Plymouth is perhaps one of the most scenic and historic vacation destinations in the region, and you and your loved ones will love spending time in your beautiful Plymouth vacation home. Rather than squeeze into a small hotel room, you can stretch out and make yourself right at home in a rental home. Each home that you could select may have amenities like separate bedrooms, large living areas, great views, a well-equipped kitchen and a host of other amenities.
You simply cannot spend time in the South Shore Massachusetts area without touring some of the most popular historical attractions in the area. You can make time to tour spots like Plymouth Plantation for a recreation of how the earliest settlers lived. You can also tour the Mayflower II, the national Monument to the Forefathers, Pilgrim Hall Museum, Burial Hill, Plymouth Grist Mill, Plymouth Rock and other attractions. This is an area that is ripe with history, so plan to spend several days or more touring these and other historical attractions in the area.
When you visit the Eastern Massachusetts area, you will find that the area is steeped in natural beauty, and you and your loved ones can retreat from civilization to enjoy a slower pace with a visit to a number of hot spots. These popular natural areas in the region include Brewster Gardens, Pilgrim Memorial State Park, the Miles Standish State Forest and the beach at Nelson Memorial Park.
If you love wine or beer, you will not want to miss out on the chance to learn more about the wine and beer making process at some of the top local venues. These include the Plymouth Bay Winery and the Mayflower Brewing Company. At both of these locations, you can sample local drinks, and you can purchase a few cases to take back home to enjoy yourself or to give to your friends and family members. These venues make a great pit stop when you need a break from touring historical attractions and natural areas. If you want to take a road trip into the Boston area, you can also tour the famous Boston winery or the Little Virginia Winery.
