Welcome to the Plymouth Walking Tour
Take a day trip to Plymouth from Boston to visit the place where the Pilgrims landed! As one of the earliest English settlements in North America, Plymouth is an essential stop for any history lover. Get to know the Pilgrims, the Wampanoag who helped them, and learn what life was like in the New World. Plus, visit famous artifacts like Plymouth Rock and a replica of the Mayflower! Whether you want to dive deeper into American history, or simply want to stroll through a picturesque coastal town, a Plymouth walking tour is a must-do.
About the Tour
Our journey back in time begins at the Plymouth Visitor Center, where you can get acquainted with the town you’re about to explore. From there, you’ll stroll along the gorgeous waterfront and get a crash course in who the Pilgrims were, as well as how they managed to build a society so far away from anyone they knew.
The first major stop is a real treat: a replica of the Mayflower, on which the Pilgrims sailed from England to Massachusetts. Here, you’ll also get the scoop on the Mayflower passengers who weren’t Pilgrims–people who were called The Strangers.
After that, you’ll come to Plymouth’s most famous attraction: Plymouth Rock. According to legend, this is the spot where the Pilgrims disembarked to establish the colony of Plymouth. It’s got quite an exciting history behind it, all of which you’ll learn while admiring this timeless historical artifact.
Then, you’ll continue to the statue of Chief Massasoit and learn the true story of the alliance between the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag tribe and the dramatic events that prompted the unusual friendship.
