“the symbol of America's beginning”

Pilgrim Memorial State Park is one of the most heavily visited parks in the state parks system.  Nearly one million people a year come from all over the world to visit "The Rock" and the town where in 1620 Europeans first made a home in New England. This simple glacial erratic boulder on the shore of Plymouth Harbor has become a world famous symbol of the courage and faith of the men and women who founded the first New England colony.  A landscaped waterfront park provides scenic views of Plymouth Harbor. The Mayflower II, a replica of the ship that brought the first Pilgrims to Massachusetts, is anchored at the park

Rock may be original...sure does not look as though it is...the carving sure is not!

Say what you want about it's authenticity, visiting Plymouth Rock as a kid was awe inspiring for me, and probably sparked my interest in American history, as white-washed as it is in some places. Seeing it for the first time made me think about what it must have been like to leave your home, and come to a foreign shore not knowing what you'd find there. For some it was getting away from persecution or a very bad economic situation. For others it was to seek their fortune, in a place that was new and different.

This is why it's important to make your own pilgrimage to see The Rock. If you're American, your ancestors came here for the same reasons as these people. Remember that as you look at this boulder with 1620 carved into it.

The rock is underwhelming, but visiting the town and other attractions make up for it

Well.... it's a rock. But it's a very important rock! It was an important, literal stepping stone that the members of the mayflower used. Underwhelming. Take a picture and keep moving.

It's less about visiting the rock and more about just visiting Plymouth. It's so beautiful here it's well worth your trip. Lots more things to see here than just the rock.
