Plymouth Rock, Plymouth

(2.3/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
Plymouth Rock commemorates the location where Europeans first set foot onto what's now U.S. soil. Although historians disagree on whether the first pilgrims actually docked their ships on a large protruding rock in 1620, today there stands a simple boulder to commemorate the birthplace of the United States. You can view the boulder and the beautiful coastal views around the harbor, where a replica of the Mayflower II, the ship on which the pilgrims traveled across the Atlantic, resides. A visit to Plymouth Rock represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Plymouth travel itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • The rock was the center of our Plymouth history, but is often disappointing to tourists. Covered by a beautiful portico on the 300th anniversary, it is merely a rock, with no actual connect to the pil...  more »

  • DO NOT SIGN UP FOR INSURANCE WITH THIS COMPANY. I was charged 150$ with no explanation after 2 weeks of holding a policy with PRA. You have to stay on hold for 45 minutes minimum everytime you call. Nobody answers the customer service emails and the representatives email you back once and then blow you off. The people that answer the calls never know the answer to your question and are not helpful. I am infuriated with this company and would not recommend it to anybody. DO NOT sign up for an insurance policy with Plymouth Rock Assurance.
  • The worst insurance company ever. Marshall Kennedy never returns calls. I own a construction company out of Massachusetts, I got hit by another truck at 495 and I have been trying to get a check of $3500 for months . People stay away from this company.
  • I am very disappointed with Plymouth Rock Assurance Boston. I moved to other state and switched to different insurance company last June. I was waiting to get my refund from them since this past June, still have not received it. They sent the refund first time just couple weeks ago in my old address in Boston, though they had my new address. My friend forwarded that check to me and I deposited into my account. It turned out to be a bad check, and instead my bank charged me $12 charge back fee. i have called them more than 4 times since past June, still do not know what's going on. This company does not pays attention to details and no sense of urgency. I will never recommend this company to my friends.
  • I was very happy at first because this was by far the cheapest rate I could find for my new car. Until I got into an accident. I was stopped to let someone coming from my left pass me and the person, obviously not paying attention, drove right into me. I was cited as being at fault because I did not exercise proper caution. What more caution is there than being stopped letting him go by?? I called the following Monday (this was on a Friday night) to report the claim. The woman who took the information was great and she referred me to a claims agent. I still have not heard from this person. I called several times until finally I had to request a new agent. The new person seemed very helpful at first but then also stopped answering the phone or returning calls. I called again once I got the letter saying that I was fault, and the person who answered said three times that he tried to go get Tyler (my claim agent) but he was on the phone. I called back to someone else to find out that Tyler isn't even in the office. Blatantly lied to me. When they reviewed the notes they said that after they interviewed the witness and took pictures they determined my fault. I called the witness and they to this day have never even contacted him. They finally put me through to the supervisor who surprise surprise didn't answer and still hasn't called me back. Absolutely awful customer service and once I can get this figured out and hopefully get this undeserving surcharge off my report, I will likely be switching.
  • Worse insurance someone could get ! Only gave me headache on top of headache ! And i cancelled my policy with them and continue receiving annoying emails and letters from them !! Was in a car accident that was the other drivers fault and they put my vehicle in a 3 month invetigation saying i had to pay 2 deductables because there was no one all the damange was caused by that accident. I had to get a lawyer and miss time from work and theres nothing i regret more than getting insuared with them in the first place ! Dont do it !
