This monument is an amazingly beautiful work of art, tucked away from the Main and Court St. areas, but very close. You have to see it to understand the beauty of it.

It was a rainy day so we only got to drive around this massive Monument. It is just a short ways from Plymouth Rock.

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!
