It's a Quick Look at the Rock, Then Go Eat!

Much smaller rock than I expected! Glad I saw the memorial rock area and Mayflower II replica of the original. Takes five minutes. Then go eat at Cafe Nicole! On sane street.

A pebble with no meaning. Do people buy this b.s.? Seriously, this is not the actual rock anyone landed on, and even if they did so what? It's a rock.

It's an important part of our history. I'm glad it survived all of these years. A wonderful sight to see.

It symbolizes a lot in American history. It's not big. It's not shiny. It doesn't do anything, but it does stand for something. The stories about the rock are probably more interesting than the rock itself. The town has tons more to do and is definitely a great place to visit.

I grew up in the area and I had several school field trips to see this. Until I was about 10 years old, I honestly though it was just a local attraction because, really, it is just a rock. In a pit. I saw it again on a recent trip home with someone who had never seen it and wanted... More

It is a rock. What ore can I say? It is a historic site, but once you see it most are no impressed. I say you NEED to see it but don't get to excited about it.

We all learn about Plymouth Rock in school, and it was nice to go to the site & reflect upon the meaning. However, when first laying eyes upon this rock, my first thought was "gee it's a rock surrounded by a nice pergola with a man stationed by it to rake the sand."

that I was actually in the same location as the first settlers. Said that people have actually come through and taken some of that rock...now people can just look at it and not touch it....still neat though. Area is beautifully kept...lots to do...be sure to climb the hill and check out the many shops in town.

We did stop to see the "rock" We did come away saying that was interesting but take the time to walk across the street and go up the steps. the view is very nice was thinking how it must have been beautiful in the 1600s
