About the Area
Plymouth, Massachusetts, considered ‘America’s Hometown’, has played an important role in American colonial history. Since being established in 1620 by the ‘pilgrims’, English separatists who protested the work of the Church of England, Plymouth appealed to the crew of The Mayflower, who were looking for sheltered waters and a safe harbor. Over the centuries, Plymouth remained a quiet seacoast town whose livelihood depended upon fishing and the maritime trades. Today, this tradition continues, although Plymouth has grown to become a vibrant, major economic and tourist-dependent community along the South Shore.
Centrally located on the Massachusetts coast, Brewer Plymouth Marine is an ideal home port and a convenient departure point for accessing both exceptional cruising grounds and legendary fishing sites. Daytrips to the south include: Provincetown, the Elizabeth Islands, Woods Hole, Nantucket, and Martha's Vineyard, while to the north: Boston, Marblehead, and Salem are within reach. Nicely situated along the shore of a narrow barrier beach, dotted with summer homes, Brewer Plymouth Marine is within walking distance of Plymouth's downtown Harbor District, Plymouth Rock, The Mayflower II, as well as historic homes, museums, antique stores, and restaurants. Rich in history, Plymouth offers visitors many opportunities for touring and exploring.
