A Photo Trip through Plymouth Harbor
Plymouth is one of many beautiful small towns along the coastline in Massachusetts. This town is rich in historical significance and natural beauty. Whether you are a history buff or photographer, you will appreciate the diverse range of activities and ample sightseeing. Most notably, Plymouth is home to Pilgrim Memorial State Park, one of the nation’s most visited parks. This waterfront park is a living piece of history, home to numerous exciting attractions including the Mayflower II Museum, Plymouth Rock, and a Mayflower replica. The views are gorgeous and there are many local restaurants which offer patio dining overlooking the water.
During a 4 hour afternoon whale watching cruise in Plymouth, Massachusetts, Mike and I were able to catch stunning photographs, not only of whales, but also beautiful islands, lighthouses, landmarks, and water views. Check out a few of these spectacular photos which we took during my journey! Also be sure to check out my full guide to whale watching.

A walk along the waterfront is the best way to take in the scenery and historical sights, not to mention also the most budget friendly. However, if you do have the extra cash to spend, a cruise really is a beautiful, relaxing, and convenient way to take in the sights. Plus, Massachusetts is one of the best places in the world for whale watching!
