Welcome To Somerville

In 2006, Somerville was named the best-run city in Massachusetts by the Boston Globe.

In 1972, in 2009, and again in 2015, the city received the All-America City Award. Close to world-class colleges and universities such as Harvard, MIT, and Tufts University.

Somerville is unbelievably mobile. It’s pedestrian-friendly with easy access to Boston’s MBTA Red Line and bus routes. Having a car isn’t a chore like it might be in Boston, and best of all, it’s a biker’s paradise. The tree-lined Somerville Community Path connects you with the rest of Boston on a scenic rail trail.
