Sitting right next to the Korean War Memorial, this is a beautiful setting for a couple of nice pictures of Hyannis and the Harbor. It is an open and relaxing location.

Perfect 99 minute stop in Hyannis. The hundreds of photos bring you back to another time. Great to teach the younger generation about the Kennedy family. Photos and sound clips tug at your heart if you remember JFK et al.

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.
