"The Capital of the Cape," Hyannis serves as Cape Cod's main transportation and commercial hub.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Edward Gorey House and Nobska Point Lighthouse. Get some cultural insight at Cape Cod Museum of Natural History and JFK Hyannis Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Hyannis: Plimoth Plantation (in Plymouth), Chatham Lighthouse Beach (in Chatham) and Old Silver Beach (in Falmouth). Spend the 28th (Fri) exploring nature at Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Kalmus Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Nauset Beach, see the interesting displays at Heritage Museums & Gardens, and do a tasting at Newport Vineyards.

For where to stay, reviews, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read our Hyannis holiday planner.
