Parked in the CCCC parking lot and strolled down to the Kennedy Museum. Many shoppes, eateries and people to look at. There was also a farmer's market outside one of the churches on Main Street and you could sample the goodies. A fun afternoon.

So, my family and I were newbies going to Cape Cod for a vacation. We went to Provincetown the first day, which don't get me wrong, was fun, but compared to here, Provincetown was for the typical tourists and was junky. Main Street was so peaceful and quiet, yet quaint and buzzling with life. We spent every night of our... More

Main Street is filled with pedestrians, candy shops, clothing shops, restaurants, cafes, JFK Museum, Cape Cod Baseball League Museum, an used book store, jewelry shops, cupcake shop, ice cream, bowling, arcade… It is a really nice and easy place to stroll along and people watch.

Hyannis MA is a real town, so its main street reflects that. Its not cleaned up for tourists, it not homogenized and swept clean of all humanity and reality. Hyannis' Main Street has shops, not tons of boutiques. Its Main Street has ice cream, not $12 cups of Gelato...but you can get a nice Gelato. It has every sort of... More

Main Street features different restaurants, live music at night, close to harbor. Restaurants in every price range; mostly souvenir shops, exactly what you expect in a town like this.

Run down and dumpy. There were more than a few unsavory characters walking around as well, including one beggar. Just never felt comfortable there and at times, unsafe. Shops were nothing great, the water wasn't close enough to walk to with kids, and many of the restaurants seemed divvy. My experience certainly didn't match the glowing, idealic description in the...

Great street to stroll down The shops are cute and varied and there is just about every food option imaginable. Live music in several restaurants serenade the walkers each evening.

Main street Hyannis is a typical touristy street with many restaurants, clothing shops and bars. It extends for several blocks. It is fun to stroll at least once and partake of the atmosphere, especially after dark. Good homemade ice cream shop about halfway up the street. JFK museum is also worth a visit if you are a JFK fan. Traffic... More

I liked the area, didn't love it. Not exactly the cape town feel that I was expecting, but we still had fun.
