I love Union Square and it has some of my favorite places (Machu Picchu, Backbar, etc.) It's just a shame it's hard to get to by public transportation!

Checked the place out while we got some donuts. Seemed newer and better kept than Davis Square. Lots of cool little shops.

Great place to go out at night for food and drinks. There is also a great farmers market on Saturdays during the warmer months.
