Now surrounded by protective pillars, this unimposing rock was allegedly the first piece of land touched by the Pilgrims in the New World.

Was a in Plymouth in business and made a quick stop at Plymouth Rock. I didn’t know it was down inside that structure, so spent way too long looking for it. The structure it’s encased in is far more interesting than the rock itself!

If you are in Plymouth you should stop to see it. I was surprised at how small it is but I guess people have chipped it away over the years and it is now protected. A very nice scenic location and a short walk from...More

The rock just sat there. It didn't do anything. Some one built it a cage like it was going to walk away. People threw garbage in the cage. Rocks don't eat garbage! People & visitors of Plymouth stop polluting God's country. You all disgust me!

This is the rock? Really? Very laughable experience. Don't go out of your way to see it because its a boulder I could find in my backyard in a cage. The "Mayflower" wasn't even here when we came to visit. Just very pointless on our...More

Visiting Plymouth Rock should be on your list, regardless of the fact that the size of the rock is a bit underwhelming. Why? Because the history behind the rock and the significance of its story is what is important. There are signs with the history...More

Alright . . . I grew up a few miles from Plymouth and I get the history and I really do love the town of Plymouth BUT I feel that this rock is a huge letdown. Yes, I know I am quite familiar with it...More
