While visiting Plymouth I made sure to bring our young children to see Plymouth Rock, and talk about the history of the area. It is a nice monument and a very historic sight, I just remember it being a bit bigger when I was young.

There are lots of great reasons to come visit Plymouth...Plymouth Rock is not one of them. If you're already going to be in the area you should really stop by and snap a pic just to say you've been, but other than that it's not...More

At the end of the day it is a rock, but it is an important rock. Where it all begins. Amazing to see an artifact from 1620. I like the way the portico was built to house such an important relic but it would have...More

Was a in Plymouth in business and made a quick stop at Plymouth Rock. I didn’t know it was down inside that structure, so spent way too long looking for it. The structure it’s encased in is far more interesting than the rock itself!

If you are in Plymouth you should stop to see it. I was surprised at how small it is but I guess people have chipped it away over the years and it is now protected. A very nice scenic location and a short walk from...More

Visited many years ago. It was much nicer this time. A piece of history and beautiful town and view of water.

I frequent the Plymouth waterfront often as I only live 5-6 miles away. So I wouldn’t claim to actually go to see the Plymouth Rock itself but I walk past it while walking the waterfront often to see one of the wonderful free summer concerts...More

When I was a child you could actually get to the rock but inconsiderate people chipped pieces off and now it’s gated. It’s still very visible and one of those things that if you’re here you really should go see! We went in January so...More

The rock just sat there. It didn't do anything. Some one built it a cage like it was going to walk away. People threw garbage in the cage. Rocks don't eat garbage! People & visitors of Plymouth stop polluting God's country. You all disgust me!
