Digging deeper into hidden Plymouth

Historic sight-seeing definitely tops the list of things to do in Plymouth. But remember, there is much to do in this port and see. Board a whale watcher and feel the crash of spray as a humpback drenches another boatload of visitors. Pick up a six-iron and tee-up on a golf-course meandering through wild cranberry bogs. Or turn up and tune in to an evening of folk music, tapping your foot to songs that the Pilgrim Fathers probably hummed as they set about building their settlement, and a nation.


Plymouth shines in summer

Let's face it, those sitting in their Plymouth vacation rentals are pretty likely to be on the coast, facing the Atlantic Ocean. There's going to be a smattering of rain at times, but Plymouth's summers are mostly dry and sunny—ready-made for sightseeing or boat excursions out across the bay. If you want to avoid the crowds, though, avoid public holidays and the summer vacation weekends. Perhaps the sweetest slot to enjoy Plymouth is in late spring, when the air is mild and the crowds are yet to flock in.

Natural features

Sheltering a nation behind Plymouth Bay

Take a look at a map of Plymouth, and you can see why it was chosen by the Pilgrim Fathers for their first settlement. Nestled behind long spits of sand, Plymouth Bay is well sheltered from the worst the Atlantic throws its way. It's not just a shelter for boats, either. These calm turquoise waters are a favored haunt of harbor seals. Head inland and the understated beauty of the Myles Standish State Forest takes over. Squint your eyes and its stippled lakes and stands of bear oak hint at how the land might have looked before that first footfall.
