If you are anywhere near Coolidge Corner, the Kennedy birthplace is a short walk. Very nice 30-minute tour by the Park Service ranger. Stay for the short video about Rose Kennedy. Nice little gift shop. Beautiful setting on Beals Street.

History and President buffs will all be fascinated by and thoroughly enjoy a visit to JFK's birthplace. It's easy to get to by car, bus or trolley in the heart of Brookloine's Coolidge Corner.

The park service employees were wonderful but there wasn't much of a story to be told here. After hearing about all the delightful dinnertime conversations in the Kennedy household I was in desperate need of a coffee IV. Fortunately there was a Starbucks nearby...

We had a nice visit to President Kennedy's Birthplace. The staff was really nice and our guide was excellent. He really gave a lot of information about the family during the years they lived here. Neat to hear Rose Kennedy talk about the home and the family. In a lot of ways, this site is a tribute to her. If in the area, it is worth seeing.
