It is not busy which is a huge plus. The actual rock is much smaller than you’d expect. It’s worth seeing because of convenience.

Awesome to see "the Rock" where the beginning of the Plymouth Colony began. It is protected by the monument and is easy to see.

Historically significant. Visually questionable. It's just a small rock with 1620 carved into it. It's protected by iron gate and columns. I've never seen the water come up high enough... maybe in a storm. Plan to spend... maybe a minute....looking at the rock....then walking on....More

Was great to see some Interp folks talking about the history when we arrived. Amusingly I was sad that I couldn’t touch it. Nicely preserved

The entire area is under construction right now but they know it's a problem and have a strong police presence to keep you safely out of harms way. Worth the visit and there's a ranger on duty all the time to give you details /...More

I think around 1920; there is a lot of history around the "rock" and where various pieces of it have landed over the years. The current memorial park is certainly not the first area marking the Pilgrims arrival, but for... More
