In 2020 we celebrate the 400th Anniversary of the Pilgrim landing in Plymouth, MA. Let us not forget, they first landed in Provincetown on Cape Cod. The Pilgrim Landing Trail is intended to educate visitors and be a unique opportunity to visit these locations and explore the experiences of the Pilgrims on Cape Cod. History lovers will enjoy a great day trip, or weekend escape, while touring the historic Cape Cod locations and stopping along the way for lunch or dinner at one of the many area restaurants.
