Amazing views from the top of this 252 foot tower that was built between 1907 and 1910 to commemorate the first landing of the Mayflower Pilgrims on Nov. 21, 1620. It's a fairly easy climb of 116 steps and 60 ramps that are wide enough...More

I'm not sure where the ferry comes in but my husband & I both feel it must be. P town is not large at all. Of course this is assuming you are in shape to walk several blocks with no effort.

It will probably take you about 20 minutes to walk from the Monument to the ferry for Long Point. Have fun!

Parking included one entry, not that expensive but well worth it. I think Peking was $15. Admission $12
