What sets Cambridge apart?

The Rum River meanders through the 7.9 square miles of Cambridge which is also known as The Opportunity Community! We begin with the 135 year old charming and vibrant downtown to a wide variety of many excellent shoppiong areas. Cambridge has great biking, walking, skateboard, recreational fields, playground parks, and even fishing...all within City limits!

Cambridge has approximately 8,100 residents and encompasses special features that set it apart from other communities. The Rum River, a thriving downtown, many city parks, and a Performing Arts Center are just a few highlights.

As a County Seat, Cambridge is a hub for activity that has government offices, a community college, and a multi-specialty full service hospital which services more than 30,000 area residents. A new industrial park offers tax credit incentives to new businesses, and an existing industrial park houses several large corporations providing many job opportunities.
