It's 1627 all the time at Plimoth Plantation, the living history attraction in Plymouth, Massachusetts, that recreates the life of the Pilgrims and their Native neighbors. More than 360,000 people descend upon this 17th-century site each year to interact with costumed interpreters and to glimpse the life of New England's earliest settlers.
Plimoth Plantation is located less than an hour from downtown Boston off Route 3 South at Exit 4. It's also just 20 minutes from Cape Cod (Route 3 North - Exit 5). In addition to the 1627 English Village and Wampanoag Homesite, the recreated home of the Pilgrims' Native American neighbors, Plimoth Plantation also offers a visitor center with theaters, specialty shops and a food program featuring 17th-century cuisine.
Plimoth Plantation is open daily from late March through the Sunday after Thanksgiving each year. Check the Plimoth Plantation Web site for hours and admission prices.
