West Hyannisport Things to Do
Right by the JFK memorial on the town's seacoast. I love the contrast of the blues and greens in this picture.
I'm sure the Kennedy family still keeps a boat or two docked here. :)
This is the JFK memorial site in West Hyannisport, right on the harbor.
The area is very serene and has a great view towards the sea, looking south. There is 30 minute parking for free by the monument, so you can have time to walk around the harbor area as well.
I'm not a big fan of the Kennedy family, but I wanted to get a glimpse of the historic (notorious?) Kennedy Compound in Hyannisport. You can get right up to the front drive, and it's quite a little estate. :)
West Hyannisport Favorites
Favorite thing: We happened to be in Hyannisport just a few weeks after JFK, Jr. died suddenly in a plane crash. So as we drove by the Kennedy Compound, we saw this memorial to the former President's son.
