Area Description

Quincy is a great place to retire because of it's beauty and slow pace. With only 2 stop lights, traffic is not an issue. Being a small town of 5500 their is a strong sense of community. What's that saying "Everyone knows your name"??? We have a great hospital, library, museum, shops and restaurants, numerous churches, a community college, county courthouse,airport, miles and miles of forests, streams, mountain lakes and numerous golf courses nearby.Best of all is the slow pace, Quincy is a town where people still do some "porch sitting. I moved here from the Bay Area 36 years ago and you couldn't pay me enough to move. Love my town!
