulitzer summer dress, comfy Eileen Fisher tunic, and, of course, earrings to match. The friendly staff is always happy to help you find whatever you’re looking for, from high-end brands such as Gucci and Prada, everyday essentials like James Perse, Splendid, and Michael Stars, to the perfect, sequined flapper dress from our lively vintage section.

Once your wardrobe is completely stocked, there is plenty more to check out in the area. Put your mind to work at the always-entertaining Museum of Useful Things, or check out the historic Brattle Theatre for thought-provoking independent and foreign films. Impress your friends with rare books, comics, and records from New England Comics, Raven Used Books, and Twisted Village Records. Looking for a fun night out on the town? Get your hair done at Alfred Harvard Square Salon before dining at Legal Sea Foods and grabbing a drink at Noir in the Charles Hotel. If you’re looking for something a little more laid-back, then head to Charlie’s Kitchen for a world-famous burger in their new open-air beer garden, located right next to Second Time Around.

****Metered street parking is available, but hard to come by. The Harvard Square Parking Garage is located at 20 Eliot Street, right around the corner from the store. The Harvard Square Station on the T’s Red Line can be found on JFK Street on the other side of Harvard Square’s traffic circle. Thirteen different bus lines run through Harvard Square. Consult the MBTA website for schedules and maps.
