Plymouth Real Estate

Plymouth is a town on the South Shore steeped in history as the site of the colony founded in 1620 by the Mayflower Pilgrims. Despite its prominence in American history, Plymouth has all the modern amenities -- from expansive parks and white-sand beaches -- to top-ranked schools and a wealth of family-friendly activities. The town is located approximately 44 miles southeast of Boston and at 134 square miles is the largest municipality in Massachusetts. Plymouth Plantation (a living 17th century museum) and Plymouth Rock are just two of the area’s most famous attractions. The 60,000 residents enjoy the variety of architectural styles reminiscent of Plymouth’s history from colonial era homes to Georgian manses from the early to mid-1700s to federal styles of the late 1700s and early 1800s. Traditional colonials are also plentiful. Plymouth’s distinct geography in part was what attracted the Pilgrims to sail on from the Cape further north to make their home there. The town’s Atlantic coast is characterized by low plains while its western sections are hilly and fringed with trees. In addition to several small ponds, Plymouth also maintains nine public beaches.  Read more about Plymouth real estate.

More About Plymouth Real Estate

Plymouth Location

Plymouth extends across the entire western shore of Cape Cod Bay and lies along the Pilgrims Highway portion of Route 3 between Cape Cod and Boston. Plymouth can be accessed from six exits along the highway and is one of two endpoints of the Kingston/Plymouth Old Colony Line of the MBTA commuter rail providing service to Braintree and Boston’s South Station. The Plymouth MBTA station is near Cordage Park in North Plymouth along Route 3A.

Bordered on land by Kingston to the north; Bourne to the southeast; Wareham to the southwest; and Carver to the west, Plymouth also shares a small border with Duxbury.

Plymouth Recreation

Plymouth Plantation is a popular destination for tourists and school children to experience 17th-century village life with live exhibits and actors re-enacting various 17th century activities. Other celebrated sites include the oldest standing home in town as well as other homes that were built in the 1600s and inhabited by passengers on the Mayflower.

Notable beaches include White Horse Beach as well as Plymouth Long Beach with its narrow expanse of sand and unrestricted swimming during the summer months. Parks and picnic areas are also a staple in Plymouth. The Myles Standish State Forest is a camping and hiking destination with 16 freshwater lakes and ponds ideal for boating and other water sports. College Pond is especially popular with locals for a quick dip.

One of Plymouth’s best kept secrets is its high density of championship level golf courses, including 11 public and private courses that combine rolling hills with the occasional cranberry bog. Atlantic Country Club is a par 72 course with 18 championship holes while Pinehills Golf Club has two 36-hole courses designed by Rees Jones and Jack Nicklaus.

Plymouth History

While Plymouth is known as “America’s Hometown,” Plymouth was not the first landing of the Pilgrims — the Mayflower anchored in the harbor of Provincetown, Massachusetts first before settling in the sheltered waters of Plymouth Harbor days later. The Pilgrims named their settlement “Plimouth” or “Plilmoth” after the major port city in Devon, England, from which the Mayflower sailed. Eventually Plymouth became a center of rope making, fishing, and shipping in the 19th century, and was home to the world’s largest rope making company. Plymouth continues to be an active port but its major industry today is tourism.

Plymouth is home to a diverse mix of celebrities ranging from actors, athletes, and statesmen.
