Great place to chill out and get a delicious meal: Boston Burger Company, Flatbread Company (bowling is fun too), Posto and The Painted Burro.

I love Davis Square! As a Boston local I tend to end up here a lot! There are many fantastic restaurants with distinct cuisines and atmospheres. The bar/nightlife scene is a bit limited but I usually come to Davis for lunch, dinner, or afternoon wanderings.

Busy place, packed with plenty of places to go. Variety of coffee shops, restaurants, etc. Parking is available, but may be hard to find a spot. Lots of one way streets.

Great neighborhood, lots to do. No shortage of places to eat. I've got friends in the area and we have our hangouts, but sometimes we try new things and I'm yet to be dissappointed. Lots of hipsters. Parking can be tough.

Restaurants, bars, shops and atmosphere are what Davis Square is all about. An eclectic mix of young professionals, college students and others make this area a very interesting one!

Go to the city's website - Somerville, and find the locations of the parking lots. Keep in mind that many of the streets are one way. If you skip it, you have to circle around. It's not a long distance from lot to lot, you... More
