The city also features a number of iconic buildings, such as the stunning King's College Chapel and the historic St. John's College.

In addition to its academic offerings, Cambridge offers a variety of outdoor spaces, including the tranquil River Cam, which is perfect for punting, and the nearby Wicken Fen Nature Reserve, which provides opportunities for nature walks and birdwatching.

Cambridge's city center is bustling with shops, restaurants, and cafes, and is home to a thriving arts and culture scene. The city is known for its many festivals and events, including the Cambridge Folk Festival and the Cambridge Literary Festival, which draw visitors from around the world.

Please note that the number of American students studying in Cambridge varies from year to year. However, Cambridge is a popular destination for American college students seeking a unique study abroad experience. It is important to take common-sense precautions when studying abroad, such as being aware of your surroundings and not walking alone late at night.
