Loved this place so much. We all learned a lot, and even my 13 year old was mesmerized by the video depicting the first landing, the historical artifacts and the model Mayflower. And we loved the gorgeous view from up top. Such a beautiful place.

This square shaped monument has 116 steps and 60 ramps. The 360 degree views at the top are well worth the climb. The climb itself is broken up nicely with ramps, windows and plaques of the places that donated to the building of the monument....More

The monument and museum are definitely worth your time. If you go on a clear day, you can see the Boston skyline across Cape Cod Bay.

The museum is pretty good, you'll learn everything there is to know about the pilgrims first stop. To get the rest of the story, check out the jennymuseum walking tour in Plymouth.

I'm not sure where the ferry comes in but my husband & I both feel it must be. P town is not large at all. Of course this is assuming you are in shape to walk several blocks with no effort.

It will probably take you about 20 minutes to walk from the Monument to the ferry for Long Point. Have fun!

Parking included one entry, not that expensive but well worth it. I think Peking was $15. Admission $12
