Hyannis is full of Kennedy memories. The harbor tour shows you the Kennedy compound. They point out the memorial. The view from the water does not do it justice. It is just a short way from Hyannis harbor. The best way to see it is...More

This buffet is absolute astoundingly delicious and worth a trip out on the Cape, if it is only to “eat here!” This is not your “typical buffet food”, with tons of fried foods, pasta dishes and the ever present salad greens, etc. I normally avoid...More

This is a nice quiet spot overlooking the harbour. I think it must be more significant to Americans than foreign visitors. The water level in the reflecting pool was low so there was no reflection. It is not the greatest monument to a President that...More

This memorial to JFK is beautiful. It is in a very peaceful spot on the water near Veterans Park not far from the Kennedy compound.

This Memorial is dedicated to our late President JFK. It is an open outdoors reflective space with benching and a nice view of the harbor. It will be appreciated by the adults but children might get bored quickly. If you remember... “Ask NOT what your...More

We stopped to see this veterans park while we were in the area. The JFK memorial is well done and overlooks the ocean. The Korean's Memorial is outstanding too.

It would be approximately a 25 minute drive from Brewster to Hyannis. This time of year would be an easy drive, not much tourist traffic as yet.
