Thanksgiving has become known for extreme overeating and overspending. But we ought to spend at least a few moments in mind of its 1621 origins near where the Mayflower landed, at Plymouth, Massachusetts. After an abundant harvest season, Native Americans and Pilgrims both expressed their gratitude in accordance with their respective traditions.
Fast forward nearly 400 years, and Plymouth is still the site of much abundance. Today, it enjoys close proximity to Boston, beautiful views of Cape Cod Bay, and a thriving tourism industry — all while retaining its small town charm.

This spacious waterfront estate on Plymouth Harbor could have played host to pretty much the entire 102 passengers that arrived on the Mayflower. The ocean and harbor views provide a modern window into the passage of history where the first settlers docked in 1620.
