Tips from locals
The Arboretum is a lovely spot for the family to enjoy. It has 1100 acres of parks and waterways. A beautiful place!
Harvard's heartbreakingly beautiful collection of international trees and plants, another "link" in Frederick Law Olmstead's beautiful Emerald Necklace. Stunning at any time of year, free and open to the public, full of animals; lose yourself here. A 22-minute walk from home.
This is an arboretum curated by Harvard University, comprising hundreds of acres of trees collected from all over the world for over a century by the university's botanists. The walking trails meander through the naturalistic landscape, designed by Frederick Law Olmstead: the country's first…
This is a five minute walk from this property. It has amazing views and great trip to see the outdoors and botanical gardens and trees in an urban environment.
An absolute oasis in the middle of the city. Absolutely beautiful place to walk, bike, read etc. try and go deep into it and not just on the periphery near the entrance, Although that’s fine too.

“The 1.5-mile loop around the pond is a beautiful walk any time of year, and the nearest part of the stunning "Emerald Necklace" of parks and ponds encircling Jamaica Plain. Full of aquatic birds, turtles, and other animals; a 9-minute walk from home.”

Ice Cream Shop
“Can't go wrong with J.P. Licks ice cream. There are two local spots. Jamaica Plain is where you will find their 1st shop. You may also head over to JP Licks in Mission Hill/Tremont which is closer to our neighborhood”

“Truly exquisite Spanish tapas and drinks, with a lovely book and record shop in the back, three blocks from home. Wonderful ambience, and prettiest patio in the neighborhood. The crown jewel of Jamaica Plain, in my opinion.”

“Before Samuel Adams, American Beer was made fun of by Europeans as "It's fucking close to water". Come see how Samuel Adams changed that around and went on to win first place as the “Best Beer in America” at the Great American Beer Festival after being in business for only three months!”

New American Restaurant
“Top of the line restaurant with you guessed it, only 10 tables. They have added a tiny bar area. Highly recommended. A bit pricey. Reservations required.”
