Hyannis

Trip Planner USA  /  Massachusetts  /  Cape Cod  /  Hyannis

Capital of Cape Cod

"The Capital of the Cape," Hyannis serves as Cape Cod's main transportation and commercial hub. The harbor, often filled with private vessels maintained by avid boat enthusiasts, has become the main ferry point for transport to Nantucket Island. The seaside atmosphere prevails throughout the town, as dining establishments serve fresh, local fish and are often filled with visitors waiting for their boat's departure. Those without their own vessels can charter a cruise to the nearby islands. The large wooden homes and buildings are often painted white to reflect the sun; some of these are perched on wharfs over the water. You’ll even see short lighthouses in the town paying homage to Hyannis’ connection to the sea. Hyannis is in Cape Cod. Use our United States vacation planner to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Hyannis.
