SITE VISIT: Jamaica Plain

I live in a great neighborhood. It's easy to forget how lucky I am to live in such a great place, so I thought I would stroll the main drag and take a moment to appreciate all the places I love in Jamaica Plain. So here we go...your own private tour of all the mainstay JP spots.
The 39 bus travels down Cenre Street in JP. Along the way there is Salmagundi, an amazing hat shop, and right next door is VeeVee, our absolute favorite spot to have dinner.
City Fee And Supply is a smaller grocer and sandwich place with the best sandwiches in town. Get the Turkey with Apple and Brie! Oh so delicious.
The Galway House is a JP classic. On any given afternoon you will find a colorful cast of characters at this old school bar. But go for the craft beer! The selection is always great.
Penny stops for water at Station 8, a very hip hair salon.
 If it's antiques you seek, stop in at Cobwebs. You will find lovely,unique things and cut flowers. Although if it's flowers you need, stop in at New Leaf, a pretty little shop owned by two super friendly gentlemen who know lots and lots about flowers.
Your sink sprung a leak, head to the Yumont True Value Hardware. They have at least one of everything you will ever need. But really, I just go for Benjamin Moore Paint. It's the best.
Boomerangs and Goodwill are our stops for gently used goods.
Penny loves this stretch of South Street! There is the Polka Dog Bakery with all kinds of treats for the pups. And she loves good design and art too! Aviary is a tiny little gem, gallery/shop. It has unique little finds. Then we hit the Hallway Gallery for well curated art and Room 68 for everything new in design. There is also Ferris Wheels, a bike shop! Yep, we have one of those too. Stop in and fill up your tires with complimentary compressed air.

Blanchard Liquors is a great stop for wine and beer. Ask the staff for help when you need a recommendation.

So these spots are all along the main drag. They are the staples of JP life. But, that's not all there is.
Stay tuned to find out about all the hidden gems you may not have heard of.
And, if you stop by this part of town, don't miss all the nature spots. There is Jamaica Pond of course and the Arnold Arboretum. Hope to see you around!
