Discover Quincy is pleased to announce the return of its “Discover Quincy Days” program being offered this season. On three Saturdays - July 13, August 10, and October 5 - visitors and residents can experience Quincy and all of its rich history for one admission price.

Participants may purchase a Discover Quincy wristband for $5 that gives them admission for the day to the Adams National Historical Park, Josiah Quincy House, Dorothy Quincy Homestead, Quincy Historical Society, and United First Parish Church.

With the purchase of a wristband, visitors can visit one, two, three, four, or all five historic sites on Discover Quincy Days. They may use their own transportation and travel from location to location or they may take advantage of a shuttle that will depart from the Quincy Historical Society and run on a continuous loop between the sites from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

In addition, participants can explore Quincy’s history by walking in the footsteps of John Adams. A Walking Tour map provides a self-guided tour for visitors from the Adams Academy/Quincy Historical Society down Hancock Street. Along the way, a variety of statues and markers, such as the John Adams and Abigail Adams/John Quincy Adams statues and Granite Ball are highlighted. At the Hancock Cemetery, located across the street from the United First Parish Church, a historical interpreter will be on hand to guide visitors through the town’s earliest cemetery.

Discover Quincy wristbands will be sold at all of the participating historic sites on Discover Quincy Days.
