Picturesque Plymouth, MA is full of intriguing history that shaped the very beginnings of our country.  Choose from ONE of the following walking tours to learn more about this region.

Business Not as Usual Tour: Hear the stories of struggle and survival that set the cornerstones of our country. Learn how the Pilgrims economic principles instituted free trade, industry, and capitalism.

Discover Plymouth’s History: Take a step back in time as our guide, dressed in period clothing, takes you along the same paths our forefathers walked hundreds of years ago. Learn about the people, places and events that shaped the beginning of our country as you walk through the historic district of Plymouth.

Forefather’s Monument: Standing 81 feet tall and located on a hill in historic Plymouth, this hidden gem is the largest free standing solid granite monument in the country. Come learn what each of the five statues represents and hear the history of the Pilgrims all in one spot!
On your tour you will see the sight of the first meetinghouse that was built in 1621 and the sights of some of the homes of the first Pilgrims. You will walk by the first burial site of the Pilgrims and walk up First Street to the sight of the first church built in Plymouth. These are only a sample of the history you will experience while on the tour. Of course a large part of the tour experience will be hearing the humorous and entertaining historical perspective of our costumed miller.

Comments about Smart Destinations Discover Plymouth's History - A Walking Tour:

This was an outstanding opportunity to be able to interact with two hard working, passionate and knowledgeable people, Leo and Nancy. They have created a wonderful exhibit explaining and demonstrating the importance of grist mills to our history and how they work. You can also enjoy an exhibit on the cranberry industry. The best part however, is the one hour guided walking tour of Plymouth's historical district, led by Leo. He draws you in with his depth of knowledge and wonderful stories. Additionally, he is able to answer all of your questions and the more you learn from him, the more questions you will want to ask! :-). He brought the history alive for us and I highly recommend this experience.

This was the best tour our family has gone in while visiting Massachusetts. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable, passionate and shared so many interesting facts.

Great Tour, Highly Informative
By JenWan Verified Reviewer from Fort Worth, TX on

Comments about Smart Destinations Discover Plymouth's History - A Walking Tour:

I went on this walking tour with my family (including 3 children, ages 4, 6, and 8). It was a lot of fun. We combined it with the tour of the Jenney Grist Mill. Nancy took our reservation over the phone - she was very friendly and helpful. Leon, the tour guide, was fun and educational. It wasn't too long, which is good when you have smaller children. After the tour, grab an affordable ice cream cone or italian ice near the bottom of the mill.
