About 3 miles to the north of Plimoth Plantation, at the Plymouth waterfront, sits the Mayflower II, a 1957 recreation of the 1620 version. Like the original, the Mayflower II sailed across the Atlantic, from England, where she was built. The ship is still sailworthy and manages to leave the docks from time to time.
