For anyone visiting Somerville for the first time, DEFINITELY check out Davis Square. It's kind of the hub of restaurants and stores in the area, and right on the red line. Tons of great food spots here, and a very friendly, community vibe.

Another Somerville institution. Competes with Union for festivals. Tons of great food, beer, bowling, movies, theater, and drama! Rarely disappoints. Track down the Museum of Bad Art if it is still there.

Stayed at an AirBnB location a block from Davis Square. Subway ride to/from Davis Sq was convenient. Plenty of shops in the Square area to serve most any need.

It's worthwhile heading to Davis Square for a variety of reasons, whether that's for food and drink, breakfast, dinner, groceries... the place has the lot. Albeit it's not a massive place, it's well worth a visit to hang out in.
