Day 1: Plimoth or Plymouth? (D)

Tonight, welcome to the17th Century! Prepared exclusively for guests of The Upper Class, tuck into an authentic Thanksgiving feast that recreates the menu from the first Thanksgiving. Will you sip the ciderkin?
Relax for two nights at the Hilton Garden Inn.
Day 2: Parade Day! (B)

Day 3: 400 Years Young (B)
Standing sentinel for 400 years, the First Parish Meetinghouse is the oldest continuous organization of any kind in the US, the centerpiece of Plymouth’s historic town square. Enjoy a guided tour of the Parish and attend morning mass if you wish.
