Plimoth Plantation on Thanksgiving Day
“Plymouth, MA, just south of Boston, is where you can see the Pilgrim Monument and go onboard a reproduction of the Mayflower ship that brought the Pilgrims to the New World.
Best of all, you can explore Plimoth Plantation, an amazingly authentic recreation of the Pilgrim’s first settlement where actors play the role of each of the 17th-century settlers and Wampanoag Nation members who helped them survive.”
