We loved the museum and the tour by Leo was a brilliant introduction to the Pilgrims. We had lots of questions and he was very knowledgeable.

Plymouth Visitor Information Center

Reviewed By 2CAtravelers - Brattleboro, Vermont

This is the place to go for info and maps plus the knowledge of local people. There is a pay parking lot right behind it but look for the free 15 minute spaces located on the south side near the entrance to the visitor's center. They can probably answer any question you might have about what to visit, where to walk, or where to eat. Very Helpful!!

Found this place on Trip Advisor, sounded fun and different so we figured we would check it out. It's inside the mall, no signage outside of mall....just go in, you'll find it. We chose to do the Black Ops room... It was a blast. When we first entered the room, we weren't too sure if we would like it, but we were locked in and just started searching everything.... And figured out our first clue.... It requires team work, concentration and thought! Look at everything, read everything and think! My two teenaged boys loved it! It's not scary at all and you don't feel trapped or claustrophobic at all. We all can't wait to go back! The employee will come and check on you too a couple of times in case you are stumped and need help with a clue!

National Monument to the Forefathers

Reviewed By Joyflnoise - Atlanta, Georgia

Worth a walk or drive to see this beautiful monument. It is the largest freestanding granite monument in the United States. You can take the circular drive around the monument. Or, walk up the sidewalk for a closer view. Doesn’t take a few minutes and worth a visit.

K1 Speed Kingston

Reviewed By momckb - Boston, Massachusetts

I purchased a Groupon for K1 Speed for my husband and 3 teen sons as a Father's Day activity. We were unable to go that day but, visited yesterday on a summer Sunday. It was very quiet and there was minimal wait. The venue is located in the Kingston Collection (mall). The desk staff was friendly but, not particularly helpful with the registration process on computers. The facility opened recently so the equipment is in good shape. It was very loud with go carts speeding and loud music so my family was unable to hear the safety briefing and found this annoying. Since they had been in F1 cars at other venues, it wasn't a real big deal but could be problematic for newbies. The race staff was friendly and safety conscious. There were a few times where the cars slowed way down for no apparent reason. Everyone had a great time. Even though we purchased 4, they did only 3 races (10 min each) and stopped as their necks and back were sore. We were able to save the 4 unused races "indefinitely" which was appreciated.
All in all, everyone had a good time...even my husband was saying, "next time we come...!" They sell food or you can bring your own or purchase from the food court right outside. We chose to go to a local restaurant. There are many in the area to choose from.
The races aren't cheap ($19/each but there are package deals) but, it is a fun day out and we recommend it.

Even though need knee replacement, needed to walk through this cemetery to take pictures for genealogy purposes. Beautiful scene of the harbor from the top. Definitely will take a guided tour next time. Wish I had printed the layout before leaving home.

Brewster Gardens

Reviewed By Alison R - Charlotte, North Carolina

Nice walk and part of the whole Plymouth experience. You can park at the grist mill and take a nice walk through the gardens and enjoy the scenery and historic houses/buildings in the distance. You can take one of the paths that parallels the street toward main st and enjoy the walk instead of walk along the street. It doesnt take long to walk through the park.

Pilgrim Hall Museum

America's oldest public museum is dedicated to the preservation and presentation of both Native American and Pilgrim artifacts.

Reviewed By David S - Exton, Pennsylvania

It's not a very large museum, but its impact is quite impressive. If you love history and appreciate the Mayflower story and odyssey of the Pilgrims, then you'll enjoy this museum. There are a number of impressive paintings paying tribute to the Pilgrim landing at Plymouth, the signing of the Mayflower Compact, and other events related to this colonial era. There are numerous artifacts including tools, weapons, furniture, and bibles, and you can even touch a piece of Plymouth Rock. We spent about an hour here and it was well worth the price of $26 for two adults and one child. They even have a family deal of $28, so it makes it affordable if you have more than one child.

Adults are encouraged to play right alongside their kids, ensuring an unforgettable family experience. Create lasting memories as you race down our slides, climb through our jungles and explore together!

Reviewed By Victoria K - Kingston, Massachusetts

Impressed with the amount of activity offered for the kiddos. I'm a grandmother and find that my grandsons are able to get a lot of energy out and spend hours running, sliding and playing in the jungle gym and pretend houses/buildings. Lot's of fun, but with the $20 fee to enter and the price of food and drinks, why charge the parent a fee to get in. The kids can't in themselves so a guardian must accompany. Seems a bit unreasonable to me and a charge that shouldn't be acceptable. I'm not riding slides or using any of the equipment except maybe a chair to sit on while I keep an eye on the boys.
