  • The rock is smaller then you think. Be warned! But it’s still cool to see. A park ranger is there to answer questions and give some narration. A mock version of the mayflower is also in the harbor although it was not there in our last visit because it was being refurbished. Nice trail along the river that many people walk and run on especially in the morning.
  • So historic! Beautiful and clean. Folk from all over. Living in Boston its crazy that I hadn't been in around 40 years!! I totally recommend taking a day trip down to Plymouth. The only minus was parking coulda been a nightmare. There is a large lot but even on a day that wasn't really crowded, the lot was full. We got lucky and found a meter spot. Great for families or a date!
