Nice monument

If you are in the area, drive by. It is quite interesting and it is free. We walked around but some buses just drove by.

Nice statue, impressive size, otherwise meh, i wouldn't go too far out of the way to go see it. Don't go expecting to spend alot of time there, the Washington monument, or Lincoln memorial it ain't.

I recommend walking up close to the monument and really looking at all of the detail. There is so much that this monument commemorates. At the very least, the monument is a beautiful piece of art, that I feel anyone would appreciate.

Free, majestic and just a nice little out of the way place. Probably best to come here in the daytime as there seems to be other things not family friendly going on here late at night. I came here late looking for a geocache, I will come back another day.

The monument is larger than expected. Many historic inscriptions and the statues are well done. Good view of the Plymouth Bay.

We enjoyed the view from up there and walking around the entire base of the memorial statue to read all the inscriptions. Looks like in the summer it would be a great place for a picnic - if you can do that there.

I had never heard of this monument before. It is a beautiful monument and should be given more attention. I recommend a visit if you are in the area.

It took a little while to find but, when we got there, my sister and I couldn't believe that this is so obscure. It's HUGE and, in my opinion, should be lauded, taught, made a bigger part of our national conscience. Very interesting. I'll be back in the fall and I intend to take a guided tour since it was...

A little out of the way and up the hill is the Forefathers monument. Not a huge park, but very interesting nonetheless . This monument is solid granite and reminds of the values this country was built on. Worth a look

A trip worth making.... Off the beaten path, but enormous! Quiet. Gives you a sense of the surrounding neighborhood. Doesn't take long...very pretty and interesting.
