Plymouth is in Massachusetts on the South Shore. Plymouth includes the villages of Cedarville, Manomet, North Plymouth and West Plymouth. It has the largest area of any town in Massachusetts -- about 100 mi² (259 km²). As the landing place of the Mayflower and its Pilgrims arriving from England in 1620, it was among the earliest settlements of Europeans in North America. Half the original colonists died during the first winter. A picturesque harbor is the backdrop for a trip into colonial history. In winter you'll want to dress warmly.
Plymouth Harbor and Plymouth Rock, Water Street. Always available.. The famous rock commemorates the landing of the Pilgrims. Typically the rock inspires an "Is that all there is?" reaction, but hey, you gotta see it.
