Plymouth Center is the most prominent of Plymouth’s neighborhoods and is often referred to as Downtown Plymouth. All of Plymouth’s other regions are named based on their geographic relationship to Plymouth Center. Home to the Town Hall and the town harbor, Plymouth Center also houses many of the area’s most famous attractions, including Plymouth Rock, the Pilgrim Hall Museum and the Mayflower II. The neighborhood is older than some of Plymouth’s other neighborhoods so homes are typically older in character and located closer together. A cluster of newer condos with striking waterfront views are centered around the harbor, offering additional options for young professionals and empty nesters. Plymouth Center appeals to many prospective home-buyers because of the easy access to the beaches, dining and shopping options and schools.
Plymouth Center borders Pilgrim’s Highway (Route 3) along the south; Samoset Street to the northeast; and Cape Cod Bay to the north.
