Cape Cod, Mass. is one of the greatest hubs in New England and on that cape are many villages. Most associate the Kennedy family with the village of Hyannis, which is rich in Kennedy history. One way to see much of the history, without much effort, is to visit the JFK Hyannis Museum.
Right in the middle of Main Street, lies the brick building with a bronze statue of young John F. Kennedy, pants legs rolled up and walking in a patch of sand and beach grass. The museum is dedicated to the Cape Cod years of the family, when John would play football on the beach as a youth with his siblings as kids and tour the Atlantic Ocean on their yacht. During the earlier years of the Kennedy administration, newsreels showed the growing Kennedy family at holidays again playing football on the beach with their wives and children.
As the fiftieth anniversary of Kennedy’s assassination rapidly approaches; a must-see exhibit “Cape Cod: The Summer of 1963 to November 22, 1963 – Days of joy. Days of sorrow.”
