Massachusetts Attractions – Southern MA Region Attractions

The region South of Boston is well noted for being the home of Plymouth Rock, where the Mayflower Pilgrims first reached shore from England in 1620. Visiting Plimoth Plantation is literally like taking a step back in time, as the staff members role-play and do not recognize anything that occurred past the year 1620. Battleship Cove located in Fall River, MA is a great way to explore how the old Battleships in 1942 looked and operated.
