the entire year 1620, an idealistic and brave number of British explorers
left their houses behind to search out a brand new, better existence around the shores
from the mostly untouched mass of land referred to as America. When their
ship, The Mayflower, arrived around the banks of what’s now known
as Plymouth, the planet was
With Thanksgiving around the corner,
people to Massachusetts frequently conduct their very own pilgrimage to
Plymouth, the website of among the earliest European colonizations of
America and the initial Thanksgiving. The city takes great pride
in the recognition as America’s Gateway and is constantly on the work as
a full time income tribute to the heritage. Visitors can enjoy the numerous fun

Rock (Water Street). It monolith is constantly on the stand
strong among the most widely used holiday destinations within the condition,
symbolically marking where early Puritan settlers first came ashore.
Because the rock wasn’t even dubbed using its current recognition until 1741,
its authenticity expires for debate. But no matter its authenticity,
it’s lengthy symbolized a fundamental part of American background and
remains a monument towards the resolution of the first settlers.
Regrettably, many years of enterprising visitors searching for any souvenir
have whittled the rock lower to a small fraction of its former size. Today
it’s securely displayed inside a granite pavilion ten or twenty yards from
its original location.
However popular, Plymouth Rock
is.well, only a rock. So after you have taken a look, mind to
The Mayflower II (Condition Pier on Plymouth Harbor,

508-746-1622). This sprawling, painstakingly detailed representation
of the items Plymouth might have appeared as if throughout the Pilgrims’ time is
laced with several attractions which should impress visitors

Duchesse de Berne: Fallout 4 thought me lots about Boston!
Lizzi Apple: Damn why couldnt you post this 2 weeks ago when I went and cluelessly wandered around! haha
Ian: I have subed and this channel, and this the video is what put me onto you channel. After watching every vid I have 1 suggestion. FOCUS on the food. Spend way more time on it. You guys are doing great but travel is 80% food and I love what you cover but trying to lock yourselves into the 15 min mark so hard. Personally I think if you are working toward the 15 min point then do another vid just for food. Unless you find that food needs no more extra time than is allotted. Everything you touch on in your videos is great and very important so make sure and keep it. However, I came across your vids while my wife and I started planning a trip to Boston and it just seemed that the food portion was lacking.
