Jamaica Plain Boathouse and Arnold Arboretum Two of the Best Spots to Pop the Question in Boston

Last updated on September 1, 2015

The Jamaica Plain Boathouse and the Arnold Arboretum were selected as two of the top 10 places to propose to a loved one in Boston by the WeekendPick website. We couldn’t agree more!

The boathouse can be very romantic, whether it’s at sunset or during a beautiful day. Heck, even a rainy day can be very romantic at Jamaica Pond. Of course, you’ll want to make sure there aren’t any musical performances happening at the boathouse during your planned proposal time — unless that works well with your proposal.

The Arnold Arboretum has oodles of romantic spots to pop the question. There is the rose garden, atop Peters Hill, atop Bussey Hill or just a random spot that means something to the two of you.

But don’t stop at those two locations for possible places to pop the question – here are two more:

JP Licks. Seriously. Ice cream is romantic. Very sweet romance. Have a little rocky road, maybe a sundae — and then get down on one knee.

The Loring-Greenough House. Maybe you’ve enjoyed numerous Thursday nights on the grounds during the warmer weather, listening to music, dining on food truck fare — why not pop the question there? Possibly not when everyone is around. The Loring-Greenough House also hosts its fair share of weddings — so you know there’s romance in the air!

So what places did we miss? Where did you get engaged in Jamaica Plain? Leave comments below.
