02360 Travel Guide
If you ever wanted to go back to a simpler time of Thanksgiving without the hassle of planes, trains, automobiles and WiFi, say to the time of the very first Thanksgiving, then Plimouth Plantation may be the right place for Thanksgiving 2010. (Or Thursday, if you find yourself in the New England area with no concrete dinner plans.)
The heritage site, where the first Thanksgiving is believed to be held, does Thanksgiving dinner every year. Er, we should call that dinners as there are multiple dining options from a buffet to a Victorian Thanksgiving dinner to an all-day Thanksgiving celebration. But this place is also way more than Thanksgiving dinner. Plimouth Plantation has done its best to recreate the time and living conditions of 1621 when pilgrims celebrated the first Thanksgiving here.
Fortunately, Plimouth doesn't gloss over the lives and stories of the Native Americans that inhabited the land long before English settlers showed up. The Wampanoag Homesite actually tells the story of the English settlers arriving from an Indigenous point of view.
