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. Home to Adams National Historical Park, the United First Parish Church and Adams Crypt.
As the birthplace of John Adams, John Quincy Adams and John Hancock, Quincy has long been recognized for the pivotal role her native sons and daughters played in the fight for American independence. It was John Adams – the “Atlas of Independence” – who championed the dream of a new nation on American soil, a country built upon the principles of freedom, justice, and a passionate spirit of independence.
Quincy has something for everyone including outdoor recreation, offering 27 miles of coastline and beaches, acres of beautiful parks, rock climbing and hiking at the Blue Hill Reservation, and World Class Golf Courses.
