Davis square is a fun place to be. Lots of restaurants and shops. You see people from all walks of life. Very Live and energetic. I have noticed that Boston has lots of areas called squares that people gather and mingle. Highly recommend Davis Square.

Davis Sq. is the best place to live and play in all of the greater Boston area. Tasty. Fun. Cool places to explore. A mix of weird, old, new, classy and tacky. Best coffee shops. A great movie theater with beer and ice cream and really bad art. Families and college kids and hipsters and artists and professionals. Honk and a bunch of other fests. Accessible by red line, not far from 93, Rt 2, or the pike.

Lots of funky little nooks and crannies, fun restaurants, pubs and bars, if you are bored in Boston area you can always find something to do,eat and drink. Just minutes from Boston, near Tufts and Cambridge. Safe and pretty clean, parking not too bad. During day they have public parking with pay parking not too much of a hassle, you don't have to take out a loan to park just a couple of bucks for a few hours. have fun!

I am a local so Davis Square is where I go for most everything when it comes to entertainment. There are countless restaurants, cafes, bars, theater, a gym, pharmacy. Its considered Tufts students local square but as a resident of the neighborhood it is where everyone congregates. There is a good independent vibe despite many local and national chains. It is not the prettiest square around but it has become one of the best in the recent past.

Before Harvard Square was inundated by the Gap, Anthropologie, and GNC...it was cool. hip. quirky. Basically, it looked much like Davis Square looks today. Davis Square has a Starbucks and Chipolte (yes) but it also has that wonderful melting-pot quality (i.e.: a pawn shop, a meat outlet, a Dollar Store, and various other 100-year-old store fronts that are dusty and dank). Is Davis Square gentrifying? Yes. Are the Tufts students annoying? Yes. (but not as pretentious as Harvard students.) Davis Square is still cool as hell...so get yourself over here. Stat.
