400 years ago, Pilgrims landed here to begin a new life, and millions have been here since.

I took my whole family there to see the spot where the Mayflower landed in 1620, I was a little disappointed to see how people disrespected this site by throwing trash inside. I wish there was a better display for visitors to learn about this site. I know that the rock was moved back about 150 feet from it's original... More

We walked to see the rock from our vacation rental. Took a couple pictures and left. It's smaller than you'd expect, but it's free and a part of history!

If in Plymouth, the rock is worth a visit and a photo. However, this is not the real rock where the pilgrims actually landed. You can't miss it in the park area because there is a momentous structure built around it and is located below ground level and is viewed from above. This rock is just a few minutes walk... More

Right next to the Mayflower II it's a quick stop. A neat place to take pics. The scenery is beautiful and we parked easily. Meters take credit cards. $1/hr Sundays too until 7.

Really not sure what we thought we would see, but its just a rock folks. I will say it was nice being in the very spot the pilgrims landed, though.

You do know it's A rock, not THE rock, right? It's a lovely monument (aside from the plastic bags of playsand meant to keep the tide out) and more of a chance to walk along gorgeous Plymouth harbor. Take it for what it is.

The town is cool the rock it cool. It takes about 10 minutes to see and read about it. They did not land there anyway, it was up the coast more. Worth the stop for the history of our country

Easy to find in Plymouth, just look for the rather large portico covering the rock. Look down, you will see the rock with 1620 carved into it. It is cool to think this is the approximate location of where William Bradford and the other Mayflower pilgrims first stepped onto what would be known someday as America. The day I was... More

I did not care much for it, to crowed, but I was there just before Thanksgiving, also guids telling people that this is the original rock, it is not, it was placed there in like the 1930's, also they say it was orientated to cardinal directions, it is not even close as I checked with my compass when I hear...
