I was only 4 when JFK was killed but this memorial made me realize what an impact he had on my parents and the country. Camelot revisited. You can see it all in 1 hour, worth the stop.

As a boy, I too used to "go down to the sea"...from the JFK Memorial , one has a fabulous view of Lewis Bay, Great Island (Point Gammon), and the Hyannis Yacht Club. This is the Bay that President John Kennedy sailed so often to relieve his "stress"..especially during the Cuban Missile Crisis....A wonderful place to visit, and reflect upon... More

I live nearby the Korean War Memorial and The Kennedy Memorial! Every time I take a stroll over there there is a obstacle course you must observe to avoid the Canada geese poop! They rule the place; something really should be done to deter those beasts! REALLY! It is really NOT a very welcome sigh for our visiting tourists to... More

Visited the memorial early last June on a quiet Wednesday morning. Sunny, windy day and very, very quiet which added to the sadness and haunting beauty of standing there.

Having visited this area on numerous occasions, we chose it as the setting for our wedding. It's was absolutely stunning and the photos captured this. Also an enjoyable and interesting place for my guests to see while at the wedding!

I enjoyed the chance to share this piece of History with my niece. It is very pretty, even in the winter.

It was very sad to see President Kennedy's memorial. I kept imagining him walking along the beach in Hyannis (he lived not far from this memorial site) and how he loved his 'hometown'. It was a lovely site on the beach and very well done. Worth visiting.

There is both a JFK Memorial and a museum of some of his Cape Cod memorabilia, pictures and memories. I'm old enough to remember the day he died. Regardless of politics he brought his and his family's persona to the Cape, and this place and the museum captures some of those Camelot memories.

Very well manicured park, includes a nice beach as well. Memorial represents great history. There is also a Korean War veteran's memorial here as well. A must stop in Hyannis.

The day we visited, we had it all to ourselves. Fall is the best time to visit the Cape. No crowds, no waiting. At any rate, the memorial is a great place to stop and reminisce the days the Kennedy's were in the limelight. The grounds are beautiful, as you will see by the pictures that I attach. There's no...
