Hyannis Port is situated along the shores of the ocean in Cape Cod. This village essentially consists of residents leading a quiet life by the sea side. There are many Yacht and Golf clubs here, including the Hyannis Port Yacht Club. Also, the very popular "Annual Figawi Race" sets off at this place. It is also home to the Kennedy Compound, which is on the National Register of Historic Places.
This brick tower is not remarkable for its architecture; it does, however, have a great view. Located on top of the 160-foot (50-meter) Scargo Hill in Dennis (the highest point on the Cape), a clear day allows views of the Provincetown Monument and mainland Massachusetts. In almost any weather condition you can see Scargo Lake, which was named after a Native American princess. You may find it a romantic spot too, especially for sunsets and star gazing.
Although referred to as a bike trail, this paved path also welcomes walking, running, horseback riding and rollerblading. Built on an old railway bed, the scenic 25-mile (40-kilometer) trail takes you from Yarmouth to Dennis to Wellfleet via cranberry bogs, lakes and towns. Nickerson State Park, off Route 6A in Brewster, maintains the trail and is at the halfway point.
