Commonly called JP, Jamaica Plain combines enchanting outdoor respites with 19th century triple-decker apartments, homegrown restaurants and parlors, and casual dives. The neighborhood’s mild-mannered community can be found mingling in their beloved public green spaces, Jamaica Pond and Arnold Arboretum. Despite its robust natural attractions, this neighborhood seldom feels crowded. Looking for fast paced urban environs? The rush of Downtown is just a half hour T-ride away.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
