Step back in history at Plymouth's living museum — the Plimoth Plantation — where costumed guides live and work in a recreated 17th century village and Native American settlement. Historical sites include Plymouth Rock and an original replica of the "Mayflower" ship that brought the first Europeans to the New World. Fresh salt air, ocean breezes, picturesque villages and over 300 miles of beaches tell you this is Cape Cod! Country roads weave along its 75-mile stretch of land lined with cranberry bogs, charming antique shops, golf courses, ocean resorts, and quaint villages. The islands of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, inhabitated since 1639, are easily accessible by ferries from Hyannis and Woods Hole. Beautiful beaches, sand dunes, stately architecture, and tranquil sunsets beckon the visitor to return year after year.
