This sightseeing tour begins with a convenient hotel pickup for those staying in select, downtown Boston.
Then it’s a 1.5-hour drive to Hyannis Port, a small residential village and affluent summer community on Hyannis Harbor. It’s also the largest recreational boating port on Cape Cod and the former home of President John F. Kennedy, who used three houses and six acres of land as a “Kennedy Compound.” It served as a headquarters for his Presidential campaign in 1960 and later as a summertime White House retreat until his death in 1963.
Visit John F. Kennedy Memorial Park on Lewis Bay, then get a perfect view of the Kennedy Compound when the tour continues with a narrated sightseeing cruise (weather dependent) along Cape Cod Canal.
Next, we will head to Sandwich and stop at the Sandwich Glass Museum. Explore the museum and its nearly 5,000 pieces of glass; take the opportunity to watch a 20 minute glass blowing demonstration.
Spend the rest of the day browsing Cape Cod’s variety of gift shops, independent stores, bookstores and specialty boutiques and buy lunch at one of the many village restaurants.
Please note: This is a seasonal tour that operates from June-September.
