Travel Tips for Plymouth
Plymouth Rock & the Mayflower
Day trip to Plymouth just before Thanksgiving seems to make sense. We toured the MayflowerII as well as the Plimoth Plantation. A quick peek at the Plymouth Rock. There is also a modern day business district if you care to do shopping...or find a restaurant.
The costumed docents aboard the ship were very helpful in explaining what life was like for the families living in such a small space w/ diminishing rations.
Some questions to the ancestors
Ask some questions to the passengers back to the past . They tell you their life on the ship and why they decided to leave Europe. They speak an ancient English. I have some concerns to understand the current language. Imagine for the English of the 1700'.
JUST LIKE A RUBBER DUCKY
One of the best ways to see Plymouth by land and sea is the Splashdown Duck Boat Tour. Located next door to the Governor Bradford Hotel, this tour is a lot of fun for everyone.
The big kick is to see the Plymouth Rock location from the water side, and the water ride past the replica of the Mayflower. Close your eyes as you pass the Mayflower replica and you can feel the riggings blowing in the wind of your own 2 masted schooner. Ahoy!!!
Largest Menu in Plymouth..
Their menu on their walls is like large chalkboards with a list of what they make. Their dining room is rather small, though. This place is located in the Benny's shopping Plaza on Rt. 3A.
Their burgers were very good and so were their fries.
They also deliver or prepare for pick-up.
Their hours are 10am -10pm every day. I liked their burger and fries. Not bad and you can find coupons in the mail. Gift certificates are also available.
You can also get real buffalo burgers here, too!
They take credit cards, too!
Berthed a few steps from Plymouth Rock, the Mayflower II is a full-scale reproduction of the type of ship that brought the Pilgrims from England to America in 1620. The 106 1/2-foot vessel was constructed in England from 1955 to 1957 using designs, tools and methods similar to those used around the time of the original Mayflower's sailing. Great care was taken to use historically accurate materials such as English oak timbers, linen canvas sails, and true hemp rope. On June 13 1957, the Mayflower II arrived at Plymouth after a 55 day voyage. Since 1958, Plimoth Plantation has exhibited Mayflower II to tell the story of the famous 1620 voyage and the terrible "first winter" in which half of the original Mayflower's passengers and crew died from exposure and malnutrition.
Once you step aboard, you're hit with the thought about how small the ship is. The quarters shared by the 102 passengers, who spent 66 days here sailing toward freedom and the unknown, are cramped and dark and you have to admire the determination of these people crowded into the 'tween decks area. There was little privacy other than blankets hung as curtains between the piles of their worldly belongings separating one family from the next. Their personal possessions, except for the minimum needed for daily existence, were stowed below in the hold with the ship's stores until they were brought ashore at Plymouth.
The Ship is manned with actors portraying 17th century seamen readying the ship for the return voyage to England, who will answer any questions as they go through their chores.
