We drove down from Boston in the evening and arrived in Plymouth just before sunset. There is a lot of construction on the road in front of the monument so finding parking was difficult. We found some street parking, which was free, and walked to...More

The landing of the Pilgrims in Plymouth is arguably the most historically important events in American history and this symbol of that event is majestic. If you come to Massachusetts visit it and take in the heady significance.

It's just a third of the original size with a date stamped in it. There was a park ranger who told a brief story about it. Don't make an extra trip to see it.

Been here a few times...just a rock in a pavilion stamped with 1620. This visit there was a DCR ranger there giving a talk which was more interesting about the settlement etc. Try and get to hear a ranger makes it worth it.

Plymouth is a great place for history. I guess we thought the rock was going to be bigger???? Nonetheless, the park lady gave a great story about the pilgrims, The Mayflower and the rock. Many sights down near the harbor.

I visit family in Plymouth often and I have seen the rock a few times, it's good for a quick stop. Don't be too excited though, it is just a rock. Neat to stop by though on your own to appreciate the history. During high...More

It's best to visit while the Park Ranger is there to provide some of the background and answer questions about the Pilgrims' landing, the rock, etc. I'm not sure of the Ranger's hours, but you might find out from the... More
