    It was very interesting to see all about JFK. Not a real history person but this place I did learn al lot about him. A must see thing to do if ever in Cape Cod.

    I was nervous about this trip because my husband is handicapped. The crew were amazing! And they are so incredibly organized, from lining the cars into numbered lanes for boarding, to making sure we were parked near the elevator for my husband to have easy access. It was a very pleasant trip and the offloading was just as easy and organized as the boarding. Hope to take them to Nantucket next year.

    Disappointing that many places were closed, either for the season, or due to it being Monday. I would never go here in the summer; I think I would hate the amount of people, so not sure what the sweet spot is when places are open, but you're not stuck in a mass of humanity. We did find a couple of cool places, but again, SO many were closed...

    This is right on Veterans Beach surrounded by flowers and a beautiful fountain. The Korean war memorial is adjacent to this and the beach is right there along side the HYC.

    We went looking for the Kennedy Hyannisport compound. Never did find it. Went to the JFK museum. CLOSED on a tourist Sunday. I had first drunk Cape Cod beer (Beach Blonde Ale) near Provincetown. I liked it so much that I bought a case to bring home to Ohio. Then I drank some Cape Cod Red in Hyannis and decided it was time to visit the brewery which was nearby.

    A brewery tour was - of course - not avaiable but had a good time regardless. They had music and a food truck run by a Food Channel guy of some renown called The Phantom Gourmet. We tried a six-beer tasting and I decided I still liked the Blonde and the Red the best. The wheat beer came in third.

    Nice place to visit, kick back, try some beers, have something to eat and listen to the music. The gals were very friendly and the atmosphere was totally casual.

    Clean, white sand. Kids enjoyed gathering shells. It was too cold to swim. Nice rest rooms. We did not eat at the snack bar.

    Visited the park while touring Cape Cod with a group of seniors.

    Veterans Memorial Park is located on Veterans Beach overlooking Lewis Bay. It includes the John F. Kennedy Memorial and the Cape and Island Korean War Veterans Memorial.

    The memorials are awesome and a “must visit” type of attraction. A wonder tribute and piece of history.

    Took the Father’s Day Brunch Train. For the most part it was a fun experience. There was a guide who pointed out interesting sights along the way. Nice music played between her narrative one way but for some reason not the way back. The food was good except that I have a gluten allergy and was very limited to my choice for my meal. I wrote in ahead of time but it wasn’t addressed at all before or during the ride. I take full responsibility for not being more vocal about it and just ate around what I thought wouldn’t make me sick. For the price ($144 for 2), it would have been nice if coffee and or juice were included but we paid extra for that. I’d definitely recommend it if there are no dietary restrictions in your party.

    Small, unique, priceless museum. If mariner history or boat building is of interest, it shouldn't be missed.

    We ate at the restaurant where this tree is located. It is called Anejo, I believe. It was a good mexican restaurant and it was lovely eating under the canopy of the tree. They have really made the tree part of the ambience and it works well. The tree is large and has light strung underneath it. It is well maintained and worth a look. So beautiful!

    Wow. What a fun place and great beers to try. The only downside to the visit was that I took home a 4 pack of the Mango Milkshake and the cans were mislabeled and it was a dark ale instead. However, I’d definitely come back. Staff was extremely friendly.

    If you are looking for an easy hike this is it. Just be careful of the tree roots. Very pretty hike around the pond-you can't get lost.

    We had been to this facility several years ago. We booked an overnight to take our 8 year old grandson for a mini-vacation before school started. The room was comfortable and met our needs. Due to COVID-19, we were told that no staff would come into our room. If we needed something, we could call the desk and it would be dropped at our door. We did not need anything extra during our stay.
    Front desk and cleaning staff were all good. My major disappointment regarding staff was the quality of the lifeguards in the Water Park. We have taken our grandson to a number of different Water Parks. We found the Water Park staff here the least attentive of any place we have been. There were one or two who we would say were paying attention to the people in the water. I always believe it is my responsibility to pay attention to my grandson. However, it is nice to have a sense that the people working at a location which presents an opportunity for a variety of health & safety issues take their job seriously. Most of the lifeguards looked like they were bored to death and just bidding time to get their shift over with. Watching a lifeguard sitting at her station braiding her hair seemed really inappropriate.
    I would go to this facility again, but would not recommend it to anyone with very young children.

    My daughter and I rode a bus to and from Hyannis and walked and took an Uber in the Hyannis area. The transportation center had a nice indoor waiting area, clean bathrooms, and was easy to navigate.
