The official tourism agency for the town and county of Plymouth has welcomed visitors to Plymouth and Plymouth County for over 25 years
Plymouth, MA (December 4, 2020) – Overlooking Shirley Square in Plymouth’s historic district, See Plymouth is excited to announce its new location. On the corner of Court Street and North Street, the group is situated in the front part of the former Santander Bank building.
“We will be out on the street serving up hot cider and cookies during the Plymouth Chamber Holiday Stroll on Thursday and Friday, December 10 and 11,” said Lea Filson, Executive Director. “A live radio remote on WATD on Thursday, December 10 will announce the new location and also encourage regional Christmas shoppers to ‘shop Plymouth’ Thursday through Sunday.”
See Plymouth, a membership organization, was founded in 1972 as the Plymouth County Convention and Visitors Bureau, operated by the Plymouth County Development Council (PCDC). In 1992, Destination Plymouth (DP), funded by the town of Plymouth, became an equal partner and both organizations became the official tourism organization for the town and county of Plymouth, MA. In 2019, the organizations were branded as See Plymouth. Both a Destination Management Organization and the Convention Visitors Bureau for the town and county of Plymouth, MA, See Plymouth is responsible for promotion of the town and county as a vacation and meetings travel destination and for providing optimal visitor services.
“Tourism is the #1 industry in the town and county of Plymouth,” said Kevin Martin, President of Destination Plymouth. “In spite of the pandemic, See Plymouth has continued its advertising and marketing to keep the town and county top of mind, a very important part of bringing back a sound economy.”
See Plymouth is one of 16 Regional Tourism Councils (RTC) in the Commonwealth, working in conjunction with the MA Office of Travel and Tourism, a state agency under the umbrella of The Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development. In addition to its headquarters at 4 North Street, See Plymouth operates the Massachusetts Visitor Center located at Route 3, Exit 5 in Plymouth and the See Plymouth Waterfront Visitor Center in the Town of Plymouth.
“See Plymouth is now very visible to visitors and locals who are exploring the town and county,” said Jim Saunders, PCDC Chairman of the Board. “We wanted to be in a visible location that is accessible and convenient so that the important work of marketing our destination is noticed.”
In 2018 visitors spent $698,900,000 in Plymouth County and generated $35,600,000 in taxes for the state and $31,000,000 for the town of Plymouth.
