“From a business owner's perspective, I've had businesses in two other towns and neither can hold a candle to what Somerville has to offer. The support from the DSA is unsurpassed and the camaraderie among businesses leads to a tight knit, supportive community. For the patron, Somerville has it all. Restaurants, shopping, festivals, car shows, movie nights, comedy nights, jazz fest...I could go on and on.”
