For a place as historically important as this spot, it's under represented. The pilgrims first touched foot on the soil here before heading to Plymouth Rock where they established the first colony. Do not make a special trip to see this plaque, but the causeway...More

This little Park could AND Should be a beautiful place but it is completely and totally overgrown with weeds and grass. A real contrast to beautiful Provincetown!

This is a small memorial to commemorate the first landing of the Pilgrims in November 11, 1620. It is worth seeing as a remembrance of American History.

We drove to the sign and went through a lovely neighborhood with beautiful homes and gardens. The sign is on a circle and is easy to miss. Nothing much around it but some trees and a great view of the water. If you are a...More

As descendants of Pilgrim John Howland we were looking for the site "in Provincetown" where a relative had told us that she had put a memorial stone. Docents at the headquarters of the Society of Mayflower Descendants in Plymouth did not know where it might...More
