Hyannis Port, the name itself, suggests so much history given the Kennedy years. People here honored their favorite son with the JFK Museum. President Kennedy's Museum and Library with all of his presidential papers and history is just outside of Boston. Here, the JFK Museum is small and more personal. Mostly homey pictures of the Kennedys with some anecdotes.
Senator Ted Kennedy's accomplishments are acknowledged here as well, but the most interesting to me was a video of Rose Fitzpatrick Kennedy giving a tour for NBC of her house and pictures and artifacts of their political life stretching back to Hoover and Roosevelt. An admirable woman who lived with greatness and great tragedy.

does shell wreaths with local shells only. She was a kick. She told me building her wreaths made her hungry for all the shellfish they represented and she'd have to go out and gorge. Good thing she wasn't painting cows.
Roberta Anslow, also had a different take on photography.
The individual shacks had woodcarvers, knot tying, quilt making, greeting cards and stained glass. A beautiful garden of buoys led us to the Harbor on one side. Loved it.
The museum had 27 models of ships, and a short history of the area. It had one section devoted to pirates that children would enjoy. One female pirate and others I had never heard of before.
Hyannis Port has plenty to do, a lot of night life, plays, art, wine, beer tasting, music and events for anyone's taste. We passed a park setting up booths and the band was already playing. The music was more the hard rock type and we skipped it. For a look at more photos:
