Natural Feature
“Enjoy the 7 miles that separate Buzzards Bay and Cape Cod. It's the perfect place to walk, run, bike, rollerblade, enjoy the sunsets, fish or just relax and watch the boats pass by. The train bridge, Mass Maritime Academy, and popular seafood restaurants are some of the many things to experience.”

Nature
“That's right, it really exists! The very stone the Pilgrims first stepped on. It's actually pretty small and not much to look at. If you're in the area, you could easily check it out as you're walking along the waterfront but I wouldn't recommend a trip to Plymouth just to see the rock.”

“We personally recommend the Rye Tavern on Old Sandwich Rd. It’s the original standing tavern many used to travel to Cape Cod in their wagons. The Boston (wealthy) residents in the 1800’s maintained tree lots on Cape to be cut to heat their home. Matter of fact, the thievery of trees is the reason why we now have “Land “Court”. Many land disputes required the court to decide. The original tavern has been preserved for you to view. It’s a definite local favorite. ”

Bar
“If you appreciate a good burger, THIS is your spot. The menu varies with seasonal specials, but it also has its regular menu, with each burger being so special you'll think: "Why didn't I think of this combination?". We find ourselves returning again and again to try out yet another new option on that menu. And don't get me started on the truffle fries.....”

“Eclectic food options and numerous beers are available here. There are live performances here often, and there's a separate bar with a stage in the back. If you're interested in a bite to eat, however, the main restaurant features delicious food.”
