Stopped here on our Cape Cod excursion in September. Very few people around so had the Memorial to ourselves. It is simple and tastefully presented. I would not recommend using the public toilets nearby (I stress they are not part of the Memorial), dire.

This was a simply done monument/memorial. There is a nice view of the harbor and it is attached to a park that is also worth a walking visit.

If you are visiting Hyannis the John F. Kennedy memorial is worth the stop. It is a quiet restful place to think about JFK and his life and presidency. The view is incredible at this simple memorial.

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.
