Quincy, MA by Jay
Quincy (pronounced KWIN-zee), Massachusetts, referred to as the “City of Presidents”, is the birthplace of early US presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams. Downtown Quincy is the site of Adams National Historical Park (http://www.nps.gov/adam/), an urban federal park, so there’s a park service information center downtown with tourist information. Easily accessible to downtown Boston (and Cambridge and Somerville) on the Red Line of the MBTA (http://www.mbta.com/), it still has a very distinctive flavour and feel. Into the 19th and early 20th centuries, it was an important shipbuilding center.
