Welcome to Plymouth
A sprawling city full of urban amenities and historic grandeur
The namesake of Plymouth County, Plymouth is also known as “America’s Hometown.” Perched on the coast of Massachusetts, this city unwinds with true American charm complete with urban sensibilities and luxury amenities. As the oldest municipality in the United States, it has had time to fully blossom into the unbeatable city it is today. Plymouth is full of community, activity, and historic renown, and is even the largest municipality in all of Massachusetts.
Home to more than historic charm, Plymouth also boasts its fair share of historic homes. Architectural styles pepper the tree-lined streets, offering Cape homes and more in a variety of styles such as Colonial, Queen Anne, gracious ranch style homes, and more. Thanks to its urban locale, Plymouth is also home to state-of-the-art condominiums, apartments, and new luxury estates. Between historic charm and modern luxury, the hometown of America has it all.

Enveloped by some of the United States' earliest and most famous history, Plymouth is home to a rustic charm that perfectly mixes with its sprawling, urban sensibilities. Locals and tourists alike can visit an outdoor living history museum as easily as they can access modern luxuries such as top-end boutiques, fine dining, and more. Plymouth is home to just over 60,000 people, and the median age of a resident is 44. Residents often own their homes and enjoy the sparse, suburban feel as much as the urban vibe. Strolling along historic streets, spending time watching ocean waves wash up on the shore, or visiting the great shopping districts are all favorite ways to spend a weekend or enjoy the sunny summer days. But in the winter, Plymouth still has a lot to offer: the holidays have never looked more picturesque than in this historic New England town. Steeped in history and brimming with modern luxury, Plymouth is a sprawling urban center ideal for anyone who values natural beauty in addition to the urban atmosphere.
