For only $10 you can get a ticket to the Historic District Walking Tour and you will definitely see me there! I am one of those rare millennial's that loves stuff like this, I use to be a tour guide when I lived in Chicago, I would talk for hours about the architecture and history of Chicago, and so for someone like me who is still new to Quincy and wants to learn more this is right up my alley!
