Davis Square

Somerville’s Davis Square is one of the closest neighborhoods to Tufts, making it a popular off-campus destination for students and visitors. Catch a movie at the Somerville Theater, munch on flatbread pizza while duckpin bowling or enjoy some delicious BBQ. The 10-minute walk back to campus might do you some good after a feast in Davis!

Cambridge

Take the MBTA’s Red Line a few stops inbound and explore historic Cambridge. Visit the shops in Harvard Square, stroll along the Charles or indulge in a delicious meal at one of the many restaurants around town. The Cambridgeside Galleria has just about every store you can think of - a great place to pick up some souvenirs.

Boston

The MBTA’s Red Line will take you from Davis Square to Park Street, home of the Boston Common and the Massachusetts Statehouse. A stroll down the block will lead you to the theater district, home to off-broadway productions, or to vibrant Chinatown. If you head towards the harbor, you can visit the Boston Aquarium or explore the city’s seaport. Further north is (appropriately) the North End - Boston’s Little Italy where every doorway is an opportunity for an amazing meal and the best cannolis are filled with ricotta.
