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

It’s just a rock, surrounded by a fancy little pavilion. And it’s smaller than one might expect. I’m sure the pilgrims never set foot on this little rock, haha.

It's a rock, it was bigger than I thought but it's not exciting, the ranger was informative. The view was very nice, the replica ship want there so that was disappointing.

This is such a significant place in the settlement of our country by Europeans who first came over here. I expected to see the rock, probably protected by a fence or railing. The columned building built over the top, along with the "1620" chiseled into...More

Just a rock on the beach. But it is the site of the pilgrims' landing. Worth the drive if you're a history buff, but bring a jacket. Gets windy.

Easy to get to. Easy to see. FREE! (Except to park). It's a rock..not even a big rock...in a cage....under a Lincoln Memorial-type stonery. Check it out just to say you did.

Even if you are not impressed with the size of the symbolic rock, the McKim, Mead and White granite portico with barrel vault ceiling is beautiful. Lots to statues and memorials to see in the immediate area. Nice harbor view from top of hill opposite.

Now, I was prepared. I actually purchased and read a book about the voyage of Mayflower before coming to New England. We visited off-season and that's probably saved the day. It was sunny and chilly and we were able to find free parking 20 ft...More
