Jamaica Plain is Anything But Plain in Our Eyes…

Did you know that Jamaica Plain was originally part of Roxbury, and was founded centuries ago by Boston Puritans looking for farm land to the south? Who knew? But I bet there’s a lot more facts you didn’t know about this historic area than that. For one, this Boston neighborhood has come a long way from the age of the Puritans, and is now buzzing with people and things to do left and right. With today’s CoupMe deals we bring you the best of Jamaica Plain, getting you three unbeatable deals to choose from: $10 for $20 at Ghazal Indian Cuisine, $45 for a consultation, session and $50 voucher to Living Life Coaching and $25 for five classes to Blissful Monkey Yoga Studio. 

While CoupMe agrees that these deals are, without a doubt, fabulous, that’s not all there is to do in this hopping area! Read on to learn of some other things to do around JP, many of which are absolutely F-R-E-E…

For one, Jamaica Plain is the home of the lovely Arnold Arboretum, 265-acres of beautiful landscape that’s open from sunrise to sunset daily, 365 days of the year. Oh, and did we mention it’s free to visit? Grab a few friends and head over to explore the gardens, learn a little culture, and most of all have fun doing something out of the norm. Outdoor lovers will also want to check out Jamaica Pond, the perfect little spot to go for a run, have a cozy fall picnic (think: hot chocolate), or catch up on some people or dog-watching. 

More a fan of staying indoors in the cold weather for some good ol’ retail therapy? You won’t want to miss 40 South Street, a hip vintage clothing store with amazing sales and unique finds. This hot spot isn’t your usual consignment shop, and has been raved about in the Boston Globe, Daily Candy and Stuff at Night. 

And for all the beer-lovers out there, Jamaica Plain is also home to the famous Samuel Adams Brewery. Stop by for one of their upcoming tours where you’re sure to have a good time on Thursday November 25th (Thanksgiving day), Friday December 10th, or Saturday December 25th (Christmas). Here you’ll experience the brewing process, taste the malts and sample some award-winning brews

Well there you have it. See, told you there was a lot more to JP than meets the eye. To browse today’s CoupMe deals now, go here. Oh, and have a wonderful Monday everyone!
