Experience the Pilgrim Story through original artifacts at the Pilgrim Hall Museum, which has recently undergone a multi-million dollar expansion. Tour historic homes and buildings, each uniquely connected to the Pilgrims. Also visit the Jenney Grist Mill, a faithful, working reconstruction of the 1636 mill, one of the Pilgrim's first industries. Enjoy the outdoors at Plymouth's beaches and recreational areas. There are also a number of famous landmarks to see, including the legendary Plymouth Rock and the National Monument to the Forefathers, the tallest free-standing solid granite monument in the world. Take in the sights and sounds of a lively working waterfront, where boats make their way into Cape Cod Bay for whale watching, deep-sea fishing, lobstering, pirate hunting or just an informative harbor cruise. Fine or casual dining, and a variety of shopping experiences await the visitor throughout the town. The streets, footpaths and trails of Plymouth continue to welcome newcomers as they did four centuries ago. Experience the sights, sounds and stories of America's Hometown by foot, bus or trolley.
