The jfk memorial is very well kept lot of history. The vets have a booth and sell hats also accept donation to help kids . I highly recommended visiting it if you are in that area.

This is a nice place to visit and give thanks and having the water right there is a nice bonus. There is a pretty fountain in front. Make sure you go around and visit both sides

Not sure what is special about this memorial. My son thought it was a giant penny. Maybe if I was alive during the Kennedy era it would have been more interesting. For what it is worth my mom thought it was nice to see.

The museum consisted primarily of photographs with explanations but it was well done. It felt very intimate.

My husband and I were visiting Cape Cod and spent time in Hyannis. We saw many tributes to our former president in his summer home but we liked the beauty and simplicity of this memorial. It overlooks the beach and the waters where he swam and sailed.

The sunrise is spectacular. Watching the sailboats from the Hyannis Yacht club is worth photographing, and an endless stream of ferry boats in and out of Lewis Bay. The saltwater is warm clean and invigorating not to mention the new playground for the children and adults alike.
