Where you’ll be

Somerville, Massachusetts, United States

With Harvard, Union, Inman and Porter Squares 15-20 minute walks away, many restaurants, shopping, live music and performance venues and academic institutions are close by.

There are 3 grocery stores in the area- Star Market (a 5 minute walk), Market Basket (a 10 min walk) and Whole Foods (a 12 min walk).

Some of our neighborhood favorites include:

Aeronaut Brewery is a brewpub started by MIT chemical engineering students. A 7-minute walk, they have many performance events and interesting tastings.

Brooklyn Boulders is a modern climbing gym which also houses a yoga studio, pour-over coffee bar, and co-working space. Right next to Aeronaut, ideal for post-workout beers!

There are many other great cafés, restaurants and fun activities in walking distance; we're happy to share recommendations.
