Stopped here on our Cape Cod excursion in September. Very few people around so had the Memorial to ourselves. It is simple and tastefully presented. I would not recommend using the public toilets nearby (I stress they are not part of the Memorial), dire.

This was a simply done monument/memorial. There is a nice view of the harbor and it is attached to a park that is also worth a walking visit.

Ignoring the politics and history of the man, it is a fitting place to sit and remember the good and the bad of a very complex character. Pitched just about right.

If you are visiting Hyannis the John F. Kennedy memorial is worth the stop. It is a quiet restful place to think about JFK and his life and presidency. The view is incredible at this simple memorial.

If you're close by, I feel this memorial is worth a stop. The memorial itself is a simple tribute, and the location is nice. There are plenty of benches provided to sit and rest. The ferries pass by here as well coming in and out...More

It would be approximately a 25 minute drive from Brewster to Hyannis. This time of year would be an easy drive, not much tourist traffic as yet.
