Rightly calling itself "America's Hometown," Plymouth holds a prominent place in the nation's history and culture as the site of the first Puritan colony. The town still contains the rock where colonists first stepped ashore in 1620, and it's home to several museums relating the early struggles and sacrifices of the first European settlers. For most of its history Plymouth remained a blue-collar town, its economy largely supported by fishing and shipbuilding. Today, the city of about 50,000 is a major draw for young commuters from Boston, as well as retirees from around the country. Increasingly popular with foreign travelers, Plymouth attracts tourism with its history and its many opportunities for deep-sea fishing and whale watching. Make the most of your holiday in Plymouth by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our United States vacation planner.
