Will there be any restaurants open in the area for Christmas?
The Quincy Area Convention and Visitors Bureau produces a list each year of area restaurants that are open on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
However, other restaurants also might have hours of operation. We suggest you call to check their hours of operations, and many restaurants also provide a list of holiday hours near their entrances.
