Quincy Hotels

As the birthplace of 2 former presidents, John Adams and John Quincy Adams, Quincy is a town that is steeped in history, and its close proximity to Boston means there's a wide range of attractions on offer. With pleasant leafy streets, it's a popular suburb for families and commuters, and provides a quiet escape from the main metropolitan area which buzzes 24/7. Its riverfront location also means there's plenty of natural beauty, with the fall seasons bringing a burst of burnt orange to the area that gives it the perfect New England atmosphere.

Things to see

The US Naval Shipbuilding Museum can be spotted by the heavy cruiser USS Salem which is permanently docked, and this provides plenty of space for exhibitions and events, telling the story of shipbuilding in the USA, as well as offering a history of Salem and the notoriety it gained through the witch trials. There's further local history to be found at the Quincy Historical Society Museum which is set in an old brick school house founded by John Quincy Adams. This quaint building still has many of the original features of the school, and you'll see large arched windows, and cozy rooms with exposed bricks. There are displays about the history of the town, with a strong emphasis on John Quincy Adams and his time there. At the serene Hancock Cemetery you can visit the graves of John Adams, John Quincy Adams, and their respective wives and first ladies, with rather modest gravestones marking their resting places. This small site was used by the puritans for many years, with hundreds of internments in unmarked or poorly marked graves, giving the area an air of mystery.

Outside of the center you'll find leafy and pleasant suburbs, with classic New England style clapboard houses, and tree-lined streets. There are also areas of heavy industry along the waterfront, with shipbuilding and other traditional skills still alive in the area, although further along you can enjoy quieter stretches of waterfront with parks and small areas of sandy beaches.
