“A Walk Down Memory Lane”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

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.

“An Awesome Perspective”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

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 what we have accomplished.

“BAD!,,Don't go!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

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 have to face!! STAY AWAY!!

“Poignant and a little haunting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

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.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

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!
