  • Quincy's Tourist DestinationsThe Adams National Historic Park is the first place to take your out of town visitors.

The United First Parish Church offers a look at the crypt where the Adams family is buried.

  • Quincy's NeighborhoodsThere are eleven distinct neighborhoods in Quincy, and like everything about the area, there is a long history in the development of each. Some were created based on the landscape - for example, some grew around the water when water was a critical part of commerce. Others are so geographically isolated that they didn't attract residents until much later. Adams Shore is very close to Quincy's beaches, and Quincy Point was originally settled due to its proximity to the shipyard. Germantown was named for the many German workers that came to work in the shipbuilding industry, and today it is the most affordable place to live in the city. One of the most popular neighborhoods is Merrymount, where the Adams family first purchased land and founded what would later become the city of Quincy. This area features lovely homes from the first half of the 20th century, most of which enjoy stunning views of the water and marshlands.
