Shopping, Entertainment, and Dining Treat- Assembly Row

If you haven’t been there yet, you have to check out Assembly Row in Somerville!  I’ve been going there for HomeGoods and Bed Bath & Beyond since I moved to Boston.  Recently, they’ve added so much awesome shopping & great restaurants that I find myself going there all the time.   It’s 5 minutes over the Boston border and very easily accessible because:

  • They have a huge FREE parking garage and outdoor lots.(It’s high tech too- you’re signaled to open spots that are lit in green.)
  • They have an Assembly Row T-stop on the orange line now!
  • It’s close enough to take a taxi or Uber without it costing you.
  • It’s getting nice out, so why not bike along the Mystic River.  Check out our post on the pros of biking.
The restaurants and bars are amazing.
  • Earls might be my favorite, but it’s hard to choose.  It has amazing food (especially brunch), an open layout with center bar and open kitchen, cool art on the menus, and the drinks are delicious…and funny.





Other faves include:
Pick up a venti caramel macchiato (yes, there is a Starbucks too) and you can head to some of these shops to easily spend your money.  There is something for everyone and if you have kids, you can keep them occupied (or bribe them to be patient while you shop) by bringing them to Legoland!
The store directory is below.


Some of my fave shops include:
  • Saks Off Fifth
  • Nike
  • Express
  • Adidas
  • Bed Bath & Beyond
  • HomeGoods (TJ Maxx)
My personal favorite part of assembly row is the AMC movie theater. I swear you won’t want to go anywhere else after you’ve been here.  Features include:
  • Reclining stadium seats


  • Bar in the movie theater


  • Free refills on large popcorn


  • 3D IMAX movies
