Travel Tips for Plymouth
Very, very basic
The interiors of the homes in Plimoth Plantation fill only very basic needs. Costumed guides answer questions about cooking and life in the plantation...some will discuss cooking, while others will discuss the business of governing the colony and dealing with England.
A Bird's Eye View of the Settlement
A trip to Plymouth isn't complete without going to the reproduction village...known as Plimoth Plantation. It's like walking through the 1600's and talking to the early settlers. These reproduction villages are excellent for school children when they are doing their American History classes, but they also make a wonderful afternoon for adults as well.
The lady of the house
This woman sat in a native's tee pee that was filled with fur pelts, small tools, the smell of a wood fire, and stories from the past. The kids were fascinated with her. She knew her history so well.
the machine to vaccume the berries
This equipment is used to get the berries from the water to the trucks (thru a chute) to haul the berries to a processing plant for shipping and juice making, etc. It's pretty chilly out there and the men are in high boots out in the water up to their knees.
View the harbor from the hill above town
This is the view of Plymouth Harbor and an outlying
peninsula. This sheltered harbor has a strip of
sand so as to protect from turbulent weather
This is from the hill above the cemetery.
William Bradford and many of the other
first settlers are buried near the place
of this view. This is Gurnet Point with the
lighthouse on a peninsula that comes out
from Duxbury Village
