This famous rock marks the spot where the Pilgrims first set foot in the New World in their quest for religious freedom and tolerance, while holding the high ideal of building a country that would stand as a "light on the hill," a beacon of Godliness to the world.
The reaction to EVERYONE who ever visits Plymouth Rock is "IS THAT IT? IT IS SO SMALL"
Well, I don't know what frame of reference they are using, but they are certainly exaggerating! I can see why the Pilgrims noticed the rock halfway across the Atlantic. It is HUGE and worth a trip from anywhere in the world to see this monstrous hunk of granite. Bigger than Stone Mountain and Ayers Rock combined. Astronauts have said they can see to specific images clearly from space. The Great Wall of China and Plymouth Rock. If you stand behind it, it blocks the Wax Museum, Cranberry World West Visitor's Center and the Sun. If everyone on Earth took home a 100lb. chunk of Plymouth Rock every minute, it would take until the year 8343 to lose 1% of its mass. And it is a FREE ATTRACTION. Plymouth makes no tourist money from this overgrown meteor.
Plymouth Rock is worth the visit if you're in the area-it will only take a few minutes but the view of the Bay is gorgeous and the downtown area of Plymouth is nice. I have taken my kids to see it just because I know it's something they'll learn about in school.
The significance of this rock is clear - it marks the spot where the Pilgrim Fathers first arrived in the New World, back in 1620. But ultimately, it's just a rock and there's nothing to seriously appreciate about! Move on to the Mayflower.
