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

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.
