This spot is so crucial to the way our country was created, but there isn’t much here to celebrate that. I was hoping to see more information via a display of some kind but it’s literally just the plaque. There is stuff about the marsh,...More

This is located at the end of town directly across from the breakwater. It was built in recognition of Provincetown being the first place the Pilgrims landed. The park is small and almost solemn as there are many commemorative granite plaques dedicated to the memory of locals and...More

As I mentioned before, this area was under construction so I am sure it will be much better soon. A great little part of history to see.

For a place as historically important as this spot, it's under represented. The pilgrims first touched foot on the soil here before heading to Plymouth Rock where they established the first colony. Do not make a special trip to see this plaque, but the causeway...More

It's a little known fact that the Pilgrims (yes, those Pilgrims) originally landed in Provincetown. My son says they just weren't "fabulous" enough to stick around, but it's nice to see a small tribute to their presence anyway. And it's sort of cool to say...More

This little Park could AND Should be a beautiful place but it is completely and totally overgrown with weeds and grass. A real contrast to beautiful Provincetown!
