Overview of Quincy
As the home of two presidents, Quincy certainly has a lot of history, but this city just to the south of Boston is also an important part of Massachusetts in the 21st century.
If you’re looking for apartments for rent in Quincy, you’ll find that the city has a lot to offer its residents. It is on the Boston subway system - the "T" as it is known locally - but it also has a beach and a national park.
Living in Quincy, MA
Quincy's proximity to Boston makes it a great place to live for both professionals and students, as a 20- to 30-minute train ride will take people right downtown. In addition, those who rent apartments in Quincy will find that it is not too far from many summer destinations like Cape Cod.
An appeal to many Massachusetts residents is the tremendous amount of American history in the state and Quincy is no different. Quincy was first seen by settlers when Myles Standish - along with his native guide Squanto - visited the area in 1621.
In 1792, Quincy was officially incorporated when it broke off from Braintree, which still neighbors the city today. The municipality was named after Colonel John Quincy, the great grandfather of John Quincy Adams, America's sixth president. The area was also home to Quincy Adams' father, John Adams, the second president, so it is no wonder why Quincy is known as the "City of Presidents."
Those who wish to walk to restaurants and shops may wish to look at the Quincy Center area, while those looking for a quieter area may want to investigate Squantum, in the northern part of the city, and Wollaston, in the east.
