Went to Plymouth plantation on thanksgiving. There were several venues that served thanksgiving dinner, unfortunately by the time we thought of it they were all sold out. We ended up touring the outdoor exhibits and still had a good time. You could find food for sale and we ended up buying a turkey drumstick and walking around the plantation enjoying... More

Old England right in our State. Everything is authentic with people trained in the old ways of England, portraying the life styles of the early arrivals to our country. They live, work and play in the simulated village with thatched homes, animals in the pens and a great place to spend a few hours with children too. Watch them cooking... More

This is a great place for all ages. They take you back in time to the village of the original settlers of this country. It is set on a hillside that overlooks the ocean.

By far the most enjoyable thing my travel partner and I did on our trip up the Cape. Even on a dreary day, we trudged around the grounds learning interesting facts from actors in period clothing playing the roles and answering questions as they would in the 1600s. We were encouraged to explore and ask about what we saw. We... More

Plimoth Plantation is not your typical tourist trap. The village is set up as if you are actually in the time period and the "residents" stay in character. It is like you are stepping back in time. Take your time, explore the villages, talk with the craft people and appreciate the history. There is some walking but it is not... More

This is a must if in the area! Very impressive how they truly make you feel like you have taken a step back in time. Fascinating historical information. It was enjoyed by the big kids as much as the little kids.

An authentic step back through the ages where you are able to envision how the pilgrims lived in their very primitive first homes after arriving in America. Actors "know nothing" past 1620 and are historically informed. Don't miss this - it is wonderful!

My husband and I were a bit curious as to whether this would be a "cheesy" tourist type trap, but it really isn't. Though the buildings aren't on the actual site (since the modern day town grew up out of that original site); it isn't far from where it all began. The buildings show excellent attention to detail. The historical... More

I enjoyed exploring this wonderful place during a vacation in July. I was amazed at how many buildings they have to visit. Inside you will find people dressed up and playing parts from that time period. They tell interesting stories and interact well with the visitors. There is a great view from the fort building at the top of the... More
