What Makes Somerville a Great City to Live In?
Somerville is defined by its city squares. Somerville is made up of city squares such as Davis Square, Teele Square, and Union Square, where we were for Fox 25 Morning News Zip Trip on July 26. Each square offers a mix of ethnic restaurants, bars and shops and small businesses to fit every taste and occasion.
Somerville has a large immigrant population that celebrates its diversity through numerous ceremonies celebrating cultural traditions and holidays, such as the Tibet Arts and Culture Festival.
There is no shortage of activities in Somerville. Johnny D’s in Somerville has been open since 1969 and showcases musicians of all types, from folk to blues to rock. Local artists make Somerville one of the most vibrant arts centers in the country. Somerville’s arts scene is showcased each summer at the weekend-long ArtBeat Festival. Hosted by the Somerville Arts Council, ArtBeat transforms Davis Square into one of New England’s largest and most innovative arts destinations. Somerville is also host to the Fluff Festival—a series of family friendly activities that celebrates Fluff Marshmallow Crème, invented in Somerville in 1917.
The restored Somerville Theatre, built in 1914, hosts movies and live events as well as being home to the annual Independent Film Festival of Boston.
