Worth the walk over from waterfront. Lovely large historic statue. Plenty of parking, lovely setting. Sits up on a slight hill above harbor- can be windy.

Visited this monument several times - a true historic site of important historical significance especially in the realm of religion - why? Because the Pilgrims helped spread the name of the true God Jehovah to the western hemisphere- go check it out!

Quick visit with great parking and nice scenery. The visit probably takes around 15-20 minutes. Worth a stop.

Just come to Plymouth, visit the visitors center. You can see the monument just by walking to it. Easy distance. Or, there are trolley tours that will take you to the highlights of Plymouth. Very inexpensive!
