Plymouth County doesn’t vanish in winter; in fact, it transforms to a place of subtle natural outdoor beauty, indoor family fun, and fabulous shopping opportunities.
Pilgrim Hall Museum (1824) is a treasured space to explore (closed January) and each year a new temporary exhibit is unveiled. You will be deeply impressed by the steely souls of the earliest Pilgrim arrivals.
For terrific family fun, consider the Water Park at the Cape Codder Resort and Spa in nearby Hyannis.
The County offers great shopping. Wareham Crossing in Wareham and Derby Street Shops in Hingham tie the region together with great dining, which adds to bargain-hunting pleasure. In Plymouth, Village Landing Marketplace is reminiscent of seaside shops of yesteryear even as it offers goods we treasure today.
Colony Place continues to wow the shopping public as new stores appear and the variety of shops continues to please. A must-stop for quality purchases and appealing craftwork is the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton.
