Now surrounded by protective pillars, this unimposing rock was allegedly the first piece of land touched by the Pilgrims in the New World.

Well, this is supposedly the famous rock where rowboats bringing Mayflower passengers ashore landed. The best thing about it was the guide who engages the audience with a quite informative talk. The rock itself is much smaller than visitors, including me, expect. It has been...More

Very disappointed with the size of the rock, the monument over it is huge. Parking isn't the treatise either.

Well, having time to see it last evening I was a bit disappointed. It is little more than a smallish rock in the sand. It is surrounded by an elaborate structure but little else. Having seen it, I do not think that I would go...More

Just a quick visit needed, but Plymouth Rock is where it all started. Well kept location on the Plymouth waterfront.

Yep! It's a rock! Not a remarkable rock, just a rock. There is a nice pavilion around it with restrooms nearby. Beautiful place to walk the shore, and grab dinner. Truly lovely area!

The rock is small and probably wasn't really associated with the pilgrims, but it is used to illustrate the history which occurred in this area. It's a nice walk along the harbor so you can check out the rock on the way.

Stopped on our way to Cape Cod. Nice to visit and see the monument. Doesnt take long at all. Several gift shops close by. Didnt get to see the Mayflower, it was sent away for repairs

It's best to visit while the Park Ranger is there to provide some of the background and answer questions about the Pilgrims' landing, the rock, etc. I'm not sure of the Ranger's hours, but you might find out from the... More
