Plymouth – Plymouth is a coastal community approximately 5 miles north of the Cape Cod Canal. It is the seat of Plymouth County, and has the largest area of any town in the Commonwealth. For most of its existence, Plymouth was an isolated seacoast area linked to the sea and shipping. The site of the original 1620 settlement is now a portion of today’s Downtown/Harbor District. Plymouth is a tourism destination boasting: “Plimoth Plantation,” a reconstruction of the original Plymouth colony as well as the “Mayflower II,” a full-size operational reconstruction of the Mayflower.
Over the past 30 years Plymouth’s desirability has grown due to its accessibility to Boston via State Route 3 and commuter rail and relatively low land prices and tax rates resulting in the development of a healthy industrial and commercial base. The Town states that it is committed to controlling its residential growth while welcoming industrial and commercial expansion.

Moving to Plymouth
Like most towns on the southeastern coast, finding a place live here is very difficult. The availability of rentals is scarce to none, and those that can be found are priced way north of normal expectations.
