What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Somerville

we are on public transport line and another is very near. I like that we have a walking path and people using it are more often than not v friendly

It's really close to Porter Square, Davis Square, and Harvard Square, which means that public transit is super accessible and there's a ton of restaurants, cafes, grocery stores, etc. within a 20-30 minute walk.

It is one of two of the best cities in the country. President Barack Obama lived in this city when he was a college student.

Near a library and grocery store close enough to walk to. ALso down the street and within walking distance is a creek and alongside it is a pathway which is paved for walking.

My partner and I met and fell in love here, and also gave birth to the crystallization of our love, it is a wonderful place for me

People have green lawns, neighbors say hi to each other, and every evening people are walking their dogs, going for family bike rides, etc. It's very nice.
