One of my absolute favorite places to go in Plymouth is Ellisville Harbor State Park. Conveniently located just off Route 3A on the south side of town, the coastal property features meadows, marshland and a sandy path that winds through a red pine forest and out to a secluded beach. Being an avid beachcomber, I’ve walked the rocky shoreline in all four seasons, but particularly enjoy visiting in the fall and winter when harbor seals can be spotted balancing on large boulders and soaking up sunshine.
When we set out to create Plymouth Magazine, one of our main goals was to highlight the fantastic things there are to see and do in this historic town. As the editor of South Shore Living magazine, I was excited to have another opportunity to showcase Plymouth’s great local businesses and restaurants and profile people in the community who help make Plymouth such a wonderful place to live and work.
The premiere issue of Plymouth Magazine kicks off with an in-depth cover story penned by maritime historian John Galluzzo about the efforts to restore the iconic Mayflower II in time for the town’s big celebration in 2020 that will commemorate the 400th anniversary of the founding of Plymouth Colony. And while we’re on the topic of major milestones, there’s also a feature on Plymouth Philharmonic’s 100th. As you continue flipping through the pages of this issue you’ll discover stories that go behind the scenes at local bakeries and restaurants as well as inside the seaside home of a local interior designer. You can read about Plymouth Yacht Club’s youth sailing program, meet a few “Faces of Plymouth” who work on the waterfront and much more. From boutique hopping on Court Street to romantic oyster dinners on a sandbar, Plymouth is full of surprises and we can’t wait to share them with you.
