“Step Back in Time !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

Any visit to Plymouth, the Mayflower has to be accompanied by a visit to the 'Plantation'. This is an accurate replica of the first settler village with characters depicting original settlers occupying some of the buildings and conducting the day to day activities of the time and using language from that time also. We especially enjoyed the visit to the 'native people' settlement where authentic native people spoke about their history and traditions and how they interacted with the early settlers. Be mindful of the guidelines regarding how best to interact with these people to avoid any risk of insensitivity.

“fun trip”

I'm related to William Bradford, so we took pictures of his grave. It was fun to walk through the cemetery and read the inscriptions on the headstones.

I love that Plymouth Plantation has actors that take on the rolls of specific people that actually lived at the plantation. The care that is taken to replicate the past is amazing! Fun and informative!

“Be sure to visit Plymouth Plantation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

If you are visiting Plymouth, MA, be sure to stop and spend a few hours at the Plymouth Plantation. I guarantee you will come away with a new respect for the trials and struggles of starting a life in the New World in the 1600's. The Pilgrim village is superb, with great people acting out their roles as Pilgrims, the cabins, the village, all is first rate in trying to give visitors a true essence of the what ti was like to be a Pligrim. Also visit the craft shop and the Native American village and exhibits. This is truly a well accomplished historical place to visit.
