Quincy, Massachusetts, is a historic city just ten miles south of Boston. Once a part of neighboring Braintree, the city split off in 1792 and was named after Colonel John Quincy, the grandfather of Abigail Adams. With its location on Quincy Bay, the city once had a large shipbuilding industry as well as a thriving granite industry.

From Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), there are two ways to ride public transportation to Quincy. Both of them involve Boston's subway system, known regionally as the "T." You can take it all the way to Quincy by riding the red line to any of the stops between North Quincy and Quincy Adams. Where you get off depends on which of the Quincy hotels you chose. A somewhat faster option would be to ride the T to South Station and switch to the Greenbush line on the commuter rail. From South Station, it's a little under 15 minutes to Quincy Center. Book one of the car rentals in Quincy in advance so you have transportation waiting, or just rent a car at the airport if you don't mind driving in the city. Visit Adams National Historical Park to visit the birthplaces of U.S. presidents John Adams and his son John Quincy Adams.
