The memorial is breathtaking. You have to find it because it is a few streets away from the other attractions. It is well worth your time.

Not much to do but check out the statue, although it's a great spot to walk the dog! Good walking path and really close to town and the waterfront.

It was an amazing experience to see this monument in person. So grandiose! My wife and I were both very impressed. Very historic. If you are in Plymouth, you must go see this.

Whenever we have friends in town we make sure we take them here. Seems like few people know about this. We have never encountered crowds side it's a couple minute drive from the downtown area. Very impressive for all.

I was so glad our guide on Viator took us to see this monument. One of our fellow travelers was able to confirm that her ancestor had actually been on the Mayflower. His name was on the monument. Really cool

This monument is a short drive from the centre of Plymouth and has plenty of space to park. We didn't find anything to do other than walk round the monument, read the inscriptions and take photos, so we were only there for 15-20mins.

The monument is right near downtown with ample parking. There was no one actually looking at the monument when we went there, only cars parked there for the festival. It was a cool piece of history to walk around and read and see the details...More

Just come to Plymouth, visit the visitors center. You can see the monument just by walking to it. Easy distance. Or, there are trolley tours that will take you to the highlights of Plymouth. Very inexpensive!
