Pilgrim's Landing is a small tourist attraction inhabited by Panada, Tobar the Ferryman and Nadine. It is the closest thing to actual civilization in Point Lookout.


Pilgrims Landing served as a small tourist attraction in Point Lookout before the War, but has since been abandoned. Only Madame Panada at her House of Wares a short way north of the boardwalk remain as a sign of civilization. The main dock area spans east-west and is littered with popcorn bags and other carnival food containers.



Notable loot

  • Beneath the closest buoy to the ferry is some good loot inside an average locked safe and a footlocker, as well as a mini nuke.


  • Smugglers may randomly spawn here.
  • If you use the tcl command and walk through the diner walls, a Pulowski Preservation shelter is hidden inside, containing the non-player character that is the projected voice of The Brain.
  • From the name, it could be hinted as to where pilgrims landed 500 years previous.
  • It appears at one point that a number of the inaccessible shops in the area were to have interiors, based on unused cells in the GECK, but were cut early in the developement process.



Pilgrim's Landing appears only in the Fallout 3 add-on Point Lookout.


  • PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png There is a common glitch where the player will randomly be informed that The Brain is unconscious whenever they go near the boardwalk, even if he is dead. This is because the brain's reference actor resides in an unopenable Pulowski Preservation shelter hidden inside the walls of the soda shop neighboring the Homestead Motel, and is possibly falling through the map and being knocked out due to fall damage. Players can also see the friendly non-player character marker for The Brain on the compass if they stand near the ferris wheel.
