The Mayflower, having crossed the Atlantic in just over two months, made landfall on Cape Cod in November 1620 and came to anchor in what is now Provincetown Harbor. The ship and most of its passengers remained at that location for more than a month while some of the immigrants explored the Cape in search of a place to settle. Join Robert Charles Anderson and other Mayflower experts as we explore New England and gain an understanding of the challenges facing the Pilgrims in the earliest months and years of settlement. Our tour begins in Boston at New England Historic Genealogical Society before heading to the Mirbeau Inn in Plymouth, our base for five days. We will immerse ourselves in Pilgrim history with visits to Plimoth Plantation, the Pilgrim Hall Museum, the Alden Family Sites, Old Burying Ground, Jabez Howland House, Provincetown Museum, and more. Throughout the trip, we’ll enjoy guidance from talented academic leadership, behind-the-scenes visits, special presentations, and traditional New England fare.
