About The Plymouth Area Visitor Information
The Town of Plymouth was incorporated in 1620. It is the seat of Plymouth County, and has the largest area of any town in the Commonwealth. Plymouth is the oldest town in Massachusetts with a rich colonial history and lots of charm. For most of its existence, Plymouth was an isolated seacoast area where economic fortunes were linked to the sea and shipping. The site of the original 1620 settlement is now a portion of today’s Downtown/Harbor District. In contrast with modern life, Plymouth Rock still more than a landing place, it stands as a symbol of the freedom and a reminder of the first Thanksgiving.
Since the arrival of the pilgrims, some 382 years ago, Plymouth has grown from a small settlement into a large community of over 50,000 people, in an area which spans over 100 square miles. There are 365 ponds and lakes, one for every day of the year, a variety of public beaches, a working town wharf, acres of park and recreation land and numerous historic landmarks for residents and tourists alike to visit and enjoy.
