Highlights near Boston

Glowing Golden in the Arboretum

The Arnold Arboretum aka "The Arb" is my go-to spot when I want to get out for a walk in Jamaica Plain. Owned by Harvard and loved by all (adults, babies and dogs alike) it's a beautiful place year-round. My favorite spot is Peters Hill where you can get a sweeping view of the city. Other highlights include a bonzai collection and a hillside of lilac bushes which burst into color right around Mother's Day.
