The South Shore stretches from Plymouth, at the edge of the Cape, along the coast to Quincy, right outside Boston. Although it adjoins the metropolitan area, this region has the air of being off the main line of suburban or exurban development, with very attractive old shore towns that maintain their own integrity. You can take yourself back to the year 1620 by visiting Plymouth Rock and a replica of the Mayflower; relive the lives of our first settlers at Plimoth Plantation; spend time on quiet, sandy beaches; and visit colonial homes and a church built like a ship. This itinerary begins in Plymouth, where the spirit of religious freedom led to the settlement of a new country. This eTrail contains everything you need to getaway for a quick daytrip or a long weekend jaunt. A route map is included and as are suggestions for the best things to do, places to eat, and places to stay.
