For a place as historically important as this spot, it's under represented. The pilgrims first touched foot on the soil here before heading to Plymouth Rock where they established the first colony. Do not make a special trip to see this plaque, but the causeway...More

It's a little known fact that the Pilgrims (yes, those Pilgrims) originally landed in Provincetown. My son says they just weren't "fabulous" enough to stick around, but it's nice to see a small tribute to their presence anyway. And it's sort of cool to say...More

This little Park could AND Should be a beautiful place but it is completely and totally overgrown with weeds and grass. A real contrast to beautiful Provincetown!

This is a small memorial to commemorate the first landing of the Pilgrims in November 11, 1620. It is worth seeing as a remembrance of American History.

I'm assuming the shoreline has changed slightly over the past 400 years as the simple plaque commemorating the historic spot where the pilgrims first landed is in the middle of a roundabout at the end of Commercial Street. It is not immediately obvious but is...More

As descendants of Pilgrim John Howland we were looking for the site "in Provincetown" where a relative had told us that she had put a memorial stone. Docents at the headquarters of the Society of Mayflower Descendants in Plymouth did not know where it might...More
