Plymouth Rocks! - January 2020

Murder, Drag Queens, Frozen Pilgrims and more - all just up the road...

Welcome to my world here in ‘America’s Hometown’, also known as Plymouth. I invite you to join me, as I explore the many reasons Plymouth is a sure bet for visiting often.

It’s time for those near and dear to learn more about the town of Plymouth, so together we will conquer the continent where the continent was first conquered. We’ll begin with knowing what is happening during 2020, the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower voyage, and we’ll learn a little history along the way.

Over the weekend, I ran into a young couple who have had jobs in Bourne for the last ten years. Between work, a family, and the responsibilities that come with both, they don’t know much about Plymouth, the tourism town. A veritable wealth of history, seaside adventure, family fun, good eats, and great music is right outside their door.

They both grew up in North Plymouth and, as kids, went on the obligatory field trips to the rock, but that was many years ago and diapers and dollars now stand in the way. Or do they? Staycations, as I call them, are the best and easiest way to have family fun. A Staycation is the best way on a busy schedule to take time off to enjoy life. Staycations are a way to make friends with our neighbors who live near us.

It’s time for us all to realize that the term ‘tourist’ doesn’t mean people far away. It means everyone, even within the vicinity of where we live. Tourism is the #1 industry in Plymouth and Plymouth County. Tourism is why Cape Cod is known all over the world. Let’s all don our tourism hats and make plans for our New England exploits. Between 2020 and 2030, we’ll see towns founded 400 years ago up and down the New England coast, and it all begins with Plymouth. Each month I will check in and give you options for touring your own back yard.
