Plymouth

   Plimoth Plantation Recreates World Of The Pilgrims

On December 21, 1620, 102 men, women and children arrived on the Mayflower to found the first permanent European settlement north of Virginia. Although plagued by exposure, cold, hunger and disease during the terrible first winter, the colony was firmly established by the next year. Plymouth Rock lies under an imposing granite colonnade, marking the traditional place of landing. Plymouth now combines a summer resort, beaches, a harbor full of pleasure craft, an active fishing town and a remarkable series of restorations of the original town.
