#1 of 13 in Historic Sites in Plymouth
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.

  • It's a beautiful place with nice walk. Nice location to click pictures. The rock is obviously the highlight to give a feel for the history. Keep your expectations of the size of the rock mellow so you can enjoy the amazing surrounding.
  • I was expecting a bigger stone was a nice place to see but just did not fit the bill hope they tested the rock for age before they spend so much money on building the columns and the roadway cobble stones on the sidewalk. Will do some research on this and come up with my own conclusions. Nice place well kept area.
