If you appreciate a good burger, THIS is your spot. The menu varies with seasonal specials, but it also has its regular menu, with each burger being so special you'll think: "Why didn't I think of this combination?". We find ourselves returning again and again to try out yet another new option on that menu. And don't get me started on the truffle fries.....

Miles and miles of trails through pine woods and cranberry bogs as well as wildlife sanctuaries make you forget how closer you actually are to civilization. Be sure to look at a map before you go, or better yet, bring one along with you. There really are MILES of trails to explore - and one can easily get lost if one doesn't pay attention to the well-marked paths.

Find out how the pilgrims lived, when they first arrived in the area in 1620. Experience encounters with these first settlers in the open-air museum, complete with costumes and historical re-enactors, who have no idea that time has progressed beyond their era. Ask them about electricity or telephones and you will be met by a blank look. The Plimouth Plantation is closed during the winter months, but there is an inside farmer's market during that time in the vistor center.
