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

I love J.P. Licks here, also they have the Somerville Theater which has new movies and old ones as well as performances. Also the entrance to the bike path is here so you can bike/run here. They have a farmers market at the parking lot by Sacco's Bowling which has lots of fresh ingredients and delicious Taza Chocolate.

Harvard Square and the Back Bay having now priced themselves out of the stratosphere for independent restaurants and retailers, the latter have been casting around for a new hub where they can thrive. Davis Square, only just over a mile as the crow flies from Harvard and on the fast and efficient MBTA Red Line, has caught this wave and... More

Boy, Davis Square sure has changed! The red line stops in two locations here. There are a lot of buses that begin and end in a lot next to the College Ave red line station entrance/exit. There is a theater with first-run movies and concerts, also offering the mouth-watering Richardson's ice cream (competing with J.P. Licks directly across the street).... More

With a bunch of restaurants, cafes, bars, ice cream, movies and small stores, this area is excellent to trolling around, see people and things, and then have some nice food.

We were recently staying in nearby Medford but had to travel to the Davis Square subway station frequently in order to get Red Line subway trains into Boston. The trains always seemed to run frequently but the Service 96 bus that we had to take to and from to Medford was more often late than on time. Could do better... More

Great for Dates or lazy days in town. THere are many quaint shops and great places to eat. But, bring your checkbook - this hipster paradise is not cheap
