Home to the birthplaces and residences of John Adams and John Quincy Adams, the second and sixth presidents of the United States, Adams National Historical Park provides insight into the lives and times of these men and their families. Now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the area was hotbed of thought and planning during the turbulent years of the American Revolution. Join a guided tour for access to the houses and library; you'll also learn more about what you see in each room and the daily lives of the Adams family, whose descendants lived here until 1927. Get here early if you want to go on a guided tour; tour space is limited and they are very popular. Put Adams National Historical Park and other Quincy attractions into our Quincy trip maker app, and watch your holiday take shape.

If you want the full tour (both Adam's birthplaces and peace field) it's ~2 hrs and costs $15. The guides were super engaging and had wonderful stories that really kept us engaged even though we're not really into American history. Overall a great way to spend a few hours.
We took the tour, and it was well worth it. The park rangers were so professional, passionate and informative. I would highly recommend taking the tour and spending some time on the grounds.
