      Living in Quincy is kind of like living in a fantasy village all year round. The place is touristy, but in a nice sort of way. The views are spectacular, and the famous Mississippi River is right there for all to see. There are plenty of things to do if you need to get out of the house for a while, though I must admit part of the allure of the town are the beautiful homes that are priced decently enough that I can live in a cozy 4 bedroom with my family.

      The best areas in Quincy to see have got to be all the museums spread through the city. We have a museum for what seems like everything; agriculture, the All Wars Museum, art, and even a museum just for the founder of the city. We even have our very own castle that's pretty cool to take a look at if you happen to have the time. Living here certainly isn't boring!
