Capital of Cape Cod

"The Capital of the Cape," Hyannis serves as Cape Cod's main transportation and commercial hub.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Chatham Marconi Maritime Center and Edward Gorey House. Get in touch with nature at Skaket Beach and Nickerson State Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Crosby Landing Beach (in Brewster), Harding Beach (in Chatham) and Red River Beach (in Harwich). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Corporation Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Craigville Beach, and examine the collection at Whydah Pirate Museum.

Plan trip to Hyannis with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.
