After my two days in Plymouth I had to get back to Logan to fly out. I stopped by Plymouth Rock and saw it!! It was cool and had 1620 engraved into it. I took several pictures... the rock is actually in the water!!!! It has a Greek like column structure surrounding it.... it actually was pretty cool thinking the... More

Went on Thanksgiving to teach the real story of the holiday. The rock is much smaller than I would have imagined. Plenty of parking around the location and the rock is accessible with no cost to see it. A definite stop if you are in the area to see a part of history

It is a must see but when we were there a protest was going on - native Americans poorly - I guess this is an annual thing

We wanted to stand in solidarity with the Native Americans on this day when we usually do a family day of thanks. We wanted to stand with our Native American teachers and prophets and Earth Lovers. Their ceremony begins at noon on Cole's Hill which overlooks Plymouth Rock Monument. It was the perfect place to be this year, standing with... More

Because of it's historical significance, I'm happy I saw it, but wow, how underwhelming!. There was a park ranger who stood next to the rock and provided its history. He said that long ago, visitors were allowed to chip a piece off the rock as a souvenir. It soon became apparent that if they continued to allow this, the rock... More

As a school kid we learned of the significance of Plymouth and the Rock to American history. It had to be huge in our minds. That which is left of the original rock is small but is well presented and maintained in public view in an open white columned structure. Not the most impressive thing you will see .. but... More

It is a rock. It isn't the first place the Pilgrims landed (That would be Provincetown on the Cape). They may not have even landed there. But it is a part of history, and worth the trip. I took pity on the poor park service ranger who wanted anyone to ask him a question, and I did, and he was... More

Okay: First, the Plymouth Rock is a symbol. If you live in the suburbs there is a good chance you have similar sized rocks in your backyard. That said, your rock is not overlooking Plymouth Harbor or yards from the Mayflower. Second, Plymouth is a really cool place to visit. Half an hour to Cape Cod it's worth stopping in... More

I may have been expecting more here but saying that it was interesting to see, and they have built a lovely building to house the thing. On the top of the grass mound behind the road is a lovely bronze statue of a red Indian that met the founding fathers, good photo op...
