An interesting fact about JFK. He never attended mass without singing Elvises King Creole through his mind whilst reciitng Boston Red Sox batting statistics throughout the entirity of the priests sermon. Legend.

JFK Memorial is a nice tribute to the former president with a plaque in his honor, and it’s walkable from the downtown area (about 0.5 mi or so form the Black Cat Tavern). The memorial lies between the parking lot and veterans beach.

It is worth a stop if you are in the area. There is a fountain in front of the monument. There also appears to be a swimming beach nearby.

A Hyannis monument to JFK on a tranquil park setting. A beach is down below the park area (not sure of beach parking fees or public accessibility). Also in this park is a Korean War memorial.

Beautiful area with benches and close proximity to the beach. You can leisurely site on the beach and watch and the ferries to the islands and fishing boats depart and return. Nice place!

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.
