  • This memorial was great. There was a nice pool in a serene area overlooking the bay. The memorial itself is very neat. There are benches as well so you can sit and take in your surroundings. This is a very nice place, minus the geese poop. Also check out Little Poseidon's Adventures on Google Plus, where he provides pictures and information about his journeys.
  • Horrible..you'll go there unexpectedly then he stuck there for hours
  • A cool park with a beautiful view over Lewis Bay.
  • Beautiful location and well cared for. They don't allow dogs so we sat in the shade outside of the guard's view while my husband got a closer look.
  • Beautiful memorial to JFK

Where to stay in Hyannis

Most of the town's accommodations are concentrated around the harbor and main street. bed and breakfasts, hotels, and historical inns look out over the water, stand on either side of the main street, or line the narrow side streets. Some of these offer spa services, while others have only basic amenities. Book well in advance, as lodging fills up fast, especially in the summer.
