A lovely square

Davies Square is so far my favourite place in Somerville. Lively, full of nice shops and restaurants, bars and music venues. Also the theatre is adorable.

Want to fell like you are in a small University town? Come to Davis Square where Tufts University and local residents hand out. There is a Red Line T right there. Lot's of small stores and great places to eat. You fell like you are hundreds of miles from Boston, though the accents are the same.

Life music. People walking. Interesting dining establishments. This is a great place to gather on a Friday-Saturday-Sunday with the family. Be prepared to allow time to find a parking spot.

Davis Square is also getting a lift and becoming more fun! There are lots of great restaurants and new venues for the evening. There are great coffee shops and some nice stores for gifts and other small things. They have great Ice cream store! It is worth a visit!
