What You Can Expect
See a recreation of an original Pilgrim village with the humble timber-framed houses typical of early New England, and wander through Town Square: Plymouth’s central hub. Head past Cole’s Hill — the first cemetery to be used by the Pilgrims — and follow the town’s scenic footpaths through Brewster Gardens. Admire the pretty brook that runs through the parkland, and stop for nighttime photos by the Pilgrim Maiden, a bronze fountain that honors the city’s immigrants who arrived between the 18th and 21st centuries.
Continue to the water’s edge to see Mayflower II, an elegant replica of the 17th-century Mayflower. The English-built ship famously transported the Pilgrims to the New World in the historic voyage of 1620. After posing for photos by the eye-catching replica, continue along Plymouth Harbor, admiring its illuminated sights, and then past the Pilgrim’s Sarcophagus and Statue of Massasoit.
The statue overlooks Plymouth Rock, a feature that marks the spot where the Pilgrims first stepped onto American soil. Hear how the rock became a national monument, and then work your way back to the start point where your 1.5-hour tour finishes.
