Small Town Charm, Big City Culture
Quincy and the surrounding Tri-state area offer residents and visitors a taste of entertainment and culture not often found in communities our size. Maybe it’s because we’ve been at it a long time. Quincy is home to America’s first Arts Council, the Quincy Society of Fine Arts, established in 1947.
Or it could be our 10 museums, 5 area wineries, 500-seat state-of-the-art community theatre, or one of our many musical performance groups.
A downtown in the midst of revitalization also helps when it comes to unique places to shop, eat and relax. Speaking of relaxing, we have 1,000 acres of parks in Quincy alone ready for you to spread a blanket. And if you enjoy nature, we can’t forget the mighty Mississippi and all the recreational opportunities it offers for the boating, skiing and fishing enthusiast.
We could go on, but we’ll let our friends at the Quincy Area Convention and Visitors Bureau take it from here. You’ll find an area calendar of events, lists of restaurants and hotels, shops and more at http://www.seequincy.com.
