The Charles River is the body of water seperating the city of Boston from communities such as Cambridge and Somerville.

The Charles River is to Boston what the River Thames is to London. It is one of the distintive landmarks (or would that be watermark?) of the city. In fact it gives Boston more of that Boston quality. It's a little hard to describe. The river and the city fit well together.

The Head of the Charles Regatta is held on this river every fall, inviting rowers from all over the world.

If you fall into the river, you probably don't want to swallow the water.
