Plymouth, MA & Thank you!
As you most likely know Plymouth, MA was the site of the first Thanksgiving. It was where the first colony was established by those from the Mayflower in 1620.
Plymouth's population at the time would have been small as many people perished on the way over. The first Thanksgiving was to celebrate their deliverance.
In perspective, the U.S. census in 2010 showed Plymouth's population to be 56,468.
Plymouth has not always been the site of tourism but that of capitalism considering its location. Plymouth was known for its fishing, shipping and rope making. This helped the city to survive.
Now that tourism is its main attraction, one can see those things made most famous like Plymouth Rock. Although there is no written historical proof that this was the landing site of the pilgrims, it is the most well known and most identified place.
Although much of things that supposedly happened at Plymouth are most likely that of myth than anything, it is still known for its rich heritage and will be a tourist dream for years to come.
I want to thank each and everyone who visits my blog and buys my books. I am grateful for all of you.
From me to you, Happy Thanksgiving!
