Things To Do


Food & Drink

Trillium Brewing Company

100 Royall St, Canton, MA 02021

Delicious seasonal farm-to-table food, some vegetarian, vegan, and g-f options, and of course, beer and spirits. Indoor and outdoor seating options, plenty of space, and room for kids to run on the lawn. An easy 6 min walk from the hotel in Canton.

Shanti Boston

4197 Washington st, Roslindale, MA 02131

Our favorite Indian food in the area. Multiple locations and take out / delivery available.

Sweet Rice Boston

697 Centre St., Boston, MA 02130

Sushi Bar + Thai Kitchen. A lovely, yummy, locally-owned business in Jamaica Plain. We can't get enough of their fresh avocado rolls. Multiple locations and take out / delivery available.

Blue Nile

389 Centre St, Boston, MA 02130

Excellent locally-owned Ethiopian right in Jamaica Plain.


Outdoor & Nature

Blue Hills Reservation

A favorite spot of ours! 125 miles of trails that will take you over hills, through marshes, across meadows, around tranquil lakes, and more.

Arnold Arboretum

Gorgeous spot to stroll in Jamaica Plain.

Say "hi" to the Boston Harbor and Atlantic!

There are great beaches nearby, including Quincy Beach (lots of parking, more urban), riding a ferry to the Harbor Islands, or heading to the North Shore (Wingaersheek, Crane, and Singing Beaches are all gorgeous but a longer drive).
