For the historian:
Jenney Grist Mill
This place is great for older children, especially if they are interested in history and science. I have been on this tour twice and have learned something new each time.

Jabez Howland House
This home is the only one surviving from the seventeenth century. This a definite treat for the eyes.
I have a confession: I love cemeteries. This happens to be one of the oldest in the country and is wonderful to explore.
For the liquor snob:
Dirty Water Distillery
During the summer, take a tour of Mayflower Brewing Company. During the rest of the year, hit up Dirty Water Distillery. Pro-Tip: Email the owners beforehand to schedule a tour.

For the stroller:
Brewster Gardens is lovely. It is a great place to take a walk, admire the statues and squeal over ducklings.
For the ghost hunter:
Dead of Night Ghost Tour
I have never done this, but I have heard good things about this tour. Check out this website for more details.

I hope that this post has encouraged you to not only explore lesser known sites in Plymouth,but wherever you go. I feel that whenever one visits a new place or even their hometown, there is so much pressure to visit the super-touristy sites. While a number of these sites are popular for a reason, there are so many hidden treasures worth digging for. I charge you with finding some place new and creating your own unique memories!
