The monument is huge and right in a residential neighborhood. You can easily walk to it from Plymouth Rock, although there is a bit of the hill that some people might struggle with. The only thing at the location is the monument, so you can...More

Fun to read the names of the families that came over on the Mayflower. It's located on top of a hill not far from the Plymouth Rock.

Plymouth is the most quaint, shop-filled, bed and breakfast type New England town you can find. The history is amazing. Sad, however, that most people in Massachusetts I met had very little respect for America, our history, basic manners, or religion thanks to the influence...More

It is a really cool, very large monument at the top of a hill in Plymouth. It doesn't take an enormous amount of time to see but it is definitely something to check out while in Plymouth

A beautiful monument we saw at dusk and came back to take pictures at dawn. A great story...unfortunately it's like the monuments of Israel where God brought the people to the promised land and the people forgot who brought them to the dance.

We were looking for something quick, not too far out of the way, open 24/7 and free to do in the area. We were pleasantly surprised to find National Monument to the Forefathers. It's nothing fancy, but if you're a history buff and are willing...More

There is so much history in this huge monument you can not even imagine. Walk around and google the history. We saw a documentary on it and had to see it in person. Gorgeous views also. Free and plenty of parking. Good picnic spot.

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!
