Plymouth, forever famous as the place where the Pilgrims first arrived in 1620, is today a picturesque coastal community in southeastern Massachusetts, just 5 miles north of the Cape Cod Canal. Covering more land area than any other town in Massachusetts, the nearly 100 square mile town is the county seat of Plymouth County. The community has enjoyed steady growth in population and economy due to its unique position between the Boston area's commercial and business activity and the tourist destinations of Cape Cod.
Just 37 miles south of Boston along Route 3, Plymouth is also close to the cities of Brockton and Providence, Rhode Island. Despite its long history and strategic position, Plymouth has managed its growth well and has relatively low population density. Only 45,000 residents live in Plymouth and they are spread out over its vast land area. Even so, Plymouth possesses a healthy blend of residential, commercial and industrial development. Low tax rates, land price and local amenities continue to attract new businesses and residents to Plymouth.
Plymouth spent most of its three-hundred and eighty-six year history as an isolated seaside community based largely on maritime occupations like fishing and boatbuilding. The advent of highway connections to nearby cities has aided Plymouth's growth in recent decades, but it is a decidedly residential town that preserves its unique history. This history can be appreciated by residents and visitors at such places as Plimouth Plantation, a recreated colonial village where costumed guides depict daily life in 17th century New England. Plymouth Rock, where the Pilgrims first landed is also a preserved site.
Additionally, Plymouth offers a multitude of other passive and active recreational activities at over three dozen parks, beaches, and facilities throughout the community. Children can enjoy playgrounds and adults can golf at the country club at some of the public spaces in Plymouth. Remarkably, there are three-hundred and sixty-five lakes within Plymouth and many offer hiking, fishing and boating.
