This monument is an amazingly beautiful work of art, tucked away from the Main and Court St. areas, but very close. You have to see it to understand the beauty of it.

It is a beautiful monument. I’m glad we went off the beaten path to check it out. A beautiful memorial with interesting art and symbolism.

This is a huge impressive monument worth visiting. There is no entrance fee and there is parking. Walk around it and read the inscriptions.

It was a rainy day so we only got to drive around this massive Monument. It is just a short ways from Plymouth Rock.

We were taken by our guide to view this monument and it was a real surprise to see in this quiet environment. Really worth a visit if you are in the Plymouth area.

Interesting monument busted in the tour, I should have done more background research but it does include the names of the original pilgrims

Just come to Plymouth, visit the visitors center. You can see the monument just by walking to it. Easy distance. Or, there are trolley tours that will take you to the highlights of Plymouth. Very inexpensive!
