Step into the quaint world of New England’s Cape Cod and step back to another time—when JFK was a young man sailing the waters off his hometown of Hyannis Port, and when fishing was the area’s dominant industry.

Visit the other part of Massachusetts—a world away from the crowds of Boston. Head for Cape Cod, and enter a world of sand dunes, whimsical beaches, and the historic hometown of the Kennedys. This all-day excursion (approximately 9 hours) includes a tour of Cape Cod’s highlights, a cruise, and also time for lunch, shopping, and sightseeing on your own.

Your Brush Hill Tour bus ride will begins by taking you south of the city (turn around for great views of the Boston skyline as you head south!), hugging the coast as you make your way toward Cape Cod.   Here’s a look at the highlights of your Cape Cod bus tour:

Cape Cod Canal: This man-made body of water, part of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, connects Cape Cod to the mainland of Massachusetts. Two picturesque bridges, the Bourne and the Sagamore, connect the land masses.

Hyannis Port: This quaint residential Cape Cod village (located in Barnstable, MA) is the summer playground of many of New England’s wealthiest residents. It is also home to the Kennedy Compound, several elite yacht clubs, and was the final residence of Ted, Joseph and Rose Kennedy.

John F. Kennedy Memorial: You will pay a visit to this unique, multimedia exhibit that gives you a glimpse into the Cape Cod life of JFK and his family. Learn how he relaxed here, playing football on the beach and sailing on the ocean with his family and friends. 80 photographs spanning the years 1934 to 1963 are arranged thematically to show you the different areas of his life, along with a video narrated by Walter Cronkite that goes into depth about JFK’s personal experiences on the cape.

Kennedy Compound views: From your tour, you’ll be at a unique vantage point to see the six-acre waterfront property that sits on the Nantucket Sound in Hyannis Port. This impressive estate was the home of Joseph P. Kennedy, Sr., his wife Rose Kennedy, and their two sons John F. and Robert F. Kennedy. During his presidential campaign, John F. Kennedy used the compound as his political headquarters.

Lobster Boat Restaurant: A Cape Cod favorite, this waterfront restaurant offers an authentic New England dining experience. The Lobster Boat serves the freshest local seafood, supplied directly from its own fish market that sits on the property. Lobster, cod, and great beer are in abundance.

Narrated Harbor Cruise: This narrated cruise around Hyannis Harbor will give you unique views of the Kennedy Compound, and let you see this quaint seaside New England village from the water. Don’t forget your camera for postcard-quality shots!

Comments about Smart Destinations :

This tour of Cape Code and Hyannis was such a wonderful day. The bus ride was comfortable and the tour visited great locations and resturant areas. A boat ride to view the Kennedy Compound was a extra plus. I loved this tour--we had a wonderful day despite the rain!
