Plymouth, Massachusetts is America’s Hometown. Celebrated each year with a fabulous Fourth of July parade, a Thanksgiving parade, as well as the commemorative Pilgrim’s Progress, Plymouth is simply one of the greatest places in the country in which to live. Steeped in the rich history of the Pilgrims, marked by the living history museum at the Plimoth Plantation and the Mayflower II resting in the harbor, Plymouth offers an amazing spot for tourists and townsfolk alike to enjoy.

The historic waterfront boasts everything from the hallowed Plymouth Rock to tons of exceptional dining opportunities – from a simple sandwich to a gourmet meal to homemade ice cream with live entertainment that spills from several taverns and restaurants all year round. The gorgeous harbor offers a stunning spot to moor your yacht, take a cruise on one of Captain John’s Boats in search of whales, fish off the jetty, or just sit and relax and watch the sunset.

Situated on Russell Street in the heart of downtown Plymouth, you’ll find The Registry. Previously an active government facility that has been a local landmark for over a century, it symbolizes the greater Plymouth community. It’s conveniently accessible to highways, the commuter rail, bus lines as well as walking distance to an eclectic mix of restaurants, pubs, entertainment, historic attractions and the waterfront.

The town of Plymouth has over 50,000 people. It is a community that has a strong mix of cultural and social diversity, intellectual vitality, and technological innovation. The neighborhood fosters a strong community bond, promotes civic pride and encourages a connection with its residents through countless community events, activities and public recreation areas. Plymouth’s community represents all ages, professions and lifestyles. From Fortune 500 business leaders to independent local artists, the community thrives with a mix of opportunities for all to enjoy.

Its school district is the largest in the state with fourteen schools, including a new state-of-the-art high school and two colleges; Quincy College and Curry College. The town is also known for one of the best youth sports programs in all of Massachusetts.

Plymouth benefits from one of the lower tax rates on the South Shore due to a mix of residential, commercial, industrial and retail establishments. It was developed, not by chance, but rather through a master plan and careful attention to building a community rather than just building.

Located 40 miles from Boston, Plymouth enjoys its status as a major tourist destination, leading industrial and commercial hub as well as some of the finest residential communities in Massachusetts. Plymouth makes up the entire western shore of Cape Cod Bay with nine public beaches and is also home to seven golf courses.
