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

You can always count on the 99 for good food, free popcorn, one dollar cheese and cracker plate, cold beer or a good drink, and friendly atmosphere. Their salads are excellent as is their baked scrod. They have plenty of Televisions so you can catch whatever sporting event that interests you! There are 99 good reasons to visit the 99!

I really like to go out here, have some dinner and then move from bar to bar and chat with friends. I like the Boston Burger Company to start with and then move on to the bars in the neighborhood.

If you enjoy trying all different ethnic foods this is the place to go. A great place for date night as you can find food, music, shows and great places for a drink. If you're into finding inexpensive books, clothes and treasures try the Goodwill Store, you never know what you might find! I grew up in Davis Square during... More

I enjoy Davis Square. It is clean and safe and there is always something you can do. Their restaurants vary from fast food chains to casual dining. There are also a few shops to pop into.

People love it there especially the younger generation 30-40. There are a lot of places to eat, a movie theater, Johnny D's with great entertainment. I live in Somerville right up the street from Davis Square. There is something for everyone. A pizza place with a bowling alley inside, ice cream shop, starbucks, and bars.
