See Quincy


Quincy, Illinois is the nucleus of a tri-county area populated by family farms and wineries. The beautiful city shoulders the Mississippi River to its west, and extends north, south, and east to rural land and delightful village destinations.  Architecture is abundant throughout the Gem City, with several driving and walking tours, along with custom Private Home Tours into 15 private homes in the city.  North of Quincy is Historic Nauvoo, as the flats come alive year-round with restored shops, horse drawn wagon rides and bountiful scenery where the wide sections of the river meet the Great River Road.  South of Quincy, the historic settlement of New Philadelphia resides, along with the golden triangle, for a hunter’s paradise, throughout the land where Lincoln walked.   The Mississippi Valley Wine trail and Tri-County Catfish Trail await exploration year-round throughout all three counties.  See Quincy hosts Flavor Tours all summer long along with new kayak rentals coming soon to Quincy Bay.
