Take a few hours to visit them all. Very nice place to feel patriotic and proud to be an American. Recognizing some of the struggles our early settlers endured.

Our true history has been hidden. Thankful there are still things to see for the ones looking for truth. Monument represents our true history and what was truly sacrificed to be here.

I live in Plymouth and bring people here all the time and get the same "holy cow" reaction. It's cool because it just sits in a neighborhood completely out of place...which makes it cooler.

While it has immense historical significance, it's a statue on a hill. There's nothing else really around it. Go seek it out just to see it but know its off the main area.

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!
