Davis Square

Davis Square has been revitalized in the past 20 years—yet still retained its independent spirit—so that it is almost to the point of being called “the new Harvard Square.” Close to Tufts University and North Cambridge, Davis is home to a number of independent retailers and restaurants, including Irish pubs like The Burren, which features Irish folk music, and Johnny D’s jazz club. The center of the square is often a venue for music in the summertime, such as the HONK! Festival, and permanently home to the ice cream shop J.P. Lick’s and the Somerville Theater, a cinema that plays both contemporary and classic films. The Minuteman Bike trail runs right through the Square, making for an easy escape into nature. http://yourdavissquare.com/
