In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

Overall, Cambridge is a very diverse town culturally, religiously & racially. Most folks get along very well, however, there are -- like most places, some who will cause some trouble. But, this is very minimal in Cambridge. Not like other cities such as Manchester & London. They always have racial attacks in those towns.

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

Cambridge University is the main employer & there quite a few national & international companies in the research parks around town. Everything else is service oriented -- clubs, hotels, tourism.

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

From what I've observed is either you're working very hard to make ends meet, or you're with the university as either a student or facilty member, again working very hard. The younger set does play a lot, especially on weekend nights. In fact, they almost take over the streets till about 2am.

If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

Bring plenty of starter money. Most homes and rental properties are out of reach for the average white or blue collar worker within Cambridge. They further out you go, the more affordable it gets, but then you have the commute time & costs to absorb.
