“Good shops, good food”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

If you're looking for an afternoon of trendy independent shops, Davis Square is great. Lots of clothing stores and unique restaurants to try. There's also a nice independent movie theater. It has its own T station on the Red Line, which is good because parking is often scarce.

“Don't drive to Davis Square!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Davis square is a great spot with fantastic restaurants, eclectic shops and a couple of independent theaters. Parking is extremely difficult to find, though, and the meter maids are out in full force! If you plan on visiting Davis Square your best bet is to take the red line.

“Thriving and fun”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Lots of local shops and pubs. Largely a 25-35 crowd with good conversations available at the local pubs. Plenty of public transportation. Enjoy the non-mall retail experience!

“Lots to do”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Davis is a great place to hang out on a Friday/Saturday night. There are a few good bars in the area, JP Licks is great ice cream, and the Somerville Theater is an awesome little place to go see movies. I do wish there were better food options, the dining isn't as great as it is in some areas of Cambridge but I think it's improving with the addition of M3 and Posto.
