Plymouth

Overview

Introduction

Located 8 mi/13 km northwest of Scarborough, Plymouth is famous for the Mystery Tombstone of Betty Stiven. She died, probably during childbirth, in 1783. The headstone's enigmatic inscription has puzzled passers-by ever since: "She was a mother without knowing it, and a wife, without letting her husband know it, except by her kind indulgences to him." You may spend most of your vacation mulling over those words.

Also in the area is Fort James, a small coastal fortification built by the British in 1768. It affords panoramic views of Great Courland Bay. The fort is free and open round-the-clock. This fort is also home to the Plymouth Jazz Festival, now part of the Tobago Jazz Experience, which takes place in April and features much more than jazz, with such headliners in the past as Sting, Stevie Wonder and Elton John.
