Owner description: Now surrounded by protective pillars, this unimposing rock was allegedly the first piece of land touched by the Pilgrims in the New World.

This is a very well preserved piece oh history. We had hoped to visit the Mayflower but it was in dry dock getting repairs done and it wouldn't be back for visitors until the end of may which was a great pity.

We lived nearby, so could see "the rock" whenever we wanted, but usually just passed by. It's not that it's a terrible sight, it's just not much -- a rather big rock set quite a bit under a sort of pavilion roof that you can stand around. It's definitely not the biggest rock most people have seen, so it's just the history of this having probably been the rock that the pilgrims stepped out on when they first arrived that's important.

It was really cool to see Plymouth Rock and there was a tour guide there telling you about it but it was very short and got boring after a few minutes. I wouldn't recommend it for families with young/very young children but the older kids might like it a bit.

It's literally a rock. if you happen to be in the area and are a history buff, then sure, go visit, take a picture, and then you can tell your non-New England friends you have seen it. The end.

So, a visit to Plymouth Rock in April was not my first choice of a trip, but we were heading to Mass. to celebrate a friends graduation and departure from the east coast so rather than stay in Boston we decided to add a side trip and Plymouth rock was the decided point.
Unfortunately it looks like the display of Plymouth Rock was a second thought to the Historical society. The rock has been "tagged," some disrespectful person(s) wrote graffiti or the rock, its been washed but the tell tale sign remain.
