The Monument to the Forefathers is actually the highlight of Plymouth being that the Mayflower is not there. This is a massive four sided Statue and is truly breathtaking. There is lots of parking and it is dog friendly and free. See this first before...More

It's a shame the foreign tourists did not do their research to learn about this beautiful monument. Granted there is no brochure, but just read the title to understand what it is all about. Took pictures at every angle to get all the details. Amazing!

The memorial is breathtaking. You have to find it because it is a few streets away from the other attractions. It is well worth your time.

Not much to do but check out the statue, although it's a great spot to walk the dog! Good walking path and really close to town and the waterfront.

It was an amazing experience to see this monument in person. So grandiose! My wife and I were both very impressed. Very historic. If you are in Plymouth, you must go see this.

Significant monument off the beaten path some what. Tallest granite monument in the U.S. According to informational plaque. Good to visit while in Plymouth for some of the history.

Whenever we have friends in town we make sure we take them here. Seems like few people know about this. We have never encountered crowds side it's a couple minute drive from the downtown area. Very impressive for all.

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!
