Rightly calling itself "America's Hometown," Plymouth holds a prominent place in the nation's history and culture as the site of the first Puritan colony.
On the 9th (Tue), take in nature's colorful creations at Brewster Gardens, don't miss a visit to Plymouth Rock, contemplate the long history of Mayflower II, then take an in-depth tour of Plimoth Plantation, and finally admire the majestic nature at National Monument to the Forefathers. Keep things going the next day: take an in-depth tour of The Jenney, head off the coast to Brown's Bank, and then contemplate the long history of Lizzie Borden House.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Plymouth trip simple and quick.

Redding to Plymouth is an approximately 13-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and bus.

Prepare for little chillier weather when traveling from Redding in June: high temperatures in Plymouth hover around 76°F and lows are around 56°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Thu) early enough to go by car to Sandwich.
