A Guide for Spending February Break in Plymouth


January 3, 2023

February Break is tough to plan. You’re just getting out of the holiday season, the weather isn’t the greatest, and now you have to entertain your kids 24/7 for the next week. It’s a lot, but it’s more than doable when you have planned activities! 

In Plymouth, we pride ourselves on being able to accommodate all our visitors, and that includes making sure that parents and kiddos can enjoy a stress-free vacation with attractions that will entertain everyone!

Pilgrim Hall

Though most kids probably won’t jump at the idea of going to Pilgrim Hall, a historical museum, during February break, hear us out! While we want visitors to learn about Plymouth’s past and embark on a historical journey viewing artifacts and other treasures, we also understand the needs of our youngest guests; we want them to be happy while spending their February break in Plymouth. 

For that reason, when you visit with your child, feel free to pursue the three floors of the museum while they embark on a treasure hunt. We provide each child with a scavenger hunt booklet that combines adventure, play, history and learning to ensure they have a good time at the museum and learn something new in the process!

They will be met with prompts that require them to search for specific information like names or dates. Others will ask them to look at artifacts and craft personalized answers to questions such as “Imagine you were a Mayflower passenger and could only bring TWO artifacts with you. Which would you choose?” While other questions are purposely more educational and urge them to read plaques and write what they learned.

Plimoth Patuxet

Sometimes all you need during February vacation is to munch on some popcorn, drink a soda, and watch a good movie at the theater. Plimoth Patuxet has completely elevated that experience, and has a fully functioning cinema on their premises. 

During the months of April-November, the museum operates as a first-hand look into the history of Plymouth Colony and the Indigenous homeland, but after that, instead of visiting the museum for historical purposes, come on over to enjoy your favorite movie! With comfortable seating and state-of-the-art audio-visual technology, it’s a cinematic experience like no other.

Be sure to plan accordingly because while popcorn, candy and fountain drinks are offered daily, parents are more than welcome to enjoy beer and wine on Saturdays. Plus, if you’re looking for a unique movie night, keep an eye out for special screenings and events. It’s the ideal way to combine history and entertainment for children when spending February break in Plymouth.
