We visited the Adams homes recently and loved them. We enjoy history and to see where the former patriot and president lived gave us an even better appreciation of his career and family. You must park at the visitor center and then take a bus to the homes. We went to the birthplaces of John and John Quincy first. The park ranger was very good and I could tell he enjoyed his job. Nice presentation, but we felt a little rushed to catch the bus to the next house.
However, at the second larger/ retirement house, we spent a long time and the ranger there clearly knew his stuff. He gave a great presentation, answered all of our questions and really took time explaining all kinds of info including artwork, furniture and trivia. We also got to see the family library which is an "unofficial" presidential library. We had a great time and it is well worth a few hours.
