Hyannis is the transportation hub of Cape Cod.
Hyannis is a major tourist destination and the primary ferry boat and general aviation connection to Nantucket Island.
The JFK Hyannis Museum in the old Town Hall on Main St. focuses on John F. Kennedy’s time spent in the town. There is a memorial to President Kennedy on the Lewis Bay waterfront that was erected by Barnstable citizens in 1966. The memorial includes a fountain and a field-stone monument with the presidential seal and JFK inscription: “I believe it is important that this country sail and not sit still in the harbor“.
