Just north of Boston and Cambridge lies the city of Somerville. Fondly known as “Slummerville” until its renaissance in the 1990s, the city is a mishmash of wildly diverse neighborhoods that boasts one of the highest artist densities per capita of any metropolitan area in the country. This ride explores some of Somerville’s vibrant city squares, the Tufts University campus at its center, and the Mystic River and Alewife Brook that make up the city’s borders.
