Quincy primed for 'John Adams' boost

QUINCY, Mass., March 23 (UPI) -- The city of Quincy, Mass., has made preparations for an expected boost in tourism prompted by last week's debut of the HBO series "John Adams."

Quincy Mayor Tom Koch said the mini-series would likely trigger greater tourist interest in one of the city's famed sons and officials are making every preparation to ensure the city is prepared to capitalize on the increased business, The Boston Globe reported Sunday.

Toward that end, Koch said his city is sprucing itself up to impress tourists.

"It's a Quincy story," Koch said. "The city should look good. It should be clean."

Among the tourist locales "Adams" fans are expected to flock to in coming months is the Adams National Historic Park, which will offer increased tourism services.

History-themed tours of the city are also being planned and less appreciated historic sites will be featured in such offerings, the Globe said.

"Adams," a seven-part film series about the life of the second U.S. president, was based on a biography by historian David McCullough.
