Groups + Sample Itineraries
Travel planners love Quincy! The “biggest, small city” in the Midwest.
Big on value, hospitality and personal, friendly service, Quincy offers a big bang for your buck. “Cityesque” in outstanding architecture, rich history, and culinary & cultural options.
Quincy’s proximity to several major metropolitan areas makes travel a snap. Motor coach operators find the drive to Quincy perfect for multi-day trips or even a solo day outing. The neighboring communities of historic Nauvoo and Pittsfield are ideal sister destinations to experience while here.

Spearheading an event new to Quincy? The Quincy Tourism Grant Program may be able to help. The Oakley Lindsay Center Board of Directors in cooperation with the Quincy Area Convention & Visitors Bureau and the City of Quincy has established a program to reinvest a portion of the Hotel/Motel tax funds to promote new area events. Grant funds are awarded on a quarterly basis in the amount of $500-$5,000, with priority being given to events based on their ability to generate overnight visitors to Quincy.

PRIVATE HOME TOURS OF QUINCY
The group rave, this popular program is unique to Quincy and unrivaled in the opinion of seasoned tour leaders and their groups. SeeQuincy arranges private interior tours of up to four homes in Quincy’s exclusive East End Historic District.
There are 17 curated homes from which to choose, and the homeowners give the tours themselves. The homes are arranged in neighborhood groupings for ease of walking. Many tour operators return with new guests or revisit and view a new selection of homes the second time around.
Quintessential Quincy is designed with groups in mind (call us if you would like a supply mailed to you); however, it easily translates for the individual leisure traveler as well. Quick & On-the-Go themed itinerary ideas are also below.
