About the neighborhood:
Tufts is located near the Davis Square T stop on the Red Line, which connects us to Harvard (2 stops away), MIT (2 more stops), and downtown Boston. Davis Square is one of the most vibrant spots in Cambridge/Somerville, featuring such neighborhood favorites as the Diesel Cafe, movies and concerts at the Somerville Theater, ice cream at JP Licks, and pizza and candlepin bowling at Flatbread/Sacco's Bowl Haven. A bike path runs through Davis that connects up to the popular Minuteman Bikeway.
