Plimoth Plantation & Mayflower II Tour
Visit the recently settled in Pilgrims who are living in the year 1627 at the Plimoth Plantation. Coming across the great Atlantic in 1620, these freedom seeking people developed a colony in what is now southeastern Massachusetts. Become part of the experience as costumed, role-playing Pilgrims educate visitors about what life was like in one of America's first colonies. Feel free to interact with the colonists and ask them questions, as each has their own story, hardships, and insights about the settlement to share. Watch workers perform daily tasks like carpentry, farming, and cooking.
After exploring the plantation, head over to the Wampanoag Homesite where true Wampanoag and other tribe natives are residing, eager to tell about their ancestors and heritage. They'll explain how they helped their new European neighbors, and saved them from perishing in harsh conditions. The active Wampanoags may teach how to play the ancient tribal game of hubbub, perform musical rhythms, or even lead you in a dancing ritual. Learn about the different types of furs that are being used as well as the crops that are being grown in their gardens.
Other attractions you'll have the opportunity to see during this tour include the Mayflower II, Plymouth Rock, and Cole's Hill. The Mayflower II is quite an experience as it is a real life replica of the original ship that the Pilgrims sailed to America on. Climb aboard and learn about the ship's specifications and about the miserable and dangerous voyage that the Pilgrims miraculously survived.
