Plymouth County CVB

Everyone knows Plymouth, Massachusetts, is “America’s Hometown,” where the Pilgrims first landed. But Plymouth County also boasts miles of scenic coastline, and is the birthplace of the cranberry industry. The diverse attractions we offer are a travel planner’s dream.

Plimoth Plantation offers powerful personal encounters with history built on thorough research about the Wampanoag People and the Colonial English community in the 1600s.

A treat for the younger visitor? Thomas Land at Edaville USA brings to life everyone’s favorite No. 1 Engine! Enjoy a ride on a life-sized Thomas the Tank Engine™ train.

The A.D. Makepeace Company, the world’s largest cranberry grower, offers group tours in any season, or visit during Columbus Day weekend for the uniquely old-fashioned Cranberry Harvest Celebration.

We enjoy seafood specialties all year round, but for a true celebration of the region’s treats, come to the Cape Cod Scallop Festival at the end of September.



Celebrate the sesquicentennial of the Chisholm Trail with Michael Martin Murphey, Red Steagall, The Sons of the Pioneers.  Also historic artisans and crafts, activities and Buckaroo Camps for the kids, a genuine longhorn drive and loading onto the historic steam engine, gun fighters, train robbers, cowboy poets, storytellers, authors, re-enactors, American Indian demonstrations and arena events, including Buffalo Bill's Wild West Shows.
