Adams National Historical Park

To celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary, we drove to the south shore of Massachusetts and took a trolley ride around Quincy to tour the Adams National Historical Park. That is a totally normal way to celebrate, right? Well, we thought so and Logan just loved the Trolley, so that made it all worth it! There are very few NPS sites left in Massachusetts that we haven't visited yet, and exploring this park helped us cross another one off our list.

There is really only one way to visit this park. Start at the visitor center for their introductory video, then hop on a trolley which stops at 3 historical homes. At each home, a Park Ranger guides you through the property and shares stories of the Adams family, their historical significance and how the home was kept during each generation that resided in the homes. There are no self guided tours available so make sure you arrive early (especially one the weekends) to purchase your tickets. The tour takes about 2 hours start to finish and even on a rainy day, like the day we visited, it is a nice way to spend an afternoon. Side note: there is no photography of any type allowed within the buildings.
