About Scout Cambridge

Scout Cambridge is a hyperlocal, bimonthly magazine that’s distributed for free throughout the city of Cambridge.

Our goal is to fill the gaps left by 30,000-foot publications by highlighting community members and businesses on the street level. In print and online, we scour the many communities that make up the People’s Republic for human-driven stories. We believe that every city deserves a publication that speaks straight to them—and that looks good doing it—and our small team strives to deliver just that.

Launched in 2013, Scout was originally direct mailed to every Cambridge resident; as of November 2015, more than 50,000 copies are available for pickup at area businesses and in drop boxes all over the city.

Our sister publication, Scout Somerville, brings the same hyperlocal flavor to our neighbor to the north.
