Here it is the first day of summer in New England and, for many, the beginning of school summer vacation!

This summer, The Weekly New England Travel and Vacation Gazette will be featuring many well-known and hidden New England vacation attractions and destinations to help with your New England summer trip planning. We'll feature extended vacation ideas, as well as day trip and "stay cation" ideas. Always feel free to write the Weekly New England Travel and Vacation Gazette on your favorite things to do during the New England summer  vacation and we'll consider it for publication.

Today, we start things off by traveling to the Mayflower II in Plymouth, Mass.,  a true-to-life replica of the ship that landed the Pilgrims in America. Plymouth has many fantastic travel attractions -- mostly centering on the Pilgrims -- and the Mayflower II serves as a great start of an entertaining and educational day in the Plymouth area. Included on this tour are authentic sights and sounds of Pilgrim history and culture by visiting the various parts of the ship, and hearing the "story" from costumed tour guides. Located at lively Plymouth Harbor and just across from the legendary Plymouth Rock in the pleasing 11-acre Pilgrim Memorial State Park, the Mayflower II is indeed a great New England travel attraction to start off your summer vacation.
