Kirkland House; Cambridge, Mass.

Walk to the end of Dunster Street in Cambridge, Mass. to find Kirkland House, one of the more sought after undergraduate houses at Harvard University. It also happens to be the dormitory where Mark Zuckerberg co-founded Facebook, along with a few classmates, in 2004. What started as a small University-focused social networking site burgeoned to more than 500 million users in 2010 [source: Facebook].

Though there's no official tour of Zuckerberg's scholarly housing unit (since university students continue to live there), you can still stroll the famous Harvard campus where more than one famous technophile has studied. If you're looking for a great nerdy hangout for lunch, go to the Miracle of Science Bar and Grill for its "geek-chic" atmosphere where you order from a menu designed like the periodic table of elements.
