Micropolis on the River
It may not be a huge city but Quincy, Illinois, is the center of a major micropolitan area on the eastern bank of the Mississippi River. There are only around 40,000 residents in town but there's enough art, culture, cuisine, and history for ten times that number. Apartment renters who want to enjoy all the entertainment and variety of a big city without the crowds should consider moving to Quincy.

Finding the Perfect Apartment in Quincy
Depending on the part of town you move to, there can be a considerable range of prices when it comes to apartment rentals. Since it's not a huge city, rentals can be few and far between as well, so renters will want to be sure to keep their eyes open for good deals. Use the apartment finder and you’re sure to snatch up the best deal in town on the place you want. Take a look at the chart above to get an idea of what places are currently going for.
The people of Quincy aren't shy about their love of film. When the weather's nice, look for screenings of recently released films along the banks of the Mississippi at Movies on the Muddy. Screenings occur periodically so be sure to pick up a copy of the town's newspaper to see what shows are coming up next. If you're a filmmaker (or an actor, cameraman or key grip), you'll also want to check out the Big Dam Film Festival. This festival is open to entrants from in town, around the state, across the nation and even around the world (though the Big Dam judges love seeing locally produced films). Even if you don't get your film edited in time, you'll still want to make it out for a fun weekend of watching independently produced short and long films in all different genres.
Playing With Food
If you received the proper training as a child, you know that it's wrong to play with your food. It seems that the people of Quincy didn't get the memo on this one because not only do they play with their food, they also play with their restaurants. Each month, the team at Chophouse Hijack takes over a local Quincy restaurant, transforming it into a happening house party, a refined art show, a board gamer's tournament of champions, or anything else they feel like. Renters who love eating great food but hate being bored will want to be sure to catch the show at this month's hijacked restaurant.
In the summer renters will also want to head out to the park to be a part of the local barbecue competition, Smoke on the River. Here, barbecue masters from all over come to show off the recipe they've perfected after years of playing with the correct ratios of sugar to tomato to meat to secret ingredients. If you prefer catching dinner to cooking it, Quincy also puts on a catfish fishing tournament. Anglers can head down to the banks of the Mississippi to catch a giant bottom feeder on the line. These fish can grown to be six feet long or more, so make sure to bring your appetite!
Back in Time in Quincy
It may not seem like it, but back in the heyday of riverboats, Quincy was one of the biggest and most important cities in Illinois. Though it's position on the river allowed it to be settled much earlier, it didn't get its name until 1825, when John Quincy Adams became president. Around this time, an influx of new settlers from Germany arrived, bringing with them the architectural style that would set this city apart from others in the area. Today, renters from Quincy can explore the architectural history of their town at the Gardner Museum or by walking through the historic German district. History buffs should be sure to join up with the Historical Society of Quincy and Adams County to meet some like minded neighbors and learn more about their new city.
