Plymouth Rock commemorates the location where Europeans first set foot onto what's now U.S. soil. Although historians disagree on whether the first pilgrims actually docked their ships on a large protruding rock in 1620, today there stands a simple boulder to commemorate the birthplace of the United States. You can view the boulder and the beautiful coastal views around the harbor, where a replica of the Mayflower II, the ship on which the pilgrims traveled across the Atlantic, resides.
