Plimoth Plantation & Mayflower II Tour, village

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.

Another fantastic tour that the entire family will love! Postives: the enactors on the plimoth side are realistic and informative and polite. The site itself is beautiful and easy to navigate. Our family enjoyed meeting the artisans and watching them work. They very kindly answered all our questions. Negatives: the native americans/portrayers were not informative and held personal conversations and basically ignored the guests. Spend your time elsewhere. The shops were amazing and had terrific items available. We found so much here to add beauty to our homes as well as to read and educate ourselves.

Not to be missed if you wish to see what life was really like for the first people to live successfully in the american colonies. Definitely drives home the fact that life for the pilgrims was not for the lazy or the faint of heart. See the plantation in the leaf peeping season to really get an attitude of gratitude going for the holidays. I guarantee you won't get the christmas blues after seeing this place! Definitely gives one a great new fondness for your refrigerator and stove. You'll never gripe about cleaning your appliances ever again. You might actually go home and mend something, just for the mundane peace of it .....

We went during the week and it would have been nice to have seen more reinactments, but it was also nice not having to deal with lots of people and long lines.
