“A great day trip from Boston!!”
Reviewed January 28, 2011

I highly recommend going out for a day trip to Plymouth for a tour of the Mayflower II and the local graveyard.  Don't miss Plymouth Plantation either...it's about 3 miles away.  The Mayflower II is a replica of the original Mayflower and there are costumed re-enactors on board as well as uniformed guides to answer any questions.  It really did augment the history we've been learning.  We followed that up with a visit to the Plymouth Plantation...a "living history" museum with a Wampanoag Homesite where guides in traditional Wampanoag clothing give visitors a sense of Native American life during the 1600's. Several of the guides in this portion of the plantation were excellent and very informative. Then there is the 1627 English Village..."inhabited" by re-enactors who do a fabulous job.  Our family has been to many "living history" museums and this was the best we've experienced!  The "actors/interpreters" are wonderful (we actually sat and talked with one woman for nearly an hour...she was fascinating, imparted tons of history and never broke character...not even once!).  The food at the Visitor Center is quite good and the gift shops are fun with unique things.
