Just minutes south of Boston awaits one of New England's most captivating destinations, the City of Quincy ("quin-zee"). Called the "City of Presidents" and "Birthplace of the American Dream", Quincy is the birthplace of the second and sixth U.S. Presidents, John Adams and his son, John Quincy Adams. Rich in historic treasures, Quincy's impressive past remains vibrant today as the city lays claim to an exciting future.
Fascinating historic sites abound, while miles of coastline capture the imagination with their enchanting beauty. Culture and commerce blend to create an impressive array of things to see and do year round. The New Quincy Center (downtown) which is among the largest urban revitalization efforts anywhere in Massachusetts, encompasses a total of more than 50 acres of mixed-use development in the heart of one of America's most historic cities.
Be sure to visit the Adams National Historical Park, commemorating the distinguished men and women of the Adams family who dedicated their lives to the founding and strengthening of the United States. The thirteen acre park includes the home of this remarkable family; the farmhouse where both presidents were born, recognized as the oldest presidential birthplace in the country; the Visitor Center; and the United First Parish Church and Adams Crypt. For more information, please visit the Adams National Historical Park web site by clicking here.
Other prominent attractions that you won't want to miss include: the Hancock Cemetery, the colonial community's first and main burial ground; the Thomas Crane Public Library, a national architectural landmark; the Adams Academy/Quincy Historical Society; the birthplace of John Hancock; the Dorothy Quincy Homestead; and the Josiah Quincy House, site of many Sons of Liberty meetings.
Stroll the boardwalk at picturesque Marina Bay, the largest marina in the Northeast, and enjoy the incredible view of the Boston skyline. Known for its spectacular sunsets, Marina Bay has several restaurants offering outdoor and indoor waterfront dining as well as a variety of retail shops.
Masks are still mandatory for all individuals on public and private transportation systems (including rideshares, livery, taxi, ferries, MBTA, Commuter Rail and transportation stations), in healthcare facilities and in other settings hosting vulnerable populations, such as congregate care settings.
