Destination guide

Somerville, where cultures meet on the squares

This nugget of central Boston is fascinating place. From the patriotic sights of Prospect Hill to the quirky sculptures of Davis Square, it rings with such a multicultural vibe that you could almost be forgiven for wondering if you were even in Massachusetts at all. There are New Orleans jazz fests and Bavarian beer blowouts in the yearly calendar, and Thai tapas joints and Mexican fajita holes down the streets, all mingling with bohemian coffee haunts between the Boston rowhouses and stylish Somerville vacation rentals.

Things to do

Vaudeville theaters meet shopping strips in Somerville

An evening fix of culture at the Center for Arts at the Armory is virtually compulsory – expect beat poets mingling with opera tenors on the stages. Or, just stick to the local vaudevillians in the famous Somerville Theatre, which stands right above the quirky and controversial Museum of Bad Art. You'll also need to prep the credit card for that retail blowout in the all-new Assembly Row, the latest of many cutting-edge shopping developments along the bends of the Mystic River. Alternatively, just distract yourself – and the whole family – with a jaunt to the LEGOLAND Discovery Center that's on site.


Get multicultural in Somerville

Whether you're jigging in the October jazz fest or getting a dose of the old vaudeville in Davis Square, you can rest assured that Somerville has plenty of classic American entertainments up its sleeve. Then comes the multicultural edge of the place, popping up in the form of Cuban dance nights and global DJ shows, in quirky Danish toy workshops and carbon-neutral hipster cafés that seem plucked straight out of London. Somerville's shopping is also great, thanks to the boho boutiques of the Mystic River developments, while Somerville vacation rentals on Prospect Hill boast awesome sunset views over downtown Boston.


Somerville is perfect in summer

To really feel the beating pulse of this bohemian enclave of Boston city at its most lively, be sure to go in search of those Somerville vacation rentals during the summertime. Between June and August, the town erupts with festivals and ad hoc arts shows. It's when you'll hear the sound of jazz echoing through the streets, and get to wallow on the banks of the Mystic River in open-air cafés with the other residents of the district. It simply can't be beaten for entertainment.

Natural features

Between the city and the Mystic River in Somerville

While the eastern side of Somerville is dominated by the high-rises of downtown Boston, the north side of the district is given over to the meanders of the Mystic River. Here, state reservations and parks have running tracks and boating piers aplenty. However, the closest real wilderness to Somerville is surely up with the Middlesex Fells Reservation. Sprawling over 2,500 acres, it's got cross-country ski routes, pine forests, sailing lakes, and more than 100 miles of demarked hiking paths.
