I really love downtown Plymouth. It's a pretty walk along the waterfront with lots and lots of shops, restaurants, ice cream and history in a short stretch of street.
There are pirate tours you can take but I don't know if it's on this little boat or what. This actually wasn't an area known for pirates that I know of.
What would a historic waterfront town be without tshirt and souvenir shops?
John Alden was one of the original pilgrims. I'm sure he'd be pleased to see a gift shop with his name on it. ;-)
Looking up Cole's Hill.
Quick walk around Brewster Gardens. Didn't have the time to walk up to the grist mill and back. The parking meters are back up and running for the season, and I only had enough change for an hour.
This reminds me so much of Victoria, BC.
Then a walk up to the top of the hill.
Massasoit, who helped the early settlers. Every Thanksgiving, members of the local Wampanoag tribes gather on Cole's Hill to observe a day of mourning, as the pilgrim's arrival and late fall feast was the beginning of the end for all of the tribes.
And the obligatory picture of the world's most anticlimactic national monument: Plymouth Rock.
