Quincy ranks number 3 on the Energy Portal list for the cheapest places to live in Illinois. Right behind Decatur and Rockford, Quincy is good for families on a tight budget. They say,

The city offers a low cost of housing, utilities, and transportation, making it an ideal choice for individuals or families looking to stretch their budget. Quincy’s rich history, picturesque riverfront, and strong sense of community contribute to its appeal.

Interestingly enough, they also say that all three towns have worked hard to get crime down to make residents feel more secure in their communities. Now, no place in the entire world is safe from crime, but in watching the news and following the Quincy Police Department, I can honestly say I feel extremely safe living in Quincy.

Quincy also has several job opportunities, growth in new stores coming to town, and more affordable housing for those looking for it according to Energy Portal. So, for those of us who live here, we know it may not be perfect, but Quincy is a great place to live and raise a family.
