Behind the legacy of Plymouth, MA, aptly named “America’s Hometown,” lies a quiet coastal town brimming with history. Yes, the first Thanksgiving was said to have taken place here in November 1621. Yes, the Plymouth Rock, first sighted by settlers on the Mayflower is surprisingly small. Plymouth is more than a stop on the field trip with its residents still living in First Period and Colonial homes from the 17th century, Greek and Gothic Revivals and Italianates, Queen Anne and Shingle-style homes from the 1800’s to boot. Located on the South Shore of Massachusetts, it has tons of activities with panoramic views for miles. Seafood restaurants and an plethora of seaside activities make Plymouth a great place to summer.

Escape To The Greater Plymouth Area
If you are professional in the Greater Boston area and looking for a restful country setting to escape to and yet be able to return to Boston quickly, then Plymouth offers you that unique opportunity. In fact, it is exactly 55 miles from most major Boston Hospitals to the southern tip of Plymouth and avoids crossing the Cape Cod Canal. To be able to break away from the beach or golf course and return to Boston within an hour and half or less is such a luxury for living outside America’s city. It has all the benefits of Cape Cod but not the maddening traffic, bridge standstills, and lengthy restaurant waits.
