My 30th: Part 2 – Plymouth

Day 3

The original plan was to drive to Salem and then Plymouth, before heading to Cape Cod. Sadly, time wasn't on our side – so several days prior, I decided to cut out Salem, since it was out of the way.

Brent and I were only in Plymouth for several hours, but it was a fun detour and worth checking out. Plus, it let us get our history geek on.

We went to the Jabez House, which is the only house left in the US that pilgrims actually lived in.

And of course, there's the Mayflower replica:

And Plymouth rock (aka: the hardest thing in the world to get a picture of because of all the shadows):

Plymouth is the type of place I want to take Audrey once she's older. It's filled with history, touristy fun and beautiful beaches.


  1. Ashley- love these posts! I've been a reader for a while but don't think I've ever left a comment. I think it's fabulous that you went to Boston, Plymouth and the Cape. I am from Western Massachusetts (ie not Boston) and I find it refreshing that you would come so far to see all of our New Englandy glory! Glad you enjoyed it! I have always had an obsession with New Orleans (probably how you see Nantucket/Cape Cod) and it's on my bucket list to go there at some point. So I get that. Anyway, glad you had a nice trip!

    1. Thanks so much! I love Massachusetts, it was beautiful. Definitely jealous that you live there.
