In 1620, the Pilgrims sailed from England to present-day Massachusetts and eventually celebrated the first Thanksgiving. You will enjoy paying a visit Plimoth Plantation during this thankful time of year. You can go aboard a full scale reproduction of the Mayflower ship and visit a 17th-century village where colonial history comes alive. There is also a Wampanoag Homesite where you can learn about Native American life along the banks of the Eel River.
