Once the media calls it hip, it's no longer hip. But it's still fun.

Davis Square is a popular Somerville neighborhood - particularly with the college crowd. It has a nice diverse mix of good restaurants, bars, clubs, funky neighborhood cinema (including MOBA - Museum Of Bad Art), eclectic shopping and a lively vibe. The streets are alive after 5, especially on weekends. You can drive there, but the public transit train and buses... More

Davis Square in Somerville MA is easy to walk and easy to park. McKinnon's Market has a nice deli for a picnic lunch. The Somerville Theater in the area is air conditioned. Other restaurants in the area are plentiful. A small park offers many concerts during the weekends. The red line subway station is located right next to the park... More

It still has some of it's charm. However, it's becoming "trendy". Personally "Sessa's" & "McKinnon's" are the two "go to" places for me. And neither has ever failed me. With great selection & prices. I love Mike's BUT that place can be hit or miss depending on who is working.

There are a lot of bars, restaurants, cafe. The best ice cream I ever had was there, at the Ben & Jerry's. There is a CSV and at least grocery store close to the T station.

Mike's hands down tends to be one of the best places in the square (In my humble opinion.) Decent food, affordable prices, and daily specials.

There are a lot of restaurants and pubs in the Davis Square area of Somerville. Some of the best food in town can be found here at the Boston Burger Company and Redbones and Rosebud and way too many other places to mention. If you are looking for a place to go, where you can walk in 5 minutes from... More

I lived in DSquare and to date is my favorite neighborhood in Somerville/Boston area. There is so much happening throughout the year but my absolute favorite weekend is Honk Festival. Activist Brass bands come from all over the world to perform. Honk Fest bands perform at various locations all over Davis and on Sunday there is a parade all the... More

This is the greatest neighborhood. Check out all the restaurants--Posto for a treat, Saloon for some bourbon, Flatbread pizza for bowling while you eat, Diesel Cafe for coffee and pool. Shops--Dave's pasta, The Shaker for all things mixed drinks, the bike path, Johnny D's for great music, The Somerville theater for concerts, terrific movies, and the Museum of Bad Art... More
