Quincy Illinois......the Gem City..........it is quite the gem!

This blog is a place where you can find everything you need to know about Quincy, IL and the surrounding areas. What is going on and what there is to do! See photos of events and we will be featuring a different Quincy Business every week! Check out what they have in store for you!

As a newer resident of Quincy, IL I found that even the city website doesn't really help you find out what is going on in this quaint Midwestern town. Surrounded by fields of corn and soybeans you may say well it's a small city with a big city attitude. That is just an outsiders look. When I first moved here, I immediately felt like people here were just not friendly. Well I can honestly say most people here are very friendly. Just they are from a German heritage. This means they are naturally more likely to just say hello and move on. They are not people who will just jump out and greet you shake your hand and become your best friend. However, once you make a friend, they are a friend.

Like every other town there are cliques and there are 'good ole boys'. But there are a lot of great things about this town. The joke here in quincy is every block has a church or a bar. This is very very true! There are lots of both. This small town has three tattoo shops and a small mall as well as many strip malls. A couple of car dealers, a Kmart and a Walmart also top off the shopping here in town.

Like antiques or thrift stores there are plenty of those too! I will definitely share my faves with you and the bargains I find there! So make sure you stay up on my posts and learn what Quincy has to offer. If you are considering visiting or if you live here I am sure there is something to learn about!

SO WELCOME! And come see what Quincy, IL has to offer.
