Hyannis, Massachusetts, is a town on Massachuset’s Cape Cod peninsula. Today, Hyannis is a popular tourist destination. However, Hyannis and Cape Cod played a pivotal role in American colonial history. The first settlers to Hyannis arrived in the late 1600s. By the early 1700s, Hyannis and the surrounding area became known as “the Port” and enjoyed a thriving hub of marine activity. Over the years, many dignitaries and U.S. presidents have visited Hyannis or called Hyannis home to include Presidents Grant, Cleveland, and of course, John F. Kennedy.

Kalmus Beach and Seagull Beach allow residents and tourists to enjoy Cape Cod by walking along quiet stretches of beach. Hyannis is also home to charming historical buildings and the John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum. After visiting the museum, visitors and residents can walk down Hyannis Main Street, home to unique restaurants, bars, and retail shops.
