Go in realizing the "rock" is just a story. The pilgrims never landed on a rock, the rock did not land on us. However is a very nice monument in the downtown area. It's free and every 30 minutes there is a historian to share information and answer questions.

The monument is bigger then the actual rock. Would have missed this if someone hadn't pointed it out to us!

If you are in Plymouth then certainly go take a look but please don't make a special journey to see the rock as you will be disappointed. Lovely to mark the historical significance but simply a very small rock bearing a date. Plymouth itself is a very pretty spot & well worth a visit.

The rock is not large and it is in an enclosed area. I'm not really sure what I expected. I guess I was expecting it to look like the pictures in history books? It's not. But it is a nice place to visit simply for the history behind it. Also, the town is pretty and we went to the museum... More

Come on. The Rock or at least one of them if you believe the rumors. Fun stuff right down from the boat. Sometimes a guy telling you about the rock

Plymouth Rock isn't much to look at. It's a lot smaller than I imagined, and really could be any rock. But... if you are in Plymouth, it's a must to see to say that you did!

This is a simple attraction. It's a rock, right? It was still very cool to visit and see this iconic piece of our American history. The rock is protected in a building but unfortunately this made it a little difficult to get a good photograph of (see my results). We visited during the mid-afternoon and it was a gorgeous and...
