Somerville MA, is a classic, small American city just outside of Boston. Over the years, Somerville developed a reputation as being a proud but humble city due to the hard working nature of its residents. While this reputation is still appropriate, Somerville has recently become a modern destination for arts and culture north of Boston.
Somerville borders Boston in the south and Cambridge to the west, which makes it a popular home for students, professors, and business people who prefer a short commute. Somerville’s beautiful Slyvester Baxter Riverfront Park is located along the western bank of the Mystic River. Check out this interactive map of Somerville!
The MBTA offers train service to multiple stations in Somerville, including Davis Square and Assembly Square, as well Porter Station which is just over the border in Cambridge. Somerville is about 20 minutes from Boston’s Logan International Airport.
The campus of prestigious Tufts University lies along the border of Somerville and Medford, and Harvard University and MIT are close nearby in neighboring Cambridge.
