Off The Beaten Path Food Tours – Jamaica Plain, Boston Food Tour

It's a known secret that Jamaica Plain -- or "JP" to the locals -- has some of the tastiest and freshest food in Boston, but it's a bit hidden from the "beaten path" destinations such as nearby Fenway Park. In fact, some JP residents want to keep it that way, and this tight-knit community is definitely keen on preserving the neighborly feel. Originally part of Roxbury, Jamaica Plain was first home to wealthy and middle class residents who wanted to summer or live outside of the city where they worked. Later on, JP has become very well known for America's First Craft Beer, Sam Adams, which is still brewed here today. On this exciting tour, we will take you around the popular Centre Street center of JP, which is chock full of delicious eats.
